Hey Paul, I'll be there I thought I missed it. Look for a big guy(6'5") in a Lindy hat. This is not good I already can't keep my mind off fishin, I don't think hearing Genz will help. We need ice!!!

I lived across the street from him before he was a pro fisherman.My dad used to build the sleds for him when they were made of wood for the fish trap and the vex caddie.he has never seemed to be stuck on himself. Istill see him once and a while and I would listen to what he has to say because I know the experience he has. if you dont care for his attitude . you still can learn a lot from him if you will listen.

I fished with him last winter as I am friends with his nephew, he struck me as a very nice, and down to earth fellow. He was more than willing to share any information he had. Even got to cross a 3000 acre lake with his bearcat sled, I have to get one of those four stroke sleds, it purred across the lake!!!

I thought his seminar was ver informative. When you are in the lime light all the time you seem to develop a huge ego but when you the average joe can look past that you can learn something. I did.I think I learned a lot and I have ice fishing for over 25 years and since I am only 33 that is a long time. I work in an EGO driven industry and have been accused of having a large EGO myself but that is sometimes what it takes to stand up in front of people and do your thing.

Sweet Dead, now all you need is a trailer! Now all we need is about 4 more inches of ice. We'll have to hit that big crappie spot when I get back from Winnipeg.

The sled sounds sweet, I'm sure shes fast. I just purchased a polaris sportsman 500 wheeler and can't wait to see what she'll do in the snow, it'll sure make it easier to be mobile. You been out fishin yet?

haven't been out to fish yet livintofish. Been to busy. the wife works this weekend so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out at all. You'll be happy with that Polaris 500. A buddy of mine has one and it should have more than enough power for what you need. Just hope that we don't get slush ice like last year, or I'll have to pull you out with the sled wink.gif

Peter, if I don't talk to you before this weekend, good luck! break 14 so Noah can be jealous. We'll have to hit the crappie spot soon next week; there should hopefully be enough ice by then to be comfortable with sled.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
