Tough to get around - pretty good slush pockets. Spent about three hours out there today with my son and son-in-law. We got three jumbo perch, one slimer in the slot we had to release (almost exactly 30 inches) and one that we couldn't quite stretch to 24' so kept for some moiakka. Talked to three others who had some snake action but that was it. Also talked to a guy coming off the lake on Sunday who had skiied out looking for crappies but didn't have any luck. All on the west end of the lake. Talked to Theresa at "Just Bite Me" and she said weren't many going out because of travel conditions. frown.gif

Anything happening over on your end of the lake?

Hey Ken,

Are they starting to stake the snowmobile trail out on Birch Lake yet?? I see the Igloo's were out staking on Shagawa yesterday. I still think it is a little early yet to be staking trails across lakes! There should be good travel out on Birch once the snowmobile trail is marked and gets frozen down. How much ice is out there?? I really want to get out there soon! Keep us updated!

Thanks,

Justin

As of yesterday I hadn't seen any stakes yet. There have been a few going down the middle of the lake, but not nearly as many as I've seen in the past. My wife is very anxious to get out on the machines, so will be checking quite often. will pass on what I find out.

Checked the beach access for stakes today, and still nothing out from there. Have been a few machines going onto the lake, but slush in most of the tracks. frown.gif

We made our yearly trek up there and fished hard Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday was VERY slow but we did manage one 7 pounder (northern). Thursday was a little better with a few small ones and a 10 pounder thrown in for good measure.

Finn--I think that we were fishing near you guys on Wednesday right? What are those piles of snow with sticks sticking out of them towards the mouth of the river?

I was absolutely amazed at the condition of the ice. It looked like late March or April ice...yellowish in color.

Anyway....good luck to you guys.

Those sticks mark holes that other people have left so that you don't accidently step into one of 'em. Sometimes people will use "hangers", fishing line hung from sticks like that, but haven't seen them used in awhile.

Yes, I guess that was probably us next to you the other day. Probably should have gotten together for a cup of java. Glad to see you were able to get out! smile.gif

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
