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?

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 may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
