What did you kick or drop down the hole this first weekend out.

I didn't loose a thing, and considering there is a 20 x 46 inch sight fishing hole in my permanent I contribute to the God of the Lake quite often.

I lost my Frabill tip up light. I was picking up my tips at the end of the night ... saw the red flashing light coming from my hole. Thought wow that light really reflects bright off the top of the water in the hole, then realized it was coming from down at the bottom of the hole ... doh!

Only being in about 6 FOW and clear ice, it was cool seeing that hole area blinking red from under the ice. Them Frabill lights blink bright. Should've checked the next day to see if it was still going.

Sure glad those things are relatively cheap.

The wing nut on my tip up came off...and when i went to pick it up to leave, the entire bottom part of the tip up with the spool swished into the hole.

I dropped the knob for my camera tripod this weekend.

Go get a new one from Cabelas, they will back it up. Also it has the same camera as marcums, it a sony so I would just try and get a new from Cabelas. We have the same ne with the 7 inch screen great camera! If the light is not enough buy the aqua view add on light and just zip tie it too your silver weight.

My nephew somehow kicked his vex down a chopped hole (no it wasn't intentional). He was able to reach quick enough up to his armpit in the hole and grab some part of the submerged machine, and amazingly the unit still worked after a day of drying out. My guess is that it will fail at some point down the road.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
