Atta boy! You maybe could post your pic over in the panfish forum under the weather related post from earlier today.It might give the folks the idea that cold weather conditions are not a lost cause situation, for catching the fish.I usually don't visit here too often,but the reason I was in this forum was I was looking for anything recent on Big Stone Lake.

TOO COLD?!?!? I ended up with 3 eyes and 2 cats just before dark. Catfish are a hoot to catch through the ice, gotta love those whiskers!

These must have come from a SD lake because our limit of crappies in MN is 10. Nice batch of fish. What's the length of the largest crappie?

Perchpounder is the master of pannies down here. He has so many spots people think he is a leopard. Chris, I figured with the cold and the swap meet in SF you would have stayed home this weekend. guess I was wrong. nice catch.

Nice fish Perchpounder!!!

Too cold?? No way. I just got back from URL. It was a bit chilly, but never too cold.

By the way Chris, I have your sign and bait puck. Next time we hook up on the ice I'll return them.

When did the limit drop to 10? jk. Yeah they were caught in IA but the IGL maybe not? those are just the ones I kept we had 43 total the biggest one kept was 13.5. It bit so high in the column it hit the ice when I set the hook. Who said the fish move deeper in the middle of winter? those were caught in less than 6' of water and no live bait was needed. Im not too worried BG I know where it's at I forgot about it until friday when I was getting my stuff ready. It was a little slower today we only ended up with around 30 in about 3 hours I think, but man did they get picky. Sorry no camera today maybe next week.

BG I could have used you there saturday that crappie would have made another nice avatar no? Oh well maybe next time.

Perchpounder, you're a confusing guy. Your location shows SD and MN and you go to IA to catch your fish. Evidentally, you know what you're doing.

Trust me im no master but I can get it done on occaision. the guys I fish with down there will make me look silly about 70% of the time. I really like the new camera I just wish I would have had more gas in my auger so I could have stayed ahead of the fish I could see on it.

      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.
    • CigarGuy
      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.
