Sunday East Bay fishing report

Recommended Posts

Steve Foss

With light west winds and sun, the weather finally gave us a fine autumn day. We were fishing only two spots, each within half a mile of Ely Island.

Four anglers in less than three hours Sunday afternoon caught more than 30 walleyes. All were using bottom bouncers in front of six-foot mono leaders, colored single hooks with a bead in front and baited with jumbo red-tailed chubs hooked through the lips.

Contacted fish in 18 to 42 FOW, with the hottest action coming in about 35-40 feet off an island point with waves breaking across it. There were a few dinks, but almost all of them were 14 to 17.5 inches, with one going 23. Half a dozen of them fell in the 17-26 protected slot.

Almost all the fish were on the muck/soft bottoms before it shallowed and transitioned to rocks. They were snappin', and we didn't have to work very hard at all. Gotta love autumn on V.

P.S. -- Cliff, I think that was you with the big green Lund and the Fishing Minnesota sticker fishing off the entry to Stuntz Bay a bit before noon, right?

Steve,

Yes, that was me.

I got 14 decent walleyes and a couple of big jumbo perch there.

I kept the jumbos and 4 walleyes between 15" and 16".

No slot fish though.

Great day to be out there! laugh.gif

Yeah, the way things are looking could be it was the last really nice day of fall, unless we get a sweet break in late October.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      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!

      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 !!
