Congratulations to Myron and Joe - 2008 NAIFC Champs

3 posts in this topic

Back to back boys it doesn't get any better than this here's an excerpt from Joe's commoents. Kyle and I talked with both of them during the NAIFC last season. Great guys on and off the ice. Congratulations on your championship.. and Joes response to winning is right here...

Sorry this post is a day or two late. I'm still over whelmed with enthusiasm of doing so well at the first NAICF National Championship at Rhinelander WI. Once again I would like to pass on a special thanks to the many volunteers and the city chamber of the Rhinelander community. Their outgoing effort, enthusiasm, and hospitality was the perfect ingredient in the most outstanding accomplishment for the NAIFC National Championship. Thank you Rhinelander.

Mike McNett and Jack Baker my hat is off to you. I personally know all of the hard work that was put into the past year. You two pulled off the impossible. Putting this into words would be like hitting a grand slam in the ninth inning at the world series.

During the many years with the tournament trail friendship bonds created with other teams from over the ice fishing belt in the U.S. is over whelming. Those friendships will never be forgotten either will our sponsors. By working with these fine people friendships have been formed.

Some of our first sponsors Clam and Ice Armor really helped us out this tournament. During the second day in the tournament the rain and sleet could have made our day uncomfortable. But, Myron and I stayed dry, warm, and able to compete all day! Thank you Smitty.

Our dealer from Your Bobbers Down armed us with 5 mm glow wolfram Fiskas jigs. These tungsten jigs help us fish deep water fast and quick. It was perfect for the deep water we were fishing in at Rhinelander. Jamie is a good friend as well as a sponsor. Thanks.

Complimenting the Fiskas jigs, was the New Jumbo Nuggies in glow. This is a new product that compliments their line of plastics. While using these Jumbo Nuggies bigger crappies engulfed our jigs. This gave us our solid lead on Saturday.

Rick from Little Atom is also a good friend. Over the years of knowing him and his family our friendship as grown. Ricks mother Daloris spoiled us with her kindness and hospitality when we stayed at her house.

A compliment to our ice trolling is the Ice Gator. The faster cutting rate made it possible for us to cover the lake faster then we ever have in past years. Thank you Greg, CEO of Ice Gator.

Jason Mitchell has some of the finest rods I have used for ice fishing.

Our most present sponsor is HT. Myron and I stopped by the companies head office and were over whelmed at the show room. There were many floors with tackle, reals, and equipment for ice fishing. We were welcomed and made to feel like part of the family. Thanks to Ken, Tom, and Rachel.

Nature Vision provided us with our Markem LX5 flashers. When fishing among other teams the LX5 uses its feature to reduce feedback. This makes it possible to fish between teams. Thanks Trevor and John.

Thank you: Zobocks Bait Tackle and Moter Repair, Duey Davis Construction, Asplundh, the film crew Brian and Josh at Adventure Media Productions, and Kevin at the Wright Signs.

Joe Pikulski and Myron Gilbert the Ice Trollers.

    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect....... 
    • I think I had a about a 2" lip.  I took (2) 1x2's the width of the door and nailed them together, and routered a 45 on the one side, basically making one of those threshold ramps above.  Also routered a groove underneath to hide my propane line.
