Island Lake Gold Report 8/4

Recommended Posts

Surface Tension

It wasn't an all out day of fishing. Just a couple hours on the water with Pete and then some relaxation time with friends and family at the cabin.

The report is much the same as my last Island Lake Report

22' of water trolling spinners w/ crawlers. Whats strange to me is to have to 14-15"ers in among the larger eyes, not that I'm complaining.

Island has put out some very quality eyes for me this summer.

This one was quickly photographed and Released, none worse for wear. Note the ragged tail, no doubt shes spawned a few times.

This was a mid day bite, I did get a report of those perfect eaters(15") coming from 5' of water in the evening, again with spinners. Just goes to show theres more then one way to get the Gold from Island.

Its the "in" thing! Krammer has one just like it, so I know its in fashion.

Made from nylon, its a very cool shirt in the hot sun.

2 weekends ago I was wearing it also(very hot out), throw it in the lake and put it back on, instant goose bumps!

      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.
