How did you turn out in the great white north?

I ended up finding a few gills this morning and proceeded to join Muc33 at the Round lake tourney. Although we (I) only got one bite and one 'eye it was good enough to get me $100. This is the first time I've actually made money for a day of fishing and I kind of like it. There were 178 entrants in the contest and 17 fish were caught in three hours but it was a good time BSing and waiting for that flag to finally fly.

PerchPounder, you lucky devil you! Congrats on your day! I still can't believe how thick the ice is! The JIFFY had a workout! Maybe we will meet up at the next event. I'll be back to Round pretty soon tto get some more of those eyes.

Yeah I know. Luck of the draw but I will take it anyway I can get it. I think we could have had more fish for our group but we weren't trying too hard. Maybe next time.

Way to bring home the bacon.....er.....fishie.....er.....CASH PP!! grin.gif

Just once I wish God would let me ice fish this season without trying to blow me across a lake.

Reelemin, TerryT, Fishin4kids, Trouble 28, myself, and a few others were out on Shetek. The weater really made moving around difficult so we just hunkered down and fished.

I thing Reelemin came in with 5 crappies, Terry T had a couple of crappies and a nice pike, I ended up catching about a dozen walleyes too small to keep and 7 dandy crappies.

I'm still kicking myself. A little over a week ago a friend of mine offered to let me use his Marcum camera for a couple of weeks. I said no thanks. Yeah, I'm that dumb. Once again I saw a ton of lookers on the flasher, but few takers no matter what I did. It seemed the ones that actually did want the bait came in so fast you couldn't even catch them on the flasher. It was fun. All in all, I'll call it a good day on the ice. Sounds like you guys had some good times down on round, too.

PerchPonder sounds like a great day on the ice. Fishing and making money - does it get any better ?

Boilerguy, that was a fun day on the ice. My gosh that wind is unbelievable down there on the prairie. I had all 4 limbs stretched holding onto the inside poles a few times. Even attached to the wheeler and me sitting i9n the seat, I thought I was going to be air born a couple of times !!! crazy.gif

Fishing was so so, Just enough action to keep ya there. Like Eric said the wind kept us from being mobile.

Lots of lookers and a nice crappie every so often would charge and nail the hook. Fun. I also iced a coulple of small (very small \:o , half a fish stick size \:D ) walleyes and a perch.

Boilerguy, its been great fishing you, good luck the rest of hard water season and I'll catch up with you when the water is wavy again. \:D

Tami, if you thought the wind was strong yesterday..... holy moses today was incredible.

Sounds like you guys and gals had a good time. We had some fun too and the Round Lake Sportsmans club had a great turn out. It was great to see SkeeterB there and some other FM'ers. Thanks for coming out.

We really found the walleyes on the night bite on Round the last two days. Gotta get my girls a plate full of fresh ones this week before the season is kaputz! So we will hit it hard and try to fill the fryer one of these nights.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.

      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
    • Wanderer
      Get some sea foam in that gas tank and run ‘er!  I can’t tell you exactly where it’s gummed up, but it is.  It’ll take a tank and maybe two but it should clear up. Or, take the carb back off soak it and clean every oriface you can find by poking and blowing compressed air through all the holes.  Put a new carb kit on it and reinstall. Whichever way you prefer should work. Mix your gas with 100:1 Amsoil next time, especially if you let it sit with gas in it over the summer.  I run about 75:1 and have gotten away without gummed up carbs when forgetting to clear the gas from last year - like today.  First day starting the gas auger.  I found out it wasn’t stores empty like I normally do. Took about 10 pulls but she came around and did fine on the lake today.  I WAS annoyed to find gas in it but I have no one to blame but me.
