Hey folks, I'm hoping you can help me be a good wife! My hubby's headed up to our new cabin on Jessie Lake this weekend, and I'd like to be able to give him a fishing report, since he's going out on the lake for the first time ever. Any hints, tips, traps, words of wisdom, or just general reporting on the Jessie Lake fishing would be great. Thanks!

JLF,which place did you buy? I am sure that you will like the lake and the whole area.

The fishing has been kinda tough the first few weeks,but has picked up the last few days.Some nice eyes over 20" have been c&r and some limits of good eater size have been caught.Jig and minnows still are the best,but leeches are working now that the water temps are finally above 60.

Watch out for deadhead logs that are barely above the water(some are just below)! Most of them are on the south end by the public acess to pooles creek and some on our side to the south. We had a couple of guests find them with there motors. If you stay in the middle you should be ok.

.

Lisa,who are your friends that have the 5th wheel?

Tim O....

I'm seeing deadheads in places that I've never seen them before. shocked

Glad to hear the water temps are finally getting up there, how is the water clarity looking, man was she stirred up over the Memorial weekend. Looks like you have quite the number of RV's this year at the resort, are those your "resort boats" that keep following me around everywhere?? lol wink

Hey Glenn,

I've got a buddy that has a cabin by the Spring Lake Store as well. We are thinking of heading up on the 12th to do some fishing in the area. He's fished around there before but I'm a rookie so it should be interesting fishing "virgin" waters.

Buddies cabin/shack isn't on a lake just a small little place(deer hunting shack that doubles as a fishing shack) just West of the Spring Lake Store a mile or so. We're up in the air yet as to where we may go. I'm very interested to fish some new water up in that area.

Hey everyone,

We're located on the northwestern side (I think) of Jessie - across from what looks like park forest. We're loving it there. We used to be on Deer (a phenomenal lake), but family squabbles ended that. And my Brother in law is on little Jessie. We're going to really go fishing this weekend - trying to get my son his first fish ever (he's 2 and 1/2). And catch a few biggies for us! We're primarily bass / muskie / northern fisherpeople, so we'll see if we can find them!

Thanks for all the posts and the welcoming messages - any updates - still appreciated. Take care!

jlf, that would put your place off of cty rd 135 correct? how far are you from an old resort-supper club that use to be named birchwood resort? last summer when i traveled that road there was a lot of activity on a place that was in an open area with a trialer house on it and i think there was some road/driveway work done.

Hi Glenn, Hmmmm... I'm not really sure! We're off of 135, but I don't know about the old resort-supper club. We have some exploring to do! This will be my 4th time up and hubby's 7th, so maybe we'll get some good exploring in this weekend!

About 4 and 1/2 hours - but we're used to it and it's worth it. I drive 100 miles a day for work! I'll have to check out the resort - and the spring lake store (is that the same as the bowstring store?). So far, we're loving it!

That's awesome that you have the family going on to keep up the cabin. That's what we did on Deer, but when a death happened, it all changed.

Can't wait to catch some fish this weekend and enjoy the lake. It's going to be Good Times!

      Sorry - Not close to it right now.  Everything is factory default at this point except some color selection, depth highlights, low battery alarm and SI distance to 70 ft.  I was wondering if I should change the transducer setting or kHz setting but that does not seem right.
    • rundrave
      can you provide some screen shots or more info of your menu options and how you have everything set up at the time you took that pic?

      Fished Huntington lake on Memorial weekend.  Within the first 20 minutes my buddy pulled in a monster largemouth, but pretty slow the rest of the day.  Picked up a few smaller bass.  Saw a Northern just chilling by the surface, looked to be around the 30" mark but couldn't get him to bite.     Didn't get a chance to fish the other lakes in the area.  Beautiful lakes to be on, though.  Water clarity is unreal, we were watching the loons chasing fish underwater.

      LoonASea - Thanks, I have been looking at the tutorials but I can't figure this out.  I also spent 1.5 hours on hold yesterday with HB without ever getting through.   I did speak with HB tech support awhile ago and their advice was to go back to default setting which it did.

      I am going to cuyuna in a coule weeks and I am planning do do a little bit of fishing but am not much of a trout fisherman. Do the northerns and bass in the mine lakes have any size to them?
    • LoonASea
      Lots of good tutorals  on YouTube ,,, Or call Humminbird tech support

      To the other Helix users.  I have a Helix 7 Chirp SI GPS G2 that I am having down imaging issues with.  I am sure it is a user error.  I have a lot of clutter on the screen.  Basically a horizontal line of clutter at every foot and the detail level is terrible.  I understand it is not a Mega unit but this lack of detail and clutter is not helpful at all.  I am on the newest software (2.000) and was having the same problem before updating the software.  I can switch to a regular sonar view and see fish and switch back to DI and do not see anything.  The only way to get that horizontal clutter to disappear is to take the sensitivity down to 1 or 2 and then I can't see anything anyway.  It is not networked, nothing else in use and transducer is off the back of the boat.   Do I need to make some other adjustment or selections besides sensitivity, contrast, etc.?  I have tried just about everything but am not having a great deal of luck and have gone back to default setting.  Pics attached from last weekend from a very clear lake with about 6 feet of clear visibility.   Thank you for the help!

      Me too. Just got up here and want to go out fishing!
