COVE BAY ICE REPORT 12/27-7:00 PM

Recommended Posts

WildernessWarmth

well here we go, not much ice has been made in the last week except on our roads. The bay road has about 14-17 inches depending which end of the bay. The ice thickness off the road in the bay is between 11-14 inches depending on snow cover and there are still many spots with slush! Our road to the main lake has between 12-14 inches and the ice thickness off the road is between 9-10 inches with some spots less under slush! We need COLD WEATHER to make ice and freeze up the hidden spots of slush. We hope to get to our other structures soon, but we need more ice for vehicle travel to these spots. We recommend light houses and atv or snomobiles for main lake travel off the roads. There is still a lot of snow cover on the bay and main lake causing a nice insulation barrier and preventing the slush and water from freezing. And please 10 mph speed with vehicles on roads (THANKS)remember to block your houses up high when leaving to prevent any slush from freezeing down your house (WE KNOW MOST PEOPLE KNOW BUT FOR THOSE WHO DON'T) GOOD LUCK,BE PATIENT ICE WILL COME AND MOST OF ALL BE SAFE,CHECK ICE CONDITIONS AND LET'S GET SOME FISH!!!

Yes we are letting trucks pull smaller wheel houses out however suggest using atvs for the larger ones. We will plow spots off the road for wheel houses.

      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 !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
