Planning.....

I am planning a trip up there and I was wondering if I could get some help on a good starting point to fish and good access points. I will be fishing with a portable and would like somewhere I can get to with my pickup.

Thanks

I was kinda wondering about hotels if there are any in the area. I have never been up there and it is about time that I go. It will problably be just my brother in law and me. I would plan to go during the week anyways. I work road construction so I am laid off in the winter so I get a lot of time to fish.

zipple does a great job putting there houses on fish.i used to rent from them all the time till i built my sleeper.now i just keep my house up there.if your buddy's are up there and they do good find out what depth they r at then call zipple and request a house at that depth of water.once in a grea twhile i will fish by a zipple house but not very often.i try to stay away from the crowds and other sleepers.my house is the same color as the zipple houses so i try not to get to close.lol

hunter how much are the shiners and can you usally get them at zipple. do they keep very long and are they smaller then the normal shinners. always hated buying shiners for northers because they usaly die easily. thanks for the info you have been supplying

Packman, iffin Zippel is selling Shiners I would guess they will have local caught Emerald Shiners for you no doubt. Log Cabin Bait is east on #8 about 7 miles and they'll have em. All the bait shops in Baudette will have local caught Emerald Shiners too. I'd say you'd probably wanna have a bag of Emerald Shiners fishing over around Zippel, I would anyhow.

      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!
    • jigginjim
      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 !!
