In the vicinity of Fire Island/Goodwill Island there is a point of land on the mainland shore with a curious 'shack' nestled just out of sight in the trees, and an old-timey aluminum boat pulled ashore nearby (sometimes two old-timey aluminum boats). Over the past several years I've very occassionally seen smoke from a campfire and maybe once or twice maybe heard a whisper quiet generator.

Seems like a very private person spends a lot of time there. Not to invade any privacy, but is there a tale to tell here?

I have seen the "hermit" for years when my father and I come to vermilion.I dont know any thing about him, but that he is an older gentleman that will wave and say hi every time we go trolling buy. He will always tell you if and where the fish are bitting

This is a very interesting post cuz' I know exactly where you are talking about. My wife and I talk of this guy often because she thinks if I had it my way that is exactly how I would live. I saw him drag an old,old, outboard down to one of the boats a couple years ago and pull on that thing for 30 minutes straight and then drag it back up after it wouldn't start. I love the mystique of the northwoods. Hans how has the fishing been for you this year?

It's been pretty good. Rather than fish all my old "honey holes" I've been trying to develop new places, so my catch is probably down from traditional average, but I've been finding a respectable amount of fish in "new" spots. About half have been up in the slot.

My impression is that the west end fish seem skinny (smaller girth) compared to what I'm used to seeing in the past. Anyone else notice that, especially in the 19-25" fish???

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      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.
