Deitz, you must of missed the first pic. It shows a quantum energy spinning reel, now he may not of been using that reel but Im guessing he was. There for it would be my quess of a soft plastic lure of some sort and not JnP.

I will guess a Tube also.

I'm here... Sorry was busy the last couple of days... First off thanks guys it was a great morning and loved every minute... I did make it out yesterday morning as well.... tried a different lake though. I caught 4 within the first 10 minutes a 19" two 18's" and a 17" all in the reeds, but that ended as fast as it started.... So I moved to deeper water, no bass but did catch quite a few nice sized pike...

Now to answer the questions:

Bait- the only thing these bass would hit was a black and silver spinnerbait. I started with a buzz-bait then switched to a Jig then switched to a senko...nothing. Finally tied on a spinnerbait thinking I'd at least find a Pike... Well that was the secret, in fact the 19" was caught where I previously fished with the jig...I even switched back to a jig thinking it was the weather that turned them on but still nothing... I love it when bass prefer spinnerbaits...

water temp: was 59 degrees on the lake I was fishing.

The fire extinguisher: Funny story, this spring I had a build up of ice on the cover of my boat. Well the weight of the ice made the cover sag. So I thought I would take a shovel and scoop the ice off... That was stupid, I ended up breaking the top of the fire extinguisher and it expelled all of it's contents into my covered boat.... I had a quarter inch of powder every where in the boat... So I've since moved the extinguisher, I just haven't removed the bracket from the old one...

As for the bobber and jig... Well I only clean my boat in the spring. So that is just junk collected from this summer hence the empty bottles also grin

    • 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".
