My best advice for Trout Lake would be to pick an area and look for inside hook type structure. I personally like the area in the bay by the old Ryeberg Barn on the southeast side. I don't get up there nearly as often as I wish I could but always seem to find fish in that area. It's almost impossible to fish the lake without good electronics. I have seen times where a change in 2 feet of depth has resulted in the difference of a limit of eaters versus nothing. The fish in that lake really relate to structure. I like yourself would love to hear more of what the local experienced anglers do to catch walleyes out there. We have caught many big fish...but sometimes struggle to find numerous eaters. I don't get to fish during the prime times as farm work comes first.

Anybody else have any helpful hints????

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      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.

      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?
