Mike,

I went fishing for 2 days out on Birch about two weeks ago. I set up in an area that I have always done real well on day biting walleyes during mid winter. I caught 1 walleye in two days! Really weird because historically, it had always been a good producer. Not even any pesky perch around which was really weird. Good Luck out there.

I tend to fish some of the deeper channels out there that are over 20 FOW. Like I said, though, it didn't work too good for me the last time I was out there. You can find Walleyes that bite all day long out there, but you need to track them down. Bare hook and a fat head or a small glow jig works well and so does gold or yellow jigging spoons tipped with a chunk of minnow. Let me know how you did out there.

Well, keep trying and that's all you can do. Things should pick up out there for ya. I was in the same boat as you here about 2 weeks ago. I think the last time I went out there, I got totally skunked-not even a perch and the time before that, I caught one Walleye and one perch all day. I think it helps if the sun is really bright with that dark water. Seems like my better days out there come when there is steady high pressure and bright sun. Keep me posted!

      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 !!
