East Long Lake

Anyone up in this area have any info on this lake? Not sure exactly what road it's off of, but understand it's a fairly small lake with a very small public access that is rutted up most of the time.......maybe 15 miles or so north of Pilager..........

I know this lake and it's stunted with silver dollar size panfish that are just bait robbers. Not trying to discourage you but I have put some time on this lake and never have had any success winter or summer. The water is also stained a bit and the clearity isn't much more than 3-4ft.

The access too is very sketchy because of how to get in there and nobody plows a road. Its more a snowmobile trail in the winter and you'll more likely damage some of the trail just getting in.

good luck

mr

Thanks MR.............what have you fished for on it? Bass, Walleye, Pike?...........Sounds like just another of those many big pond type lakes, sunnies and bullheads?

mainly sunnys or crappies and what you do find is stunted fish. Lakes like these really need a good winter kill. Most lakes do die off with cold and deep snow naturally but you know what the winter trends have been like the past 5-10 years...

You're better off trying your luck at Rock lake close to Pillager for pannies.... wink.gifwink.gif

      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.
