Ohhhh Noooooo....Thats gotta hurt. Sorry man. Been there done that. It happened to me some years back. It was a 5 dollar pole so that wasnt so bad. But I turned away for a second and I could hear it being dragged across the ice. Just as I turned ....nothing. It was gone. Didnt even see it go down the hole. Caaaaraaap!!! You are now part of the Brotherhood of the Lost Pole. Welcome....

Happened to me once, approx 6 years ago. A new Thorne Bros rod and Tica reel. It was the first time and last time I ever used that rod. Only thing good about the whole deal was Thorne Bros go another rod and reel sale.

A few years ago a bunch of us were up on red, and one of my buddys who is not an ice fishing addict like myself was making fun of me for bringing up 7 rods. Well not 15 min later he got into a huge pike that snapped his rod right where rod and cork handle come togather. Probably 15 min later he had his other rod tucked between the canvas and side pole of my clam 6800. he got a nice bite and wasn't paying attention and that one went down the hole too. So in a half hour of fishin my buddy lost both his rods. funny how he was calling me crazy for brinig up 7 rods. of course I borrowed him a couple of rods, but replacing them at the bait shops around red wasn't cheap. I myself have lost a lanturn down the hole and 3 different glow chargers and countless depth finders. I guess if a guy fishes enough something is bound to go down the hole at some point. so keep your chin up. Those summer scuba divers need something to look for down there.

I was on Mille Lacs way back, and fishing in a rented perm. I went out to check the tip-ups while all the others stayed inside, told them to watch my rod, and from outside I can hear that familiar slide of ice rod on plywood floor. Then I hear the splash, and laughter. I run back in to see what was going on and they told me they watched my rod be taken down the hole by a fish. At this point I was kinda ticked, and not more than three minutes later, my cousin gets a "bite" and reels up his line to the point he can see the jig. He said he couldn't see a fish but could feel it. So I jump over to where he was and hand over fist his line out of the water only to find my line wrapped around his hook. So I then pull the jumbo perch up the hole and followed that up by my rod. Still have that combo, though it has been retired.

When I was a kid it was boat fishing with my dad and a big ole eye hit my jig, I wasnt paying attention and it took my pole. The next morning my dad went out again and caught a 9 pound waleye with anouther line in its mouth. It was mine, I was so [PoorWordUsage] off! I wanted to get a new pole and that one just coming back!

I guess I'm not the only one! Early December I lost my St. Croix to something snappy. When I stood up to warm myself not 8' from the hole I saw my bobber go down ever so slightly, like a crappie, then bam, the fish pulled it out of the rod holder on my bucket and toward the hole. I jumped at the hole and could feel the cork at my fingertips. I was so upset, and the worst part was that I had to walk back to the truck soaked up to my armpit and frozen. blush.gif

Dont feel too bad... I put a 10" auger down the hole this year, Forgot to grab mine so i stopped at my bro's house and grabbed his and he has one of those new quick connect deals for the extension and stuff,(would not reccommend it to anyone) well anyway it wasn't tightened very well so i drilled one hole then at the bottom of the second i watched it sink straight to the bottom in 25 FOW into silt where it was burried up to the center shaft all you could see is the auger blades sticking out of the silt with the aqua vu.. So i had some choice words that i blurted and a arm that was wet up to my elbow!

Speaking of poles down the hole, my buddy and I were fishing in my new Canvas Craft 6x8 a few years back. It was a little windy that day and the sides of the house were moving around a little. Apparently I did not have one of the supports poles locked in place too good. A gust of wind came and knocked it off on one end. It swung down and landed right in the hole. The other side prompt detached itself and down the hole it went. Granted my reaction time wasnt too good that day thanks to the Schnapps bottle. crazy.gif Canvas Craft was happy to sell me another for a meeger $25

Kinda off the subject, but nonetheless a funny story. So a few friends and I were duck hunting this year up in Devils Lake, ND. It was extremely cold out and we had just finished a long day of hunting. I, however, knowing how good the fishing could be at sunset and shortly thereafter decided to go out and see what happened. All of them laughed at me and called me crazy and said I wouldn't catch a thing. Well wouldn't you know it, I got out there and immediately started slamming the fish. Within literally 20 minutes I had my limit.

Then I decided to pull up and go in to brag about my catch. Funny thing happened when I got back and threw my stringer...I noticed something funny- I didn't think the stringer was that long. The fish kept diving deeper and deeper. The stupid stringer had came undone and all of the fish got away! So much for bragging rights.

There's a SpongeBob SquarePants rod off of Sunset Point if anyone would like to return it to my 5 year old.

Years ago my brother and I were fishing and he had one of the old style jigging poles get pulled down a hole. I thought it was pretty funny at the time. A little later he was doing something by one of his holes and suddenly stuffed his arm down the hole, next thing I know, he comes up with the pole he lost, and it still had a small pike on the hook. He saw the bobber go by his hole first, followed soon after by his jig rod. I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it!

THE GREEN HORNET! I did a Google image search looking for a still from the movie with the hornet in it, to use as my avatar. I guess nobody else on the internet has the same priorities as me. I ended up settling for the Lakco guy, which is not a bad alternative.

I had one of those red single-mantle Coleman lanterns fall in a hole once, but I was able to grab it before it sunk. But it was the end of the day for the Lantern.

There's probably untold hundreds of spuds and slush scoops at the bottoms of these lakes, though I haven't lost one personally.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?
    • slammer
      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
