So what is the story behind your choice of avatar? Mine is just a simple big fish story on my favorite lake.

I just like to shuffel through various pics. In fall I had a pic of me and the kids with some geese, this one is of a 'eye I got ice fishing on LOTW, hopefully I'll get a pic of a pannie in the near future, and then hopefully I'll get a pic of an 'eye after the opener. Just change my avatar as the various seasons progress. smirk.gif

Just one nice eye I hooked on the Rainy River a few springs ago. BDR was behind the wheel and camera that day.

Mine is from my last perch trip on Mille Lacs Feb. 24th.

It might look like the video repeats, but really I was hammering them left and right...What a day!

Oh, if I look a little jaundice (yellow) that is because I traded one of my livers for a portable ice shelter the week before the trip.

My dog's sight pointing a robin in a shrub. Pretty good style and intensity for a pup.

My two kids doing the "Fishies" dance around the minnow bucket. Needless to say the wife doesn't appreciate the dance that much. It is performed in the garage now, that is until the boat hits the lake

Mine is a picture of me before the opening kick off of a football game against Red Rock Central from my Junior year, came back in the second half from 18 down to win that one.

I really should get something up from the championship game in the Dome, or maybe something of a fish.....

Ummm... I guess its just a catfish. tongue.gif

Actually, it was the biggest cat in the boat that remarkeable weekend last June on the Red River. 40 cats in 2 days fishing for a grand total weight of over 600 pounds. Unreal! I think we had 6 cats over 20lbs.

First big catches, even if dwarfed by later catches, are always memorable. Thats what this one is.

I started bass fishing only a couple years ago. This pic was of a 3+ pounder in the first year I started that I pulled out from under a fallen tree trunk in 3 feet of water in Mink/Somers on a wacky rigged 4" black senko. It was a hot, windy summer day, and the sun was just tipping over the treetops. This is the fish that sealed the deal for me and my bass addiction. My buddy Greg snapped the shot. Since then I've done most of my bass fishing alone, so my bigger fish don't have photos.

Two December birds, my favorite time of the year to hunt roosters. Snow and heavy cattails.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
