Make sure you get a H7 G2 (Gen 2) with CHIRP and run the 1521 ducer. I've ran Gen1 units before and they can work well but much more involved and finicky overall, especially when it comes to IR settings. The CHIRP clarity is fantastic. Converted the H7 G2N off my bow to an ice rig with a Genz pack and a ram mount to basically use as a backup to my FL-20. Used it once and the FL-20 is now my backup unit.

Happened to me on lake Minnetonka a few years back. I didn't say anything because it was so unbelievable, but the tooth marks on my FL-8 ducer did not lie! Like others have said, I think the big girls roam up near the ice picking off dead fish this time of year.

If you can get your hands on some small creek chubs they are dynamite.

I just replaced my Cabela's brand AGM batteries for my trolling motor. They were 13 years old and still actually worked quite well, I could just tell that they were starting to lose some power. I bought two of the same to replace the old ones, and they are actually on sale at the moment.

I wired it into an accessory port in my main fuse box. It is controlled by the master power and accessory switches on the dash.

I just installed a new terrova ipilot with link, and the included heading sensor is essentially a bluetooth enabled compass. From my research it didn't really matter where it is mounted so long as the arrow on the front pointed in line with the keel and it had a clear line of communication with the powehead, i.e. no ferrous metals around it or in between in and the powerhead.

I follow these forums to a certain degree and find that most of the disagreement centers on aspects that are largely out of the average sportsman's control, i.e. how are fisheries surveys and population estimates conducted, treaty agreements, management decisions, etc. Most of these discussions devolve into blue sky philosophical discussions about civil rights that have no discernible plans of action beyond petitions, etc. In my mind, I think more about what could realistically be done.

As FishaBass noted: On the plus side.... If the Zebra clams keep the water more clear..... Fish can spawn in deeper water.... Makes netting a little more difficult....

Right away I wonder how the DNR currently conducts their surveys. Do they place nets in shallower areas that are not as utilized in light of the changing dynamics of the system? If so, that could lead to a dramatic underestimate of the population. Just a thought. Perhaps with new tech and the web there could be a better developed electronic reporting system in place of the standard catch rate surveys?

The other thing I wonder is whether there could be a volunteer effort (similar to that used for invasive monitoring) that could be used to help monitor the amount of fish taken during netting. It would have to be a non-confrontational/non-political effort to simply document harvest. I often hear that there is no one at the launches counting fish. Perhaps a seasonal volunteer force could help with this?

Maybe these ideas are pie-in-the-sky, but it would be nice to see some discussions and ideas about real-world, actionable solutions to help the current situation.

Anyway, just my

Found about 6" of good clear ice yesterday with about 2-3" of lower quality snow melt ice in top of it. Sunset bite was fast and furious in 15fow just outside the weeds. Bobber rod with minnow caught the biggest but the jigging stick with a glow VMC rattle spoon brought home the numbers.

Supply is driven by demand. Media is far from the only profession where immoral actions are driven by a demand for the resulting product. The only way this changes is if the consumer decides to tune out and quit clicking. Unlikely.
