Floatation Devices

4 posts in this topic

After watching the post on Falling through the Ice:

http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=457381&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

Has anyone consider using any type of Floatation. The last thing I want to do is carry anything more or be more bulky, but given the thought it could help you survive, It begs consideration...

Any thoughts, Ideas....

I have the "Sospenders" inflatable life jacket. its automatic or manual fill. kinda spendy but hey its my life.

If you use these, remember to where them on the outside of your clothing.

The first few times out every year I wear my life jacket. I usually am fishing on a small lake by Walker that freezes early but it's no major hardship to put it over my jacket. If you think about it it's pretty amazing that we don't wear some type of floatation

I have and use a Mustang survival (classic) jacket for any time I'm fishing and the potential for survival in the water is limited due to cold weather. Basically early spring, late fall and early ice this jacket is on my back and it's a comfy and warm jacket. Check out their site. Spending money on life saving equipment is a good investment.

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
