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..

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
