The Big Question

13 posts in this topic

Situation:

11 buddies and I are going up to Dickie’s this weekend. Half of us are avid fisherman and the other half will be buying licenses this weekend. There will be A LOT of alcohol involved. We are bringing a few portables so a few others and myself will be on the move on Saturday. I already have 3 dozen shiners bought and sitting in my garage with an aerator running.

Background:

Same trip last year we caught 6 walleyes with 2 being over 28 inches.

Intangibles:

All I do is produce.

THE QUESTION:

With this years bad bit I am putting the over/under at one walleye. What are you taking?

I will take the under.

Sounds like the same exact trip we had up there 2 weekends ago with a group of the guys from college, granted the weather kept us locked down from being portable on Saturday. We were up Friday morning and the few of us that are avid fisherman moved around 3 mile reef during the day but only caught a few perch. No walleye for us all weekend.

12 guys at Dickies and 16 gallon keg and more, and 2/3 the guys needed to buy licenses up there and were at the bar most of Saturday for the Arctic Blast.

We had a good time though!!!

Here's what was under our 12 man Dickies house.....a bunch of 3" perch.

Dan-

It looks like you are the only one with any faith. Maybe the others didn’t see the last part about me producing. Just to show them up I will have to take your advice about not drinking till 8 or 9, but I know I will have a few beers down by 10 A.M.

I am taking the OVER! I am glad I am not the only that drinks in the am ice fishing. Somebody will get one in the 26-28" range. Good luck, have fun!

I'm thinking this years spread is:

2 Over

+ 4 Pout

Odds are 5/7 to cover.

Odds on Hangovers are not being accepted at this time.

For those of you who took the under you were spot-on. I don’t think the house we used had been moved all season and the people that were there before us tried to make a reef under it with beer cans. We only saw one walleye on camera and that was Saturday when we got out of the house and move around. As for the final totals:

3 eelpout (which does include my league leading 3rd year in a row)

Estimated 278 perch (3-5 inches) many were following a very precise two ice scoop on the bottom of the lake pattern also under the house

10 perch (8-10 inch range) Key: get away from house

1 burnt hat and then head on uncovered mantel. We kept telling him that it might grow back and it looks sweet.

27 hang-overs (yes some people had 3)

1 trip to the hospital (see burnt head)

465 dollars in fines handed out by local law enforcement

3 college educations “donated” to the “dancers” in Bock

0 Beer cans left on the bottom of the lake or on top of the lake from our party

And yes one heck of a good time

Sounds like you guys had a good time and glad to hear you didn't contribute further to the beer can reef...the donations are fairly self explanatory but I'll bet there are a couple of great stories between the burnt head and the $465...care to elaborate??

Yeah, I am curious to the $465.00 too. I am thinking it wasn't due to an illegal fish!

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
