Sometimes catching fish is just a part of the fun

1 post in this topic

I was just up on the 15-17 of Feb. with my 3 brothers and 2 of them never really fish. I really was looking forward to a good time and hopefully no bad drama. Things went great! I really must say.... Rick took great care of us at HighBanks! The house was great, the service was awesome. He came out to make sure all was good, and we had some of the "Legendary" Drummies at the bar....mmmmm good. Hard to beat that. Sounds like it has been a rough year as far as the gear goes for Rick, but the guy keeps it going! Gotta take my hat off to 'em. The fishing could have been better, but seeing the 22" eye come through the floor was real nice, and I am sure my bro's are enjoying them Jumbos! The lack of fish is all on Mother Nature. I hope that some of you guys out there don't frown upon your guide or resort owner for bad fishin, they can't control it. We all know how hard it can be to get on and catch them late ice 'eyes. Not an easy task. The guides and ownere are very busy people too. I really appriciate the great time on the ice with my brothers, and it is something that I hope to do again each winter. I will be callin on Rick without a doubt. If you want a good place to stay... High Banks, without a doubt in my mind. Thanks again! -Adam-

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
