The Guides Go Ice Fishing

4 posts in this topic

The word was going around that Gary-the-Guide was really having a lot of success ice fishing over on Norwegian Bay. So "Ace" decided to head west and check out the action.

Sure enough he found Gary over by the Corncrib catching and releasing really nice walleyes at a fantastic rate --- sometimes 2 or 3 in less than 5 minutes.

So Ace drills a hole nearby, but after an hour hasn't had a single tap. Meanwhile Gary has caught and released close to another dozen excellent fish.

Ace has never been skunked like this before, so he sheepishly walked over and asked Gary "What's working for you, man?"

As Gary lands another fish, he looks up at Ace and said, "Mummhummmummhummmumnmunhumm."

"What did you say?"

"Mummhummmummhummmumnmunhumm," Gary repeated.

"Gary, do you have a speech impediment? I can't understand a darn word yer saying!"

Gary pointed his finger up, indicating to wait a minute. He pulled up another nice walleye, dropped his line back in the water, and almost immediately had another strike.

"OK, dammit, either tell me now or else," said the now frustrated Ace.

As Gary removed the fish from the hook, he looked at the agitated Ace standing beside him. He put his rod down and took a large wad of something out of his mouth.

"You have the keep the crawlers warm," he answered.

Thanks for the chuckle Hans!

Made my morning. I always wondered why it was hard to understand Gary when we fished together.

I was expecting the old "Ace, you need to drill a hole through the ice" punchline.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
