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.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
