Well just checked NOAA.Org and the weather there says slight chance of raind Fri Sat and Sun. Suppose that means we are gonna get nice and damp, probably see some snow, and at least a 40mph wind.

Just what the DR ordered.

Have no fear, my Brothers. My sources tell me that we will have good weather for the opener and not much for wind. Most of the TV news and internet sites are saying the same thing.

Some are saying poor weather with wind and rain. So do we go with the majority or stick with the negative people?

Yeah -- hope for the best but assume for gale-force wind and periods of snow crazy.gifcrazy.gifwink.gif

It doens't seem to me that I have ever had a nice opener, well not in the last 4 or so years, I think thats just what it's like all the time, usually the next day is nice, kinda like the crappy weather is tradition.. Oh well fishing is fishing.

I prefer the crappy weather on opener it protects the resource as the 612ers do not fish as much and then I go during the week and have the lake practically to myself.

Dear Lord let it be cold, rainy and windy all weekend. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      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 !!

      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.
