Good ice fishing dog

I just had to post this picture of my dog, she likes to come out to the permanent fish house to hang out, she just couldn't stay up with the rest of us. She's actually a very good dog and the only place she's allowed up on anything off the floor is in the fish house so she takes advantage of the nice soft bunks!

Nice pic. She's got half decent taste in beer too.

Sorry about the eyes. If you look closely at the vexilar, you can see one of those famous URL crappies right there. Also a good shot of dirty ice if you ever hear the term. Never had any success teaching her to reel but she won't release if one hits.

That's a new twist on force fetch training!

Cool, I know the feeling - my pup tried to hang with us in the ice house, too. Just couldn't make it.

My buddy had the best ice fishing dog ever, she would stand over the hole and point the bobber, motionless, until the bobber went down then she would start barking! Talk about a better version of a tip up.....

took my lab out on thge lake for the first time ever when she was 8 weeks old, wnet over to a group of guys and was talking to them aboot the fishing. every time she saw someone start reeling up a crappie she would run over stand between his legs and stare down the hole until the fish came up, she would lick it a couple times and then walk away looking for the next person to start reeling one up.

I guess I should add - I did teach him to jump onto the bunk and out of the way when one of the rattle reels go. Works great at night if you happen to be sleeping a little too soundly for one reason or another.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
