Michell Report

Recommended Posts

Shack

Lake michell today was about 24 inches thick of ice. I was

in about 28 feet of water and found school's of crappies

and sun fish 1-4 feet off of bottom. Using video camera.

though fish were small, clouds of them. south east access

good for cars and trucks. You can drive anywere, but not

by channel. Around 4:30 p.m. all sun fish and crappies

cleared out and i found a large norther pike eye balling

my cam. Shortly after sunset, larger crappies coming

through around 2-4 feet off the bottom (25-23 feet).

I had the kids with, so I left around 7:00 p.m. Fish

were coming through on finder ever 3-5 minutes as we

were leaving. Went to old Milc on Sat. Started in cove and

ended up in Sunset. Only one eal puoght. Hope I spelled

correctly. Good luke out fishing.

allways rember,

Well hit Michell Around 7:00 p.m.. Some people leaving and

some just getting their. Reopened holes from yeterday ( I know this dulls the blades) set up shack and was fishing

by 7:10. from then till about 8:30 alot (6) of smaller

crappies. The brother in law showed up around then and

things died down till about 9:30 and we got three more

(biggest of the night). Stayed till about 11:00 and went home. Did catch later fish about 10' under ice in 28' of water. Useing micro rigs and smallest minnows. No bobber

work well when i fisrt got their. Going to independance

or milacs in a.m., will report on correct region after

we get back. I rate michell/big lake a steady 6-7 on a

scale from 1-10 for crappies.

Have fun,

frown.gifWent out to Mitchell tonight. It was a death march getting out their. DEEP SNOW! Drove out of access a little ways and turned around. Went to north side, dropped shack off at shore and parked up by condo's. Walked our azzes off until we dropped in at 17'. Had some action on graff at bottom, but no fish to be had.

Brother in-law did catch bull head. Had some bits and called it quits around 10:45 p.m.. This will be my last post of this ice fishing year from Mitchell. Look at pics and see how slush is. Lotsoffish was right! Never mind the weird bobber in first hole. Something I tried right before we left. Will report next year. Note the five inches of slush you have to walk through.

      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.
