I stumbled upon this great site a few days ago, now I wish I would have discovered it earlier! I am looking forward to sharing and recieving some great information, advise, and tips.

A little about me:

I was born and raised in Eastern Montana, went to NDSCS for Welding then just kinda kicked around between MT, WY, and CA. I finally settled in Alaska and have no plans of ever leaving(well maybe vacations, lol). Darkhouse spearing is my main hobby, but I enjoy anything outdoors, especially fishing. This winter I am able to take my 2 year old son with me all the time, now his favorite bath toy is one of my Bear Creek decoys, lol.

Best of Luck to all!!

Welcome. After spearing northern Minnesota this last weekend I can't even imagine how thick the ice must get in Alaska? Normally around Central Minnesota the ice is maybe up to 24". The spear hole I cut this last weekend must have been 36" deep.

We have about the same amount of ice(30"-36") here in south central, but you don't have to drive too far before you need an extension on your auger. I think the weather here in South Central is better then MN, ND, and MT. We don't get the heat like you guys do. Our winter's don't get much colder either, they just last 6-8 weeks longer. Plus since pike are not native to this area, there's no possesion or slot limits. grin

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.

      Friends and family would worry about me if I was too afraid of getting a little wet to go fishing. Every time each one of us drives to the lake or on a lake, we are in danger of a teen girl or drunk killing us. Or a brake failure or shift and throttle or steering cable causing our rig to lose control. I bust through each spring coming off the ice. Which is why I know that it's not fatal. In Nov. I ask the bait shop owner if anybody has been out, if he says "No, its not safe" I smile and buy bait. I've been fishing when waves were crashing onto the ice MANY times. When the 1.25" ice cracks between my feet from a cough... I just DONT cough! If I have my choice I'm going to die while fishing!! That's why I fish more than I sleep or work in a year. You 'safe' people are going to die, maybe in a accident maybe from cancer, 'safe' doesn't matter!! This is who I am!! I spend more money and more time fishing than ANYTHING else!! Don't worry about me, folks!! I have survived tons of close calls.... The time we were on superior ice fishing 6 miles from shore... After dark and nearly got hit by the 1001' American Spirit ship comes to mind. We abandoned most of our gear to run once we realized what was happening. One last time... I WANT TO DIE FISHING!!  Hope that helps you guys understand. Good luck living forever.
