Big School, glare does not help to show how many fish are in the school.

When you lose your fly and you have worms and an extra pole you catch more, except I didn't have a regular hook, they were really hungry, they still ate the worm that was on the lure.

Just make sure it drops in front of one, and it should take it. That day the only color they would take was pink. I also tryed black and yellow and got nothing.

Those are Golden Redhorse, just a little off in color. Congrats on getting one on the fly!

are you sure it's not just the lighting, I am pretty sure they were silvers. In the sun they didn't look golden at all.

Mudcatboy Knows his stuff!

At first glance I thought Golden. Mud has seen thousands of redhorse and has caught a black redhorse which is pretty impressive in MN. After seeing hundreds you get to know the look even if they are off a little. The coloring has little effectiveness in IDing a fish. The cover they are on and water they are in effects the color. The dorsal fin was a giveaway on your fish concave not convex.

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
