"You're on a lake Sir!!!"

8 posts in this topic

Last night during the white out a person realized he was completely lost without his GPS so he pushed the "On-Star" button. He told the person he was lost and needed directions. He was told to wait a couple minutes while they located him. When the call came back they told him they would call again in a few minutes as they thought they had a problem with their system and would have to try locate him again because the system told them that, "You're on a lake Sir!
The person on the other end of the line was based in Florida and had never heard of ice fishing or driving ON a lake. shocked.gif After convincing them that he really was on a lake they gave him directions back to shore. smile.gif

Looks like the extra$$$$ for the On-Star paid off big time! Who knows maybe the florida guy will be on the lake & driving on hard H2o in the future??

My wife and i had the same thing happed to us last year.We had rented a house from west wind and took our five children. to make it short, we had our Chev Suburban which has the onstar system.It was -20 that day and before the fish started to bite our two yougest were starting to get restless so they went into th truck. when they came out one of them hit the auto lock so there we sat with no keys to unlock it.Luckily my wife had the onstar number and luckily i had grabbed my cell phone.I cant remember which state the person i contacted was from by they also could not beleive we were on a frozen lake.Once they had located us it only took 2 minutes to unlock it.Once that was all settled,the the fish started to biteand bite they did, the kids had a blast.Hats off to West Wind.Thanxs again.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.
