Place to put a perm out this winter?

Recommended Posts

smallieobsession

Hi All, I'm thinking of building a basic permanent shack in the weeks ahead and am looking for thoughts/ideas on what might be a good spot to put it that is not too far from Pine Island (other than the Zumbro). I'm thinking that I will use it maybe some weekday morns before work and after work as well as some weekends. Overall I just need to be able to get there in less than say 45 minutes. Faribault lakes seem a little far, same with Mankato so that leaves maybe the river? Anybody have any thoughts on Baypoint in Red Wing as a spot for a perm? Any other ideas within 50 miles of Pine Island (again, other than Zumbro)???

Appreciate any feedback.

Distance is a relative term. If you are willing to drive a little I would put it on the Frontenac Pond. Its less than 10 min north of Lake City. There are a lot of people that put it permenant shacks out there.

Thanks for the reply....yeah, that's an idea. What's the typical catch down there...Gills and Gators I beleive, is that correct? Any other spots around Lake City where perms get put out on a regular basis?

yeah mostly gills and gators...You could put it out on the river near the point or down by 1st or 2nd creek.

Your chances of having consistent luck anywhere on the river is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Hey Steve... Did you get the email I sent you the other day? Let me know, I've been wanting to touch base with you.

Thanks,

      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!

      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 !!
