Recommended Posts

What's the status on top of the ice for Friday/Saturday? Enuff snow for a snowmobile or not?

Thanks for any tips.

We ran our sleds last weekend out of wheeleers point. Stayed on the trail as much as we could. We did run up to Oak Island sat afternoon to get get our speed fix. Put on 110 miles on the trail, about 1/4 mile off the trail. Very rough and hard off the trail.

I would guess with the warm weather it's all but over for this year.

Some of the best sled riding of the year is after the snow is all gone, the ice is a little softened up, the standing water is gone. There is still a couple of good weeks of ice riding left unless the weather gets crazy warm.

What I wonder is how you guys on wheelers jump those 20 foot open cracks this time of year?

Lots of sleds running out on the Black Trail Thursday and Friday. ONce you get out to 8-9 mile there is more snow than the area of Pine. It was 51 degrees on Friday and the snow was starting to get pretty tacky, but looked like the guys were having a good ride. At least there were several that went by that were leaving a large contrail LOL. Bill

Wide open. Fun.

      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 !!
