It's an adiction for sure Robert. But I always say, it's better to spend your money doing that than sitting at the bar all weekend.

I am a total Ice Head!!!!! Been out three times already this year..(twice in Ely and once in Duluth). Ely trip was 4 1/2 hour drive and Duluth was 2 1/2 hour drive. Worth the time driven if you ask me......fishing was slow, and most of my friends don't get it.....IT IS NOT ABOUT CATCHING THE FISH...it is about being out there....drilling holes, staring at the Vexilar, firing up the Sunflower.....i LOVE IT! Don't get me wrong, catching fish is a BIG plus.....Doing my first metro lake fish tomorrow night! PUMPED!

Its a bad addiction, to the point it causes problems elsewhere in my life.

Unfortunately between ice & open water being almost back to back, it doesn't give the pocketbook much of a break shocked. To bad you can't take a tax deduction for all this stuff frown (unless you are a guide of course)

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
