Sugar Lake Ice?

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Wondering if the ice is drivable? With this cold spell I'd imagine I could go all over this weekend. It'll be cold, but looking to set up some tip ups for northerns.

I was out on the north end about 2 weeks ago and there was 14 inches where I was at, (I managed to get 1 eye about 21'')

P.S. Remember that Sugar has a slot limit on the pike.

I plan on accessing at the north launch and fishing right outside the bay. I remember a sign at the launch encouraging people to keep their limit of small pike...what is the slot? I guess it doesn't really matter, I don't intend to keep anything.

24"-36" must be released immediately-- Crappie limit is only 5.

I heard someone went through about....couple weeks ago now, on the North end. Anyone else know about that? I love that lake for first ice, and got a few new spots in mind. Wondering. Thanks!

I went out today from noon til 5. I probably should've stayed longer but 5 hours with only a few perch nibbling at my minnows is long enough. I noticed a lot of people driving on about 4pm. Tried a few different spots and depths ranging from 7-30 feet. Ice ranged from about a foot to 17 inches depending on where I was. No northerns or walleyes. Didn't even see a sunfish or a crappie. So I go to leave up the access near 24 and it's solid ice. I made it about 10 feet before I decided to drive to the access on 7. That's a long trip. Made it up that one just fine.

      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 !!

      Really small scallops

      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.
