Congratulations to Myron and Joe - 2008 NAIFC Champs

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
