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.

    •   That's basically what Ryan tried to do with the last bill...authored behind closed doors.   That all worked out well....
    • Just make them pass it before they see it
    •   Democrats have wanted a single payer system from the start, but they don't have the power to pull it off.   The elderly, the healthcare providers and the medical profession are the drivers of the legislation, and they don't want single payer either, since they have already seen what has happened to Medicare coverage.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • Facebook is where it's at...no thanks...
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu
