Late March Ice Conditions Bemidji/Cass/Winnie

What is the ice like on these lakes the last week of march during a typical winter? Would going up there the last weekend of march be out of the question this year?

Definatly not out of the question at all. Still plenty of good ice up there. Plus the Jumbos are on the FEED Bag.

That's what I'm hoping for. Hopefully the shoreline ice will still be locked up, don't want to have to use a plank or board to cross open water onto the ice, not willing to go that route.

Yeah I know what you mean.

Hopefully that shore ice will stay intact until then. Ice is around the 30 inch mark in most spots right now. More cold temps ahead it looks like.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?

      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
