Hey Jim-

Good question, Hunting has just started but ice fishing is just around the corner, hummmm?

It's too hard to pick just one, so here's a few.....Early ice walleye tactics, anything that has to do with big lakers sounds fun, smallies through the ice, a spearing webcast might be sweet, superior salmon/steelies/loopers in the duluth area (if we ever get enough ice), a serious pout mission, tip-ups for big pike, monster cats through the ice-doh! now I've got the bug come on ice!!!!

Tip-ups for pike and plastics for panfish would be good topics. A spearing one would be interesting too.

Tip ups and spearing would be cool. For tip ups show differnt tricks with line, hooks, baiting, and early late season locations. I've never speared and would like to try it sometime. It would be cool to cover the basics.

I would really like to see some tips on searching for fish, from discerning potential spots on a lake map, to searching for fish and setting up on them. How to use electronics better to read the lake and catch fish.

Some stuff on lakers, tip ups for pike. Particularly how to best take advantage of a piece of structure. If it is just you, or 2 guys, 3 etc.

Targeting perch and Walleye, peak times. Also the Superior laker and salmon idea sounds pretty sweet too.

I second the how to read a map and start a gameplan. To me nothing is more intimidating/frustrating than hitting a new lake that you hear great things about but not really knowing how to set out a gameplan for fishing that lake I've never been to.

i'll also second gvg_uwec and chode2235.

It would be cool to see how you guys look at a lake and say that its good for crappie/blugills.

I'd like some tips/secrets for using tip-ups. I love seeing that flag pop and the top just a spinning.... Nothing better in my opinion

I wouldn't mind some tips on panfish, especially when to use what tactics, and where to use them. Also where to find panfish throughout the year.

In fact, I wouldn't mind learning about the locations of ALL fish species throughout the season, because that's probably my biggest general problem in ice fishing, I'm not sure where to go a lot of the time.

As far as specifics, I wouldn't mind seeing just a Tips and Tricks episode, where we get shown how to fine tune gear, little ideas and things that people've thought up to help out the process, that kind of thing.

I'd love to see a tip up fishing video for pike, but I think that might be a little cliche', there're a lot out there, and there's not much material for a whole episode.

I think panfish'd be the best, because they're the most common in the state, and easiest to fish for.

A video that shows the people what the bottom looks like through a underwater camera and then what it looks like on their Vex, Marcum, Lowrance or whatever flasher they use. have several different areas and bottom content and show them what it looks like on both. I dont think most people really know what bottom looks like on a graph or flasher.

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
