Getting excited...

I am heading up to fish with a group of four other guys this weekend, 16-18. It will be the first trip up there for me and my buddy. We are staying down at the motel on Wheeler's Point and planning to head out over Pine Island. From what I hear the bite has been pretty good just north of the island. I am wondering if I can get some recomendations for presentation and bait choice. I have a slew of Angel Eyes, pimps, and buckshots as well as plenty fat-boys and genz worms. I also have a few jiggin raps but have never had good luck on them. We are planning to fish two jig lines in the house and have some tip-ups set up outside to serve as our deadstick lines.

Should we go with shiners, chubs, fattys, or most likely the combo? Also, has anyone tried using larve or waxies for eyes, as I have caught them on those? Do the perch up there have a preference?

We are also going up this weekend and can't wait for thursday to get here. There is seven of us going. We are staying at Adrians. Sounds like the fishing is going to be good anywhere you go.

We had excellent fishing out past Pine fish were real finiky had to use a certain technique to get them to bite all in all we iced around 75 to 80 fish. Lots of fun and only could get them on certain lures fish were aggresive but real hard to get then to bite.

Can't wait till the 24th

Well if you see us out there stop by and say hello. We will be fishing in a Trap Guide with a Black F-150 pretty near-by. My name is Tom. Maybe we can share some hot-spots or tips. Well, hopefully we will be able to share some hot-spots.

Hi Crop,

Care to share the technique? I am taking my 7 y.o daughter and 10 y.o. son this weekend. We will be in a River Bend sleeper and they are out past Pine Island. I had the 7 y.o. there 3 weeks ago and we caught all our fish on a plain red hook. They wanted nothing to do with any kind of jig that weekend. They would spook as soon as the jig was moved.

Thanks,

Pops

I will be in an Eskimo III and the other to I believe are Otters. We are riding our sleds out right from the cabin. I will look for you stop and say hi if I see you. Hopefully everywhere we go will be a hotspot. We are going out to Garden Island Firday morning for the day. Will be back in after the night bite.

      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 !!
