4 wheeler travel is safe. Fishing has been on the slow side though.

We've been fishing in the middle the past week and it's been slow. Have heard it's been better over by the 'other' campground.

Been getting a few keeper crappies and small northerns in the middle by the hump. There's still two houses in the area, but ours is coming off this week.

It belongs to a friend of mine. He's leaving for Florida next Tuesday for two weeks, so it's coming off by this weekend. I've got my portable in the truck so my season goes as long as you can drive out.

Took a look last Sunday, was still frozen up to shore. Still walkable, probably 4-wheelerable. I can stop by there this afternoon and post an update.

Stopped by Thursday afternoon. Ice is still very walkable. It's still up to shore at the launch. Color is white to light gray, no real dark spots.

Hi, we're looking at spending some time on Oak Lake - does anyone have any advice as to the quality of the water, fishing production and any other information you care to share? Any information you can provide would be most appreciated!

      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?
    • CigarGuy
      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 !!

      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.
