From what I've seen in the woods this last few weeks(with camera in hand) it's going to be a "bumper" year for the ruffies...I stopped counting the grouse drumming...yes...that many...I could stand in one spot and hear drummimg of various birds in different directions.....and even got to know 3 different birds on their same drumming logs for almost 4 weeks now...and...they are "still" drumming...they certainly drum for more then a week for sure,atleast in this area I frequent..here's a couple pics from the last week or so...

Yep, I still heard grouse drumming last week and even the sharptail are still dancing. There are a pair of sharptail that dance on a county road on the way to work. I have to slow down and chase them off the road every morning....

Do you think you can post a picture of the Sharp tails? I honesty do not know if I have ever seen one in the wild. Must be an awesome sight.

I'll try. I was going to snap a photo yesterday but the batteries were dead in my digital camera. My wife drives the same road in the morning on her way to work a little after me, and claims the one sharptail chases her van and tries to run her off the road... shocked.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 !!

      Really small scallops

      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.
