I posted this on the ice fishing forum to: I have a spare reciever an was thinking on getting a spare tv an a spare dish an mount the dish hook it up to the reciever an tv to deep cycle battery an just bring a activated card from home each time this should work right? Do ya know how long a heavy deep cycle would last on a reciever an tv. couple days? I know how to point it to the correct longitude an Latitude. Later boar

I don't have one myself, but I do know of alot of people who do, the reciever itself won't take much juice, the T.V is all dependent on size, color drains em faster, etc. Enjoy the channel surfing, I think the reciever will say how many amps etc it draws,

Boar: Don't forget you'll need an inverter to get 120vac to run the converter. A small generator will be the best bet if your going to use it for hours at a time. I have a 1000 watt Honda I use to recharge my deep cycles, but haven't taken out a Sat-dish yet.. I know that my color TV drains the deep cycles pretty fast. They won't last for a for a complete football game when you use the interior lights too.. In my camper I use a tri-pod to hold the dish, which is much better than trying to mount it on the camper. I picked up a quartz light combo at Menard's for $20 and took off the top lamps. It's small and packs away easily.. If you have the local Mpls stations in your package, they come in up at LOTW too...

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
