ice fishing with a vexilar is like playing baseball with steriods against a team of midgets. Trust that.

I once going to Osakis turned around and drove 90 miles back to my home because I forgot my Vex!

Ya gotta do it!

I have never used a Vex.

Come to a lake I know...and I bet I will catch just as many fish.

On lakes I don't know, I wish I had one....

But, I know so many lakes...I don't think the cost is worth it yet.

What are you willing to bet??? j/k. Not saying you wouldn't outdo me, but I would bet quite a bit you wouldn't. You probably know way more that myself, but that's why I need my Vex.

Warning, if you do get one, you'll be doomed as we are. You won't icefish without it, again.

ps - Is that a "real" lure from the good old days, or a joke. Sometimes it's hard to tell what we used to try to catch fish with in the past. Fun looking old lures and imagining using some of them when fish hadn't seen any lures before.

I actually have used one before, but never owned one.

I guess I am too lazy to carry it out on the lake...and do just as well without it. Over Christmas I took on a friend with a fish locator on "his" lake (which I knew well). He and I each found a spot...50 feet apart. He was doing better...I moved 15 feet further away...and did better. I still like to rib him for it! We bet a whopping $10.

I guess I like to fish the "old world way" and use old poles and sometimes old lures too...so that is just me. I don't even have a reel on my old wood ice fishing pole. I know about 12 lakes in my area EXTREMELY well, so I catch my share of fish.

But, I see no problem with using one.

By the way, that lure is real and from the 1930s. It was called the "Hungry Jack". I am sure it caught more fisherman that fish.

lol. As most still do. Seems like there's a few tried and true, with a few breakthroughs here and there. I'm guilty of being caught,still today, by more than my share of lures that catch more fisherman than fish. Can you say Banjo-Minnow or The Flying Minnow. I even just about got that thing at the sportmans show that backs up under the dock. Maybe this year. lol.

Believe it or not but until last year I actually used an old green box lowarnce for my flasher unit! 5 bucks at a garage sale and you are in business...just turn the sensitivity up and you will see your jig and fish coming in without a problem. I rigged it all up to use it for ice fishing. The most cost into it was the transducer to be able to set it up for ice fishing.

I gave that up last year however...and moved up to a "Clearware Pro"...a flasher unit out of an old boat. It was free and again spent $50 for a transducer and away I went.

I actually miss the old green box though.

Fish On!

      It is strange that the developers did not think of such a nuance. In any case, you need to place an ad on the labor exchange, where you will find employees for the company and they will work with you, only you will need to conduct a preliminary interview

      Creating an application for such a hotel would be the best option. Place your ad on the job exchange on the Internet, I know a few of these, then you can find developers for yourself and the work will go much easier

      You won’t have to search for a long time, rather you will need to choose from the options offered. Look on the Internet for all the available options, such developers usually have their own sites that have all the information you need

      I am sure that if you search in the google search engine you will find a company that is dedicated to that, but to be honest I have not much idea, I never planted the idea of something like that, from my ignorance it is very complicated, but maybe someone who have more notion of it can guide you and can even recommend a company with a good reputation that is dedicated exclusively to it, good luck with all that

      Haven't really targeted geese, think we've got 3 Ross geese a blue goose and one Canada goose. We focus more on ducks, especially when we can get them in the field. Greater and lesser Canada geese around but they are spread out tons of feeds but no large feeds

      Finally got the choirs done. Roofed a shed and built a woodshed. Most done by myself. Now's time to go fishing before the deer season.  Found some crappies tonight, caught 11, missed at least that many. West end. Skunked again, how'd you do, saw you heading out?

      The three on top of the pile are geese. Smurfy. 😉   +1 on the decent shooting!  Thanks for the pics.  This was one post that got me to log back in to spam central.   Going dark again….
    • smurfy
