FOUND ON ICE - Manna From Heavens

6 posts in this topic

FOUND the morning of 12/19 on bomber trail adjacent Adrians Road: Thirteen cold bottles of beer (Grain Belt Premium and Mich Golden) laying on the groomed trail. These boys were lost and lonely but in excellent condition. Chilled to perfection. I approached with caution and advised that I would take care of them! We were quick to gather the beverage brothers up and welcomed them into our open arms.

Being the good sportsmen we are, we did what you always do when one is lost; sit and wait someone will come to save you. After the first half hour without anyone returning for their lost soliders our patience thinned. We cracked a bottle just to make sure everything was OK, it just doesn't get any better cold beer on the ice! I then thought maybe these beers were gifts from the Ice Fishing Gods; like manna from the heavens; or should we say beers from the northern lights! With gifts in tow we proceeded to the ice house for a great day of fishing. We managed to ice the beers and a limit of walleyes and saugers, releasing one 27" eye.

PS: I have since returned the emptied orphans to the warm and comforts of the local recyling center.

Give thanks and praise to the Ice Gods!!!!!!

Why can't every fishing trip start out that way?

Lureman, with a doubt you did the right thing. Those poor glorious bottles of Golden Nectar could have gone through the ultimate torture before certain disaster. I applaud your decision to rescue them. And yes the fish gods were smiling down on you forsure. Good story..... Fish..

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
