Poupy,

Where are you staying at when you get to LOW? I'm also heading up there that day.

most resort have started to let people drive out. There are some cracks that have caused some problems. With this weather the lake can change by the day so your best bet is to call before you go to check the current conditions. The ice is about 16 inches out in front of West Wind.

The kids and I will be up on the afternoon of the 25th. I was wondering if the cracks are too bad to drive on the lake? I have an F-150 with a 12' sleeper house. Does anyone think it will be too risky? I'll have the kids with me that is why I just want to make sure. If that is the case we won't go. We were planning to go out of either hillmans or WW.

thanks!

West Wind put a steel bridge over the largest crack today, so it should'nt be a problem.

Thanks for the info, CS. I really appreciate it. If you are out tomorrow or sunday, look for a blue '93 pickup and an old winnebago pull behind and we should have a cold one for ya! hehe we'll have hot chocolate too..might be more appropriate with the weather!!

Hey rafter we are staying at Schusters my guess is you are going with our group, because most of the big drinkers are from Bricelyn. Doug and are planning on leaving early Monday and hitting URL on the way up.

Labby,

The bite is pretty spotty right now with the majority of the fish hitting during the day,but there is a decent evening bite if you locate fish. Pike on the other hand are going strong, We had a guy today who stayed in one of our sleepers who pulled a 43 1/4" pike through the hole, with a few other nice ones in the 38" range.

      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 !!
