Burntside on Sunday

Recommended Posts

Jim Almquist

There was a lot of people who attended the bash but had to leave Sunday. It was too bad because today's fishing for me was the best all weekend. From the time I dropped my jigging rap down and was setting the gain I had one come and grab it but I missed it so I started jigging again and got him to bite and had him on for a little and he was gone. For about a 90 minutes there was constant action with fish on the flasher chasing ,swatting ,bumping and even biting. I only got one but it was still so much fun. I really have to thank Hanson,Dtro and DaChise for letting me, Lisa and Casoloma tag along. The temp were great so you could sit outside and fish with no gloves on and see everybody working the lakers up and down and even a curse word or two when one was lost but it was just a blast. Here is a pic of a nice one that Hanson iced.

DOH!!

I knew I should've come out today. Last year my best fishing was on sunday too. Oh well.

I'm glad to hear that you and Lisa got into some fish today. The chase is almost as fun as catching one of those wiley lakers.

Nice fish Hanson!!

Well, I spent most of the day fishing about half a mile away but within sight of dtro, Hanson, da chise, jmalm, Lisa and Cas (until they left the spot they started the day on) and couldn't get a single fish to go. I saw five fish and they were all suggish.

Really glad you guys had a great Sunday! grin.gifgrin.gif

Here's a shot of a friend who pulled in about 10 a.m. and fished about 30 feet from me most of the rest of the day. He didn't even see a fish. Sigh.

Steve-

That photo ROCKS! (Its a Cat too!)

You definitely have an eye for capturing the moment. I just wish that was me kicked back on my Cat ZR that you photo'd, suitable for framing of course. grin.gif

I get so caught up in photographing the "fish" that I forget about the other important things that tell the story. That photo seams to scream Laker fishing, in a laid back kind of way. ;\)

Yepper, laid back and low tech all the way (except for the Vex). This young Finnlander rarely brings a shelter when he laker fishes and never drills power auger holes. He knows a bunch of spots that produce and when he's tired of one spot he straps his gear to the sled and revs er up and moves.

He also walks alone into the wilderness with nothing but a tow sled in winter and spends days at a time winter camping and fishing.

Nice to see that in the middle of all the techie stuff we love now, the old ways aren't dead.

On a side note, he's always wanted a Polaris (who wouldn't?) but all he could afford at the time was a used Cat. Joke. Sled brands are like on-ice electronics, augers and shelters. You buy what you can and as long as it works well, it's a good tool. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Chris, I watched you guys through my binocs from time to time and could hear you shouting now and then. I was planning to unhook the shelter and zip over on the sled to see how you were doing and take some pics, but every time I thought to do it I was afraid I might actually catch my first fish of the day. Should have driven over and brought a rod to fish with you guys, obviously. grin.gifgrin.gif

Today, which I spent resting after my first good night's sleep in three days, could also have been phenomenal. With the 37-degree temps and barometer plunging in anticipation of the coming storm, they probably were snapping. I've had some excellent laker action in those conditions. But man I was beat after all that buildup and the whole weekend.

      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 !!

      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.
