Above is one the most intresting tools in my fishing tool box. I was in another forum and talking about tip ups after

season closing and what would dnr think. I use this puppy on mill lacs after season closes for perch. I have been stopped by DNR and they love it after I show it to them.

thought you all might like to look at it. I have gotten sevral e-mails asking what a Finicky's fish factory was.

It has its own heater (never freezes even at -30) that uses reg. oil or camping fuel. Heater dubbs as light in the night. it also has multi-speed power Jigging (runs on battery's), temp gauge (all the way to -40), power vent, adjustable drag, fish on flag and red becon light, port hole to see if fish is on with out opening box. It is light weight and black to absorb heat. You can rest your knee;s on lid when open, so you do not get your knee;s wet.

Its sponsered by fishingminnesota.com. A great item. It costed about $100.00, but i have used it for 8 years and still works great. I display it right on the wall of my garage, I am proud of it.

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
