The ice fishing season!!!!!

Sounds to me like you're conceding the walleye contest, which is no wonder, since you are a beaten man grin.gifgrin.gif

But yep, I'm anxious to get on the ice, and try for those rough fish some call trout! tongue.gif

Have you been doing any good lately??? Last time I saw you was in the bait shop when you stopped in wanting to have your picture taken with me, and have me autograph it. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Ha Ha Ha!!!

Yeah, I guess I will have to hand you the title for summer walleye... crazy.gif In all honesty, I haven't really fished much at all this summer. It has been crazy busy for me. Anyways, I am going to get some big walleyes once the ice starts forming! grin.gif I am usually good for at least one trophy size fish during ice season. You are going to have your work cut out for yourself once trout season gets going though. I will have nothing else to do from Jan 15- March 15 but chase trout. Can't wait man, can't wait!

Oh, by the way, I heard you were smack-talking the "Fish Master" when my uncle stopped by for bait awhile back. I told him to start going to Skubes! tongue.gif

Later,

Justin

Your uncle and I were in total agreement when we discussed you and your extraordinarily poor fishing skills. I have a friend for life. smile.gif

I happen to know stfcatfish's ancestors once lived in Ely back in the Stone Age. At that time the town was know as Elystone. Heres a picture of Fred Foss on his way to work at Miner's Pit.

After hitting a vain of water one day at work, the pit filled, putting the entire town out of work and the residents of Elystone dispersed throughout the country. Fred landed in Hollywood and by luck became a movie star with his own show called the Flintstones. While on the set at Warner Bros studio he meet and befriended a cWazY wAbBiTt. Thats leads to another story, some of you know it.

A little birdie once told me that there are really only about a dozen true Elyites in existence. Everyone else is just visiting! laugh.gif

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
