Snow storm fishing!

I had the the opportunity to finally do some fishing yesterday. I fished from 11:30 a.m. till about 2 p.m. The snow was coming down pretty good, but the fish were snapping. I ended up catching a couple of dozen bluegills, the majority of which were over 8", and 5 bass. Not bad for a metro day bite. Anyone else make it out in the snow?

I was out on Chisago in the wheeled house from Friday afternoon to Sunday Morning. Snow drifted up wind of the fish house nearly 3'! The bite was off and on, but I managed to catch a few limits of pannies and some decent crappie (all released). ShawnnyB managed a few keeper pannies, 1 bass and a 20" Northern.

Surprisingly, I didn't have any trouble getting off the lake this morning, even going through snow drifts over my bumper. It was a good time sleeping with the wind blowing against the tin house! lol

Got on a great backwater river crappie bite Saturday in spite of the wind and snow. At least it held the competition at bay. We're going to have to make a big trip before the ice goes out. You, me Cyberfish and Casey.

Jack, I heard how you slayed 'em! I would love to get out there and do some backwater stuff. I hear you're heading to URL on friday? On wednesday me and my brother are heading up to where we were in january fishing on the last day, then heading to Big Sandy for thursday. the period just prior to friday's full moon, plus another weather system ought to crank things up for the both of us.

Yeah Jack we ought to get out and do some more fishing before ice out. We recently found out that my wife is pregnant, so this is quite possibly my last opportunity to do unfettered ice fishing for the next decade or two. I’m going down to Iowa this weekend, but after this, I should be free till spring…

Congrats on the good news, Carp. God is good. Any time you guys want a free backwater guide service just let me know. Better hurry though, the ice will go fast.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . 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.
