The word was going around that Gary-the-Guide was really having a lot of success ice fishing over on Norwegian Bay. So "Ace" decided to head west and check out the action.

Sure enough he found Gary over by the Corncrib catching and releasing really nice walleyes at a fantastic rate --- sometimes 2 or 3 in less than 5 minutes.

So Ace drills a hole nearby, but after an hour hasn't had a single tap. Meanwhile Gary has caught and released close to another dozen excellent fish.

Ace has never been skunked like this before, so he sheepishly walked over and asked Gary "What's working for you, man?"

As Gary lands another fish, he looks up at Ace and said, "Mummhummmummhummmumnmunhumm."

"What did you say?"

"Mummhummmummhummmumnmunhumm," Gary repeated.

"Gary, do you have a speech impediment? I can't understand a darn word yer saying!"

Gary pointed his finger up, indicating to wait a minute. He pulled up another nice walleye, dropped his line back in the water, and almost immediately had another strike.

"OK, dammit, either tell me now or else," said the now frustrated Ace.

As Gary removed the fish from the hook, he looked at the agitated Ace standing beside him. He put his rod down and took a large wad of something out of his mouth.

"You have the keep the crawlers warm," he answered.

Thanks for the chuckle Hans!

Made my morning. I always wondered why it was hard to understand Gary when we fished together.

I was expecting the old "Ace, you need to drill a hole through the ice" punchline.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.
