How far out? Why sheephead?

Recommended Posts

steeplechaser2

Few quick questions for the AWESOME WASKISH CREW...

1. Next week we are hoping to come up midweek...how far out do we need to go to get tathebiguns? Waldoes and Pikesters?

2. Why do angler catch sheephead during the summer and not in the winter. We've made 6 or 7 trips in Kelly P's houses and never hooked a sheeper.... grin.gif

Thanks for the help!

Seeing as we catch eelpout in the winter but not in the summer maybe the sheepshead morph into eelpout when the waters cold? grin.gif

Do the 'pout enter the triangle and let the sheephead out????? We accidentally donated a rod and reel to the triangle last year...we didn't notice until we got home to put the gear away for the year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

How's the weather been up there? If we make it up next week on Tuesday and Wednesday, could our crew buy a brew for ya at Westwinds?

After reading all the posts here over the past few years, I would guess it has something to do with the seals and the fish they are herding in a particular season. shocked.gif

My theory; Eeelpout prefer cold water with easy chow, well in the summer the cold deeper water is on the other side of the lake, eelpout can go there but we cannot.

Sheephead become very dormant under ice and like to feed on little bugs and mini minnows you find those in the deep water during winter.

So I believe a major migration takes place come fall and spring, sheephead one way and pout the other way.

Well the Waldos own Westwinds normaly you can find them working around the place, do not be fooled by the Marty when looking for the Waldos, looks like he is working around Westwind but really is not.

As for the Pikester, he normally shows up about first ice then migrates back south about late March.

Big eyes are super shallow and big BIG pike are cruising the open water 13-15'

One of these years Pikester is gonna forget about his migration trip south and stay in Waskish.

      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.
