Current ice situation?

Recommended Posts

anchor man

I hoping to put our dock in on Little Pine and the in-law's dock on Lower WF asap. Anyone know what the current ice situation is up there? Are we thinking 2-3 more weeks??

Thanks

I think that 2-3 weeks is reality now. I think it will be an average ice out or later. I would plan on late April.

I was up at my in-laws cabin this past weekend near Pequot and could't believe all the snow and ice. I hadn't been up since X-mas and I think there is more snow up there in April than there was in Dec. I was up there cleaning out woodduck boxes and worried I may be too late, but everything was still locked up in terms of lakes. The past three or four years I usually had a bird or two in the boxes up there at this time already , but not this year yet. Maybe a later walleye spawn this yr. in comparison to the past couple of yrs.....or maybe this is finally a normal yr. I think we have been getting spoiled the past 10 yrs. in terms of Spring.

It seems like one step forward and two steps back around here lately. I look out my office window and the bluebird box that already had occupants two weeks ago is empty since the grassy field around it is half covered w/ snow. Today's forcast for snow is under the two steps back part, too. Although, I'll take it since the moisture is very needed around here. I think all it will take is next weeks guess at mid 50's or better to return us to "normal" and to start opening up all my crappie hotspots for action... It makes it easier to turkey hunt next week knowing I'm not missing all the 12" crappies too.

With the cold snap lately I thought I might see some fearless/foolish fisherman out again and last night I saw two people out fishing in the middle of Round and this AM one guy with a portable out on West Twin. I really want to fish but I will be waiting for the soft water. Hoping it will warm up and open up soon.

      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.
