i would drill alot of holes and use a flasher if the weather is nice. waiting them out works good to but sometimes u gotta go searching...i never get the chance cause when i go it's 50 below lol.

the best color i caught my crappies on and seen alot of other people catch theirs on is glow red...other colors work to but it's the most consistant i've seen.

fatheads and emerald shiners is what i like to use for the big crappies.

good luck

glow red demon jig ,bigger size, is a good start. never hurts to have some kind of glow blue jig either. as far as bait goes you might want to bring a little of everything[crappie minnows,chubs,shiners] cause you never know what they want to eat. nowadays i think its more of a matter of finding em.

The crappies usually will bite very weel on the JB Lures Rattlin Varmits in glow red in the 1/8th oz or the 1/4 oz also.

One can use many different baits and I usually use a minnow head on the jig and then also use a deadstick in the next hole with a plain red hook and a lively whole minnow. This minnow could be one of many sizes but usually I will use a crappie or fathead sized minnow.

I stockpile everything the beginning of ice/ and open water between JB, as well as Northland directly from their websites. It kills me to go to an outlet an have them out so I end it all before seaosons begin! http://www.jblures.com

      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 !!
