checking to see if anyone may have found a otter sled fish house combo, my son was fishing Grindstone lake today heading to Pine City and lost it off the back of his trailer. his name is Derek and can be reached at 218-393-1486, thanks if anyone has found it
First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw. Some options are fishing on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.
Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water. Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
I broke a bunch also at first my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.
