Back In Action

6 posts in this topic

Hello all. My family and I just got back from a week vacation in Fl. Did some fishing while we were there. Caught Ladyfish, Hardhead Cats, Lane Snapper, Red and Gag Grouper, Grunts and Sharpnose Sharks in the channels and out on the Gulf of Mexico. I saw alot of Sheepshead in the channel, but they weren't biting. But, I digress, "There's no place like home." Can't wait to get back on the ice. Heading out this evening for a few hrs. Gonna go for walters and see what I can find. Ahh....it's good to be home.

Welcome back sounds like you had some interesting fishing! The lakes are just starting to get some decent ice and better is yet to come. As far as the fishing I have been out alot and it's hit or miss but I have managed to ice some nice eyes, cats and a few crappies. Mn and the cold are something to be desired but like you said the feeling of getting back home can't be beat! Good luck fishing!

Thanks IceHawk. I just got some bait?(see fresh bait thread) and am waiting for my fishing partner to get here after work. Gonna work a smaller lake in the area for 'eyes tonight. I was out 3 times before we left for Fl. and am itching to get back out. I don't own a boat so this is my thing. Ice, ice, baby!

Welcome back Walleyes!

Looks like we'll be switch spots. I'll be hitting the gulf from south Texas in just over a week for a week of fishing and relaxing.

Good Luck when you finally hit the ice!

Borch, good luck to ya. We were fishing out from Naples cool.gif around 8-10 miles out, over 45 FOW. Lots of smaller fish. Nothing to keep due to min. size limits. tongue.gif I was told the good(bigger) fish were about 18-20 miles out. confused.gif Time constraints wouldn't let us get out that far though. Not sure about the Texas side, though. Have fun, be safe, and catch 'em all! Well not ALL of 'em. LOL. grin.gif

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
