I was talking to one of our local CO's tonight and he said he heard of a big laker or splake coming out of Big Trout. I thought the DNR was quitting stocking trout in this lake and it was turning more into a walleye/bass/northern lake? So who caught it and how big was it? I've tried downrigging out there a time or two, but caught more suspended smallies than trout. May have to try it yet this winter.

Brian,

A buddy of mine iced a 16 out of there 2 years ago to and usually average 1 fish per trip. This lake has alot of structure. They have stopped stocking only because there is a strong number of trout in there.

That is where most people access from, its not much of an access and hopefully you can park on the ice. parking is limited to the road.

There's an access on the north side of the lake by the bible camp. I'm not sure if it's public or private but that's the one everyone uses and I've never heard anyone complain about it. I've never had luck on Bluewater w/ laker's. I know they do get some nice one's out of there though and I've heard rumor of a couple monsters in there. I usually go to Caribou, but have never caught anything over 3-4lbs there. I need to invest in a snowmobile or atv to open up my horizons. LOL

Dustin,

Nice to see you on the forums, I thought you went into hibernation after duck season! LOL

No hibernation for me Brain, have been doing plenty of fishing. I've come frequently, mostly just lurk though.

      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 !!

      Really small scallops

      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.
