Thanks for the comment. Went by there today and was wondering about it and what kind of fish were in it. The look of it took me back to the days of fishing the Crosby/Ironton mines. Good times. smile.gif

Lots of smaller to med size small mouths, large mouths, pans and hybrid pans...they bite on worms.. cause its a trout lake , remember no minnows, but you can use salted or canned minnows, leeches or waxies.. I just found out about leeches from the DNR.. i asked..they are live bait so it kind of confuses me... Try the Berkley power bait there.. i have the pink color, haven't tried the orange yet..but they also are biting on worms too.. off the boat landing they are in as well but watch the tree stumps to your right there..

The water level is up.

If you go to the public pier take the stairs down better that way..theres a bbq grill right there by the top of the stairs, you have to look for them..

curfew is 11 pm for trout lakes..

i am sure you know all this..

You can also cast slip bobbers off the pier to get a bit more distance. In summer I set it for about 20 feet deep, but with water temps as they are now it wouldn't have to be fished that deeply.

Just gotta pull it really tight before you clip off the extra.

Wetting before you tighten it helps as well. I've found some brands are prone to loosening up more than others. Most likely due to the thread.

I leave a little "tag" on the ends of a slip bobber knot when clipping, just enough to be able to tighten after it loosens up, but not enough to hamper casting.

So i should cut off the threat i just put on and start over? It might be better..

I slips the tread off the black plastic tube and i pulled as hard as i could, but i did clip it tight to the thread, i didn't know if casing would get tangle .. Will try again..

Thanks for the help...

      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!

      still frozen in?

      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 !!
