Six weeks from this coming Saturday, and I'll be back on the Big V!! Really I'm not that excited.

Off to the new Cabelas (it opened last Friday) store in Hazelwood, Mo. after work today to look over some of the "I really need that" items.

The boat needs an after winter clean-up but no biggie there. It's been running on the Mississippi already this year. Had some minor tweaks made to the motor height to stop a splashing issue a few weeks ago. That also gave me a little more top end, and easier steering.

Won't be long now! We'll be on the west end at Life of Riley. 22 foot Crest fishing pontoon, with a 115hp Johnson 4 stroke on the back. If you see us on the water, stop and say hi!

I am assuming you are the one that did battle with the Everett Bay Boat ramp last year and ended up coming over and using our ramp to pull out. Am I correct??

Randy,

That's me! It was a mighty battle. One damaged prop, brand new too. That hurt. I know better now.

Thanks again for your hospitality!

You run a class operation. Tell your wife I said hello.

I'm sure that we'll be down your way on the trip. I have three newbies along, and I'm sure we'll spend some time looking at the lake. We'll probably stop by for gas and to say hi!

MTNet,

We'll be up on June 2 and will be headed back on June 9. Most likely will head your way at some point in time! Let's get together. Cell coverage on the west end is tough for me until I get on the lake.

      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 !!
