Tiny little dusting in Avoca.

HOWEVER, this weather is a total drag. I really want to get my boat in the water and hit the early season crappies on Shetek and bloody. Huge whitecaps and brrrr cold arn't my idea of fun on the lake.

I know what you mean Eric. I have been trying to get on the Minnesota and Mississippi for some eye and channel cat action and its to cold to enjoy it. I would assume the cold weather has dropped the water temps and the eye fishing has slowed. frown.gif

I have also been thinking of Washington for some slab crappies but the weather isnt helping there either.

The next run might be the Sturgeon event if the cold and ice leaves that area.

At least we have no snow in Arlington. smile.gif

With these northwest winds you couldn't have found a better spot to get some ice shots. Great pics.

My neighbor and I are fishing the Border water challenge on Big Stone the end of the month. I hope mother nature gets it all out of her system now so it's at least half way decent.

      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!

      still frozen in?

      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 !!
