Victim to the ice hole!

37 posts in this topic

I'm sad to admit I have lost my phone to good old duck lake, crappies biting and I suppose it does not help when I left my phone on my lap. Anyone else lose anything yet? I'm sure this list will grow always does

With Alltel, go on Ebay and buy replacements. I just did it for my daughter and got a new Kyocera slider for $ 50.00

Beats the deductible.....

I used to have a rule in my fish house, no phones allowed. That bit me in the butt one time though when I ran out of the frosty beverages on Frances on the West end. Long walk back to the truck to call the wife to do a resupply mission of Schmidt's to the shanty!

I don't know about loosing phones down the hole, although I have came close. I usually just end up with a wet glove from losing a big one at the top of the hole.

Ive never lost my phone down the hole, but last year i lost my radio down the ice hole on washington. It was sitting on top of the bait bucket, and I bumped it with my elbow and it went down the hole, my buddy just stared down the hole and watched it go. Maybe it is still playing music down there for the fish to listen to. wink.gif

Another time last year we were tip up fishing on lake marion in lakeville, we were ready to pack up and my brother was kicking his nice 5# northern back to the sled to take it home and just as he was about to kick it once more my cousin said "watch out for that..." and just as he was about to say 'hole' down went the northern. It was just caught 5 min before that so the fish still lived but my brother was not happy about it. grin.gif

I just love this post.

So, what else have people lost down the hole? I think I'm good for at least 1 ice scoop, a forceps or jaw spreader, a handful of jigs and a rod holder every season. grin.gif

My ex, threw my ice chisel down the ice hole, I then used a friends, I threw his down the hole, so then I went to a shack next to me, and explained what happend, and told him I promise I would tie the rope on me so it doesnt end up down the hole. So I got the holes cleaned up, I went to grab the chisel, knocked it down the hole. Went to the neighber to tell him about it, he laughed so hard, I gave him $20. That was 3 chisels in less then an hour frown.gif.

A couple years ago, the day after christmas, me and my son went out fishing. He brought his brand new gameboy with him. He was playing it, had a bite, set it on his lap, SPLASH! He cried so much, the next day I had to go buy him another one!

Also a few years ago, I had caught my personal best walleye, a friend that was with me grabbed it out of the hole, it flopped a little bit and went right back down the hole frown.gif, I think I cried after that. It was atleast 14lbs frown.gif.

Just met my buddies friend for the first time and was a guest of his in his nice big permanent....Checking my tip-up and dropped his new LED flashlight down the hole and stuck it in the mud below shining straight up at my shiner....Stayed lit for almost 45 minutes, but no bites! I thought I might have been on to something had it worked... frown.gif

I fish with an old schooler. I'm not saying he's old, just that he's a little slower to try new things. Anyway after a couple of years of me using glow jigs and charging them up a with super bright LED flashlight, he finally decided to get in on the action. I think he was sick of me constantly outfishing him. He buys a couple of glow jigs and Lindy Tazer. I was already out in the perm when he showed up that morning, and he was so proud of his new gadget that he handed it right over. I gave it the quick lookie loo and found the caribiner hasp. Whoa that's nifty. Thing snapped right out of my hands and right down the hole. Should of had video. We both were leaning over the hole watching it flit back and forth on it's way to the bottom. I looked up at him the same time he looked up at me and we both started laughing. He never even got a chance to use it. I bought him a new one the next day. He wears it on a dealy bob around his neck now.

      People interested in deer still have time to contribute ideas and feedback about possible deer management topics that will shape Minnesota’s first-ever deer management plan, according to the Department of Natural Resources. Possible deer plan topics and an online comment form can be found on the deer plan page. Comments also can be submitted by email to DeerPlan.DNR@state.mn.us and people can attend public engagement meetings that will wrap up Thursday, March 2. Online and email comments can be submitted through Sunday, March 5, and people can both comment electronically and attend meetings in person if they wish. The DNR strives to maintain a healthy wild deer population that offers recreational and economic opportunities, while addressing conflicts between deer, people and other natural resources. Habitat management, hunting, research and monitoring are several primary tools used to manage the Minnesota deer population. More information on deer management is on the DNR website on the deer management page. ## Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Ever wonder how pure maple syrup gets from trees to the table? Visitors who come to one of the free programs at Minnesota state parks will find out everything they need to know to make a batch of syrup in their own backyard, using basic tools from around their house. Programs start this weekend at Whitewater State Park (near Winona). Options include a morning program from 10 a.m. to noon or an afternoon program from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25. Sign up by calling 507-932-3007, ext. 226, or emailing sara.holger@state.mn.us. Additional maple syrup programs will take place at several Minnesota state parks throughout March and early April. For the complete schedule, and more information about how to tap trees and make maple syrup, visit the maple syrup page. Some programs encourage dropping by any time for a demonstration of syrup-making in progress; others offer hands-on instruction with a taste of the finished product. Participants will learn how to identify and tap the right kind of tree as well as how to boil the sap until it is sweet enough to serve on pancakes, waffles or ice cream. Historically, the best time to collect sap has been between mid-March and mid-April, when temperatures are in the high 30s to mid-40s during the day and below freezing at night. It usually takes 30 to 40 gallons of sap from a sugar maple tree to get a gallon of pure maple syrup. The maple syrup programs at Minnesota state parks are free, but vehicle permits are required to enter the parks ($5 for a one-day permit or $25 for a year-round permit). Due to space limitations, some programs also require advance registration. For more information, call the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us or 888-646-6367 or 651-296-6157 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).

      Most ice on the lake is still safe for travel. You just need to use a little common sense and stay away from current areas and possibly getting to close to shorelines, especially South facing ones. Could be 6" of water on the ice in some areas all right but I found only about 3" to 4" on the ice on Tuesday. That will run off or refreeze with a couple of cooler nights and we will have very good going for at least a couple more weeks. Cliff

      Minnesota fishing, hunting and trapping licenses for 2016 expire Tuesday, Feb. 28.  Licenses for 2017 are now available wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold, online  and by telephone at 888-665-4236. All 2017 fishing licenses become effective Wednesday, March 1. New licenses are required for 2016 hunting and fishing seasons that continue past Feb. 28. Customers who purchase online via a smartphone won’t receive a conventional paper license. Instead, they’ll receive a text message or email that serves as proof of a valid fish or game license to state conservation officers. A printed copy of the text or email also can serve as proof of a valid license. License fee dollars support the ongoing work of DNR fish, wildlife and enforcement staff to conserve, enhance and protect our waters, fields and forests. Minnesota State Lottery and Legacy Amendment dollars are not available for the regular costs of doing that work. Learn how the DNR spends license dollars on the License Dollars at Work page.
