    I saw that—seemed kinda “fishy” out of state cousins got 1st & 3rd with Northerns. Won’t change my placement any, I could mark em, just couldn’t get em to bite!

    I’ve heard there were people out on 12 with 6″ of variable ice. I have not been down there for a year or so, can anybody tell me if the Pier is still open?

    I have 2 Contenders that produce well that I planted in 2014. I also planted a Reliance — but the deer rubbed it. Got my trees in Panora @ Steburg’s nursery—This is just a fraction of the peaches we got his year

    First, you have to catch a fish 😛 😛 sounds easy. not so much, last year was irregular, lots of fish & I even caught one, first one in the 4 years I’ve gone. The line moved fast last year even with all the fish caught. We do it for fun, if we catch a fish great, if not, well there’s always next year—all luck there anyway, can you imagine what the fish see & thinks when there is a loud cannon boom & 10,000 lines fall in the water????? Buddy of mine won a 4 wheeler with a perch that weighed around 4oz. 4 years ago & I didn’t even place last year with .86 lbs. We usually go up a few days early & fish before the Extravaganza — I’d describe it kinda like RAGBRAI is to a biker , this is to a Fisherman. I will say though—-I can hardly wait 😀 😀 😀 😀

    Just a bump to give Maxx a hand,
    I’ve only had mine out a few times — my trouble is I’m so used to looking at my Vex–need time in a shack with them side by side

    I did a drive by Tuesday & there were a few shacks out. More towards the middle & appears they started at the boat ramp.

    I can not tell you how much I appreciate this info,
    Saving me a year in trial & error
    Once again THANKS A TON!!!!!!!

    have you had a chance to use these settings

    I used Fish n Guys’ settings Sunday & got along well. I was using the flasher mode & the ice mode. Just had a chance trip for the Lake of the Woods show up if I can swing it, leaving Monday might be able to give it the big test next week.

    How does it compare to a Vexilar. I read you are a vexilar as i am too.

    That is going to take some time to figure out, been a vex guy for 30 years, running a 22 right now but open to the Helix
