It was a sunny and beautiful day, and we found some big trout! I used my Humminbird Helix to get us in the zone; using the autochart live feature during open water, I mapped out a section of this lake in the boat, creating an accurate depth map. I then set that Helix unit up in a portable ice fishing pack, set it on my lap, turned the maps on, and drove to the exact spot I wanted. I found the edge of a reef, and stopped right on the contour I wanted. Then the Helix unit doubles as my flasher, and is highly effective for targeting lake trout.
We got into some great fish, and by length/girth calculations, they ranged from 7 to 18 lbs, great day!!
