Kelly,

I will be renting from you this next Wednesday for a night along with my 14 yr old son and a 16 yr old nephew. Based on the youngsters ages there won't be a whole lot of adult beverage consumption occuring in the house, but maybe a little to keep the blood thin on my part and maybe to drown out the boys voices if the fishing is slow! (I also think this voices thing may be another use for Ice Buster bobbers!)

Just wondering if there is a certain beverage or two that I could have available for you or Jon when you are ready to call it a day on the ice. Your profile indicates a preference for "Cap" but need to know what else would go in and whether that works for Jon if he stops by instead!

If you wait until dry land to quench your thirst that is fine but I'm a boy scout thru and thru and always want to "Be Prepared"!

Looking forward to my first sleeper on URL and watching those boys when they catch their first walleye through the ice and maybe even a crappie or two.

Yes I sail with the Capt. on rare occasions. grin.gif Speaking of kids. A group out there last night had a young boy with his little snowmobile. Everytime the bite slowed down they would send the kid out to drive his snowmobile around the house and they would get 2 or three crappies right away every time. confused.gifshocked.gif Jon said it was amazing.

I have noticed on LOW in the past that when the guides would stop by or they pulled a house by us that they were moving that I seemed to catch more fish. Not sure why other than the disturbance and waves in the water. I'll test the theory by having the boys run around the house for awhile and if I catch more fish inside then they can keep it up!

I may have sailed with the Captain in the past but it has always been the "crash" into the dock that wasn't as pleasant.

I'd be happy with 2-3 crappies in the pail instead of every time just to say we got some!

I talked to Foster about this and as all of us know Foster can never be trusted to tell us the truth about fishing but after numerous Miller's he did say that he has started dropping his V-Plow and running a U-turn around his house's. This crappie bite is at times strangley aggressive,,,,,,noise??????

Years ago I had a father/son that came fishing fairly often. They always wanted their house over rocks. They had an hourglass shaped rock on a rope that they bounced off the rocks on the bottom every 10-15 minutes. They caught a lot of fish. The son was a Navy diver. He said that in the summer he would dive down and lay on a rockpile banging 2 rocks together and that the walleyes would come to him.

I don't drink, that smart mouthed twin of mine drinks way to much Vodka. grin.gifwink.gif

As for the noise I was amazed, everytime the kid would start tearing around the house those guys would start catching fish.

So what is the per hour charge to get your evil twin sauced up on Vodka and have him ride one of those little kid snowmobiles around the shack? And what would the business be called? Jonny P's Custom Crappie Calling, maybe. grin.gif

Little sled...hmmm. Evil Jonny hasn't done that one. He did jump one of those little motor cycles into a swimming pool, that was called "Jonny meets mad pool man." Best to just stay away from small motor toys. wink.gif

Oh man, that's hilarious. Been awhile since I burst out laughing at a post. Really brings me back. I've got an evil twin also, but I haven't seen him since I quit drinking. He was a blast. I really miss him sometimes, but at least he's not around to steal out of my wallet and say things without my brains permission anymore. Here's to good fishing and have fun up there tripleplay.It's great to be able to get up there mid-week.

Ya thankfully my look alike is getting older and slower, but you should have seen the look on the poor pool guys face the next morning. He stood there looking at a little 80 Yamaha motorcycle in the bottom of the pool then he would look at the remains of the picnic table used for a ramp then back at the motorcycle in the pool while holding his little net.

He did have a sense of humor, he looked at me and said "I'm gonna need a bigger net, and you are going need a bigger checkbook to fix this." When I got the bill I realized he wasn't really that funny. shocked.giflaugh.gif

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On!

      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick

      What a difference a day makes, yesterday the dam was locked up tight and today it's roaring. Walleye should be running this week...

      Well this morning was officially the end of the ice season for me.   Its been a lot of days on the ice this winter and I have to admit I'm  a little burnt out.   It wasn't easy but it was time to end it.  Have to admit It was a sad moment putting the gear away but it was time as needed space today to put the boat in the garage   Learned a lot of new water and reacquainted myself with some old standbys. Fished 10 different counties this winter so definitely fished a lot of different areas.  Fished many species on the ice this winter so there never was a dull moment. Didn't take a ton of pics just a few need to take more just have never been a pic type of guy LOL.   Iced 7 walleyes between 26-28 3/4 all on local lakes.  So just a tip if you dedicate some time locally big eyes can be found. Fished panfish everywhere in the state highlight area for big fish being Becker and Ottertail Douglas counties. Biggest gill this winter was 10 3/4    many 10's came topside but couldn't break 11 this winter. Craps 15 inchers were tops. Good fish but had goals set at a 16.  Some things learned this ice season where number one lure for the eyes was a old school hammered silver Swedish pimple. It far out produced anything else.   Kenders tungsten where my mainstay for gills and crappies. The plastics of choice were power bait wishbones,  chigger frys, and Northland impulse mayfly's.  The catfish were a hoot and a  change of pace did well on Maynards slammers Glow red. The equipment and gear I was running and never failed me all season were Thorne Bros Rods- For eyes Perch sweethearts. For the Panfish I was running  Power Noodles, panfish sweethearts,  and my favorite the Tripwire. Reels Pflueger Presidents, Prestige ,and Supremes.. Did use some inlines also from 13 fishing The free falls where worth every penny. Ran a K-Drill 8 inch early and late and During the thick ice Ran my strikemaste Lazer.  Vexilar Electronics the old trusty FL18 my eyes underwater, Please Don't  think that I'm pushing these products because I'm sponsored by them, I'm Not. Just want to give a thumbs up and honest opinion on  some top notch equipment that has worked and weathered the storm of a good hardwater season. Realize we all work hard for our dollars and I can honestly say these products where worth every penny and never let me down!  Well Off to the Garage to start getting the boat ready for the Next season  By the Way big Shout out to some of the best Anglers I had the chance to share the ice with this season from FM.  Thanks  Borch,  Bass Thumb,  Moose,  Eyeguy, Rick G , Tom Sawyer for shareing some ice time with me.  Hopefully I get to meet and fish with a few other FMer's this summer or next hardwater.  We had some great Times great laughs and managed to even ice a few fish   Looking forward to having a few summer outings in the future.  BYE BYE Ice Hello open water

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!
