Hellwig Creek

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anybody has ever fished Hellwig Creek? I always drive by it on my way up to Vermilion and I read that it has some brookies or browns but was wondering if anybody has fished it.

Hey wally, I would just go out and try fishing some of these small spots. It's hard to get info online because people don't like to post specific locations on small fragile streams that normally don't recieve fishing pressure. So I think your best bet is getting out and finding your own secret spot you don't have to share with anybody.

I probably will just have to go fish it sometime. I just dont want to waste my time fishing in a spot that has no fish you know wink.gif. Maybe on my way up for the walleye opener ill give it a shot.

Hey wally - looks like you have unwittingly stumbled on Quickstrike's secret spot - where he regularly pulls out 16-20 inch trout, with a larger one every trip or two....

Just don't tell anyone!

HAHA, I wish! I haven't fished it or heard anything about it other than, "I heard there's a few trout in there." There's a lot of streams like that up here that you just have to explore and start crossing them off your list if you don't have any success. If you pound them in Hellwig, keep it secret......and send me a e-mail. grin.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
