This weekend will be my first time ice fishing and I was hoping for some pointers from the more experienced anglers. I'll be heading out to Green Lake with some buddies. Any tips would be greatly appreciated (could range from hot spots, equipment, lures, etc)... Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

If your thinking of hitting green by chisago, I would hit the large shallow bay on the south end of the lake. Please remember that Green by chisago has a 9" slot for crappies.

I second what Deitz said, Glyers Bay I believe is what it is called on the maps. Take an immediate left off the landing and head towards the big group of houses. There you'll find bass, sunfish, crappies, pike and an occassional walleye depending on where you set up. Most of that area is 5-8' of water and the panfish will hit most offerings. Pike, bass and eyes tend to like the shiners under a tipup. Small hooks and jigs with larvae, waxworms or small minnows will take panfish. Goodluck for your first time out that is a lake that you can have a ton of fun on just catching and releasing!

I too will third what deitz has said. I have noticed on green that the size of your jig is not as critical as it can be on other lakes, as long as you have an ice buster bobber you should catch fish. If i were not using a bobber i would go with a smaller jig tipped w/ a waxie.

Also, throw a tip up or two in the water, pretty good chance at a pike or two

I pulled an 8 lb walleye out of the spot to the left 2 years ago, in 6 ft of water on a #12 tear drop tipped with 2 waxies, fishing for pan fish.

I thought it was a 5-6 lb pike on the Vex when it went through the first time, that red line was HUGE, seeing as we were in only 6' of water.

Anyways, you can either fish there, or there's a spot straight out from the landing, about 1/2 way across the lake, where there's another smaller group of houses.

It's in a hole that's 25-30' deep, where alot of people will target crappies. I've caught them both places, but I'll usually target the shallower area, since I usually have my 4 year old with, and it's easier for him to pull up 5' of line and not tangle it, than 30' of line.

i have also had success in the hole straight out from the landing. but if you don't have a graph i wouldn't even bother w/ that spot, the most success i have had there came w/ suspended crappies (little harder to catch without a graph)

      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.
