I realize this is a little late, but maybe someone else can make use of the info.

Jay's roads are plowed out just past Mazominee point, with half ton trucks. 12-14 inches on-road, 10-12 inches off maintained road. Beyond that heading out into the main lake, the ice is all new formation after the winds blew first ice south last year -> it is only 9 inches thick, no driving out there, and no road either - and plenty of flooding. Jay's staked road goes out 1.5 miles or so to the first steep structure off Mazominee point. There is aan over-under heave under the snow closer to Mazominee point that keeps flooding that whole area, and that' why Jays road is running so close to the deep break right now.

Overall, the ice conditions are kind of hemming the perm shacks in close to the bay. Jay said he is putting a Suzuki Samurai with plow blade to work this weekend to try to start getting out to Kings hump.

So, with a wheelhouse, you aren't going to go very far off road, and you may need to pay Jay for a driveway spot off the road unless you are into shoveling. You'll be limited to Andersons Reef and MAzominee point if you are looking for deep breaks, otherwise, there's lots of shallow bay to fish.

Fishing-wise - a random eater walleye is being caught in the bay here and there, and there are large schools of puny perch. I've watched these perch belly-rest on top of boulders staring at a minnow on a hook, if their fins weren't flapping you'd think they were dead. It's been slow in the bay, and out on Andersons Reef and off Mazominee. Setlines and deadsticks arent' getting the hits that active jigging spoons are.

      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 !!
