5 posts in this topic

wow what a weekend i went out on stella on sunday night around 7ish or so and that was a big mistake. the waterskiers and all the big boats were out there and i swear they were trying to see how close they could get to you. after almost getting hit 4 times out there i said screw it and left but it wasnt much fun

They weren't any better on Belle either. After lunchtime someone left the gates open and they all came out. Felt like I was getting attacked by mosquitoes with all the buzzing going around. Hard to not expect that on a lake like Belle though on a sunny day.

Was out at Belle for the weekend too. Saw all the boat traffic yesterday and decided to stay ashore.

if they get too close call the sherrif or CO. No need for that $@!* on the lakes. Most probably had some beer on board and in their system, which under state law would be a dwi. Dont get me wrong, I too like to have fun on the lake whether it be fishing or waterskiing or jet skiing, but there are limits and laws to follow. Upsetting fisherman seems to be a way of getting these people off. If it ever got bad to where i thought i would get hit, I would put on the old 6 oz sinker and start casting at them when they come by. It would only take one thump for them to drive somewhere else.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
