I'll 2nd the Lil' Hearbreaker... nice rollover for a sweet yelp and high-pitched to cut through the wind. Small for packability too. I've got a Lynch's #102 from 1958 that illicits gobbles too grin.gif

The "Real Hen" by Woodhaven has a great sound for a production call. It's also a little on the expensive side for not being a custom built box call, but worth the money to me.

Lets just say I would pay the extra $20 and get a handmade call before I'd ever look at a mass produced call. There are tons of people making box calls. Most of them will blow the doors off the ones you find at Fleet or Cabelas. The only problem is you might have a short wait and the nationals are next week so it may take a bit to get a good turkey call

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
