The grass is always greener...:) I live 7 miles up the shore from Duluth and want to come over to your area to explore the muskie fishing this summer!! Sorry, can't help much as I really don't fish lakers much and just dabble on the big lake. The only bay north of Duluth I can think of would be in 2 Harbors but that really isn't big enuf to do any serious laker fishing, although they do fairly well off the breakwall there.

The laker fishing around Two Harbors is good. If no boat, lots cast off the breakwall in Agate Bay. If a small boat, you need a fairly calm day, but deep water comes in close to shore (a long cast from the breakwall, for example, hits 80 FOW). There are a series of humps in much deeper water not even a mile offshore, and many people troll up and down the shore by putting in at the Agate Bay public landing.

Because a person doesn't have to go miles offshore to find deep laker water, it's a good place for smaller boats, always emphasizing that you need a calm or pretty calm day. And pay close attention to wind and wave, because they can change quickly on the Big Lake. The reason TH is popular with small boats is they can expect fish fairly close to shore and haul a$$ in a hurry with only a short ride in if it gets too rough.

In August you can put in at the Mcquade landing and be close to Laker water. Depending on water temps will determine how deep but so it'll be anywhere from 120-200". This will be downrigger fishing the bottom with dodger/fly w/smelt.

      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.
