Couldn't buy a fish!

I fished all day Friday and didn't get a bite! I think this is the first time ever to get skunked on LOW. I guess that is why they call it fishing! I downrigged out of Long Point and Rocky Point for six hours at depths from 30-36 feet with SR-5 shad raps...no takers? Then I drifted over 12 mile reef with a spinner and crawler for two hours...nothing! It wasn't in the cards for me and my 14 year old daughter that I dragged out of bed at 6:00am wasn't impressed either! Where are the hot spot areas for downrigging right now?

Hi, There were 6 of us out of Adrians from the 19th to the 23rd. Fished out by the Charter boats dragging leeches crawlers and minnows with few bites. I didn't see any quality fish at all. The fish that were caught were 13" to 16" at best. We did catch 4 Sturgeon in the river largest was 50 1/2" next was a 371/2 caught on a walleye rod, that was alot of fun. But basically they Walleye had heat stroke and lock jaw. Good Fishin'

You should try some of the smaller reefs such as Pedros, the humps north of 12, Lemms, ect. I tried Arnesens reef the other day and it was a whole lot of boats and a whole lot of baby fish. Downrigging try starting halfway between Arnesens and 12 and fish your way north a few miles or vice versa. Way way out infront of LP would be worth a try, east of 16 is always good. I hear its hot at Stoney or was. Try setting your ball high like 20 feet down or so. Goodluck

      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.

      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 !!
