First truck on the ice...N. Metro

Recommended Posts

RonZych

We put the big house out on the lake today. Pulled it out with the ATV on the snowmobile trailer. Looked out on the lake and right smack dab in the middle is a pick-up truck! ooo.gifWhen I drilled for the house we had 10 solid inches. I was surprised to see that much ice. There was 8 last weekend in the same spot. And even more suprised to see that truck out there. Sorry, not me. Next weekend for sure. wink.gif

unreal, i bet those guys pet stray pitbulls too. the ice is always safe until. "i hit the one spot on the lake where the ice was thin, there was a good 18 inches everywhere else." or "someone should have told me there was a spring there." maybe "the carp were in shallow and fanning the ice with their tails, who would have known."

#1 breed for reported bites is actually the Golden Retriever. Go figure huh?

You almost wish they'd go through just so they'd learn their lesson... I'd much rather walk and live to fish another day... smile.gif

BigStevie, that's terrible. I too would like to live another day to fish, but wishing that someone would go under? I'm not going to risk driving out until I see tracks on the ice, but I'll have my kids with me. I'll probably give it another couple weeks, unitl then, I'll be getting some exercise. lol. Dave

Not a surprise, given that labs and golden retrievers are number 1 and 2 for popularity in the US, and even hold a bigger lead in households with children.

Stereotyping might not be the best thing to do...but he was only trying to be funny. I actually chuckled. Remember, he did say "stray" pitbulls.

It's obvious that on any individual dog, the way it's raised has more to do with its behavior than what breed it is. But if for some reason you want paint a breed with a broad brush, you will have a hard time with your argument that a golden retriever is a more dangerous breed than a pitbull.

If you're honest with yourself (pitbull owner or not), you will come to the conclusion that, all things being equal, the pitbull breed has a demeaner and strength that neither a lab or a retriever have. I think there's a reason dog fighting doesn't showcase labs or golden retrievers.

What is the topic of this thread anyways!

I think these guys are keeping the chatter up and keeping the post at the top of the forum, untill Ron has a chance to respond back on what lake he is talking about.

Unless he does not want us to know the name of the lake. grin.gif

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      sunday hopefully back on the ice  
    • eyeguy 54
      and they will smell minty fresh!

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.  
    • IceHawk
      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
