Mad Lake Bomber

I was ice fishing on Lake Washington the other day and caught a few bluegills for the pan. Being as cold as it was, they froze solid on the way home. I got in the house and set the rock hard fish on the counter to thaw them out. About a half hour later I heard something flopping on the counter...the fish were alive! Has this ever happened to anyone else?

When I was younger and dumber, I kept a 7 pound walleye I was going to mount. It froze also and I carried it back home on my lap in the truck to safeguard it. With the heater cranked, it started to flop in my lap on the way home. Scared the @#!# out of me at the time.

Rip_some_lip that cracks me up LOL.

Lets don't go and start jokes on your episode, it could be nasty.... grin.gif

Anyway, I froze minnows completely solid in ice bucket, let them thaw out in the house and they ALL, and I mean ALL come back alive just like nothing happened, and this happened many times.

Wow, that's some crazy stuff. I'm glad I'm not the only one this has happened to. I like the freezing of the minnows idea...that'll keep em' fresh for a long time!

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
