One more reason to love fishing

Recommended Posts

I had a buddy take me out to fish for bluegill and we found them but we also pulled large spinners for pike. That was a ton of fun. I don't know how someone could get bored with fishing with all the different techniques and fish to catch. I love learning new ways to fish. It does get expensive sometimes though.

I should have you explain that to my wife. She thinks I shouldn't need anything more than a cane pole and a hook ... is that crazy thinking or what.

I love everything about fishing weather it is on ice or on a boat.

I love going out on lakes and fishing for as many species of fish as I can. Start the day out fishing for Carp in the early afternoon, then catch some panfish and crappies on a beatlespin. Once the day gets later toss out some spinnerbaits for Bass and Pike. Then as the sun starts getting low toss out a sucker minnow for Muskie/Pike.

not just the fishing aspect of "just fishing", but the nature around you. i know we all cant be where we want to be at times, but you cant beat wading in a northern trout stream or being on a remote lake just reflecting on life with the beauty around you. good luck.

You should explain to her she only needs a comb for all her hair care and could do without anything other than bar of soap for beauty care.

On topic. Nothing like feeling the tug of line to bring a smile to my face.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?

      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch teelsnoften so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.

      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!
