FOUND ON ICE - Manna From Heavens

Recommended Posts

lureman

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..

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
