9 posts in this topic

hole pumpin, pumpin da hole....

who pumps the water up in down in the hole with a scooper or other item in order to get the bobber moving up & down? like a lazy slow jigging action?

who knows what I'm talkin bout?

anyone?

I often call it "the Wiskow flush" cause a guy I used to fish with a lot who's last name was Wiskow used to do it prety much all day, he just had to have the water bouncing in all them holes all day.

We call it: "Bibbeling your bobber", and we do it a little differently. We just grab the line and do a bit of a slow, upward jig, then set it back down so the minnow flutters. Some times when you set the bobber on the water she just keeps on a-going.

we actually talked about rigging up a mechanical hole pumper. drill one extra hole in the house & have something like a toilet plunger working up & down like a piston in a cylinder to make for some winter time walleye chop.

I think I saw such a device powered by AA batteries, was used for keeping holes free of ice. It sat on the edge of the hole and pumped water. Might work for what your thinkin'...I've never owned or used one though.

Believe it or not I actually use an auto jigger. I bought it at the sportsmans show a couple years back. It runs off a 12 volt like a locator uses. I love it. It doesn't always work the best though because it usses a magnet system and sometimes my bobber will go down and it will jig at the same time, so I just keep a close eye on it and pull it off when I get a hit. It is quite the conversation piece when theres visitors. It also alows me to hold my beverage while still jigging. Always a plus!! wink.gif

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
