Any noises yet about rebuilding up there? They still have the little Motel which I have stayed at before so I would think they would rebuild the bar?

We were up to Fish Tales on 1/15, their cheap burger night, to check it out & see if some of the regulars from The Hill would show up there. Burgers were OK, we like The Hill's better, & we seen 1 familiar face. Everybody was friendly, so as we had a couple & had our burgers we  got to BS'ing with everybody. Even the bartender agreed that he thought they would rebuild eventually & that Jerry would probably be doing the building as he wouldn't l want anyone else to do it, since that's what he does. We thought It might easily be a year or more though by the time the Fire Marshall is done, the insurance company does their thing, & then the actual construction. That was all Danielle's thing, as that's what she did while Jerry worked construction 16-18 hrs a day. He's done a lot of work around our lake, especially on our(south) end.

Once of the real sad deals when ever there is a fire like this, is all the non-replaceable history hanging on the walls like fish, deer heads, old pictures and funny old signs. :(

We thought it was a fairly new construction(70's) but were told that the original building went back to the 1934

Jerry and Danielle are good friends of mine, I live just up the road from them, I probably helped pour the concrete at Leeches house. Yours the one on Bass? Jerry starts building it will go quick, The Hill after all was the only bar IN the town of Squaw Lake. Very sad seeing things like this happen, Jerry had just completed the last remodel on the place, he is a hard worker.

No, we are the 1 on Sand just north of LL. He built the neighbors just north of us last season. The stop sign on CO RD 35 by the Portage bridge, just a couple places north of that. Jerry did the 1 on Bass just after ours. We demo'ed starting the day after Labor Day 2013 & were unloading the pod back into the new place by late April 2014. We've got to know a lot of nice people at The Hill over the last 3 -4 years. Probably even talked with you. Some of the Tuesday bunch know us as the brothers from Ia.

You could tell by the creaky old wood floors by the bar and the hall to the rest rooms that they had been there a while.

      Trout fishing is easy! Just troll small floating minnow rapalas along the shoreline. Otherwise, yeah, the pits are full of bass!

      What an odd day today. Started out calm and picked up some dinky island lake type  walleyes in front of Barkers Island.     Every single walleye was the same size. All below that 15 inch mark.  Everything came right off the back of the boat with crawler harness and a bottom bouncer.   I don’t really use my planer boards on the river or the bay anymore unless I’m fishing with three people or more and want to spread out rods.  Once your tackle gets more than 10 inches below the water it disappears from sight  and I find planer boards more of a hassle than any other method I fish with   Then the wind really picked up and for some strange reason that seem to shut down the bite.  And I don’t mean shut down, I mean completely shut off. I’m going to head up near the Oliver bridge and Spirit Lake tomorrow and I will post my results here.

      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.
    • MNredneck
      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!
