The regs state that you can only fish with one hook per line with the exception of lures with multiple hooks. How does this apply to a crawler harness? The spinner type with two single hooks. Do these count as 2 hooks or 1 lure? Thanks.

Check the Mille Lacs forum a while ago. There is discussion on it. In short, they are legit.

They call spinners, lures so you are ok. If you don't have the spinner on and have two hooks then you are useing two hooks and it's not ok. Thats the way I have always under stood it.

I just read the Mille Lacs forum and had another question. Does anyone know if you can use a treble hook will bobber fishing for northerns with smelt or sucker minnows as long as you have a spinner blade above the hook?

I was once told that as long as you have some short of spinner blade near the treble hook it is considered a lure and is then legal.

Yup. A small spinner blade will make it legal. Check out the set ups like quick strikes in the stores and you will see what it looks like.

Correct, add a small spinner blade and it to make it a lure and Legal.

That "Lure" regulation came about 15 years ago or so.

I don't know what purpose or intent for the change. I was informed of the law by a CO while fishing for Lake Trout through the ice the year of the change. Typically you'd use a smelt hook or treble with a smelt or ciscoe. For a few years we went to a single long shanked hook with a gap of around 1" or simple cut one hook off a smelt hook. To get back to using the double or treble hooks legally, it was recommended by another CO to make it a "lure" by adding a spinner blade.

This wasn't a loop hole I dreamed up to skirt the reg, it came from a CO so I was a bit more comfortable with using the "lure". Ten years have passed since then and I haven't been asked to see my "lure" for a CO.

Does anybody know about adding a stinger hook to a plain jig? Or is the jig considered a 'lure'?

The quick strike rigs I have purchased have only one spinner blade above one of the trebles. Am I only half legal when using these?

      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 !!

      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.
