Bro vs. Genz

32 posts in this topic

I ran into Bro last week at Fleet Farm. Heck of a guy. He went through his entire line of jigs and explained everything. It was my own private 10 minute ice fishing clinic. Which leads to my question:

2 man ice tournament. Bro vs. Genz. Who wins?

Both would be so busy trying to sell you their sponsored products that neither would wet a line. haha

I got Genz.

Chuck Norris doesn't need jigs to catch fish...Chuck Norris just stares down the hole and the fish jump out of the lake and into his bucket.

Sorry Portage Man, that was a major league hijack on my part.

I've never met either Bro or Genz, but I'm sure it would make for good entertainment in a head to head fish off. I say give em each a spud bar and a jiggle stick and a box of waxies.

Now put that on ESPN. I'd love to watch and get their thoughts during an event like that. Hear what they are thinking fishing a lake for the first time against a legend.

that would be cool to see who would be better, I dont know either of them but I think I would put my bet on genz cuz he is the king ice fishing, and the guy has been ice fishing before anyone, so I guess he might just have the experience of it.

But it would be a tough choice though, both are excellent players in the ice fishing game

Chuck Norris does not hunt because the word hunting implies the possibility of failure. Chuck Norris goes killing.

Sorry, after Dtro brought up ol' Chuck I just couldn't resist. wink

I say Genz would win just because of experience.

If they both can use whatever they want I think possibly Genz, if force to improvise Bro. I like the idea of 2-3 rods and a handful of jigs (non-branded the same for each) and some waxies and like an VX1 or FL8 flasher so less then they are used to. Still give them a standard auger so they can run and gun but just make sure the lures and gear are same/same.

That would be fun to see.

Ahhhh.... the teacher vs. the student.

My vote would go Bro, especialy in a panfish run and gun style. Genz may have invented modern ice fishing, but bro has made it his own.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
