looks like you guys had fun! maybe someday my 4 year old son will be more into the fishing rather than throwing snow in his dads holes! he made it about 3 hours out with me one day last year. anyhow, glad you guys got out and had some fun! and obviously stayed plenty warm! were you in the wheel house already?

sweet! when Dave said you guys were out, i thought and then rethought! i was thinking, he is out with shawn and his daughter...so they must be in the wheel house!? not bad! december 20th and someone i know and trust to not be foolish and risky is out with a wheelhouse! that sure helps you make the most of the ice fishing season! as for the get together, ill have to look into that! a bunch of fm'ers and their kids out on the ice together sounds like a ton of fun!

Nice pics, these remind me of a story one of my friends told me the other day. He brought his 3-4 yr old granddaughter out ice fishing the other day, but had to turn around and head home as soon as they got set up... Later that night when his wife asked the little girl if they got to ice fishing she said "no". Grandma asks "are you sure you didn't get to go fishing?". The little girl responds "well, we got out there, but then I pee'd my pants so we had to come home. We'll try again tomorrow though." Too funny.

I'll go ahead and speak for Shawn here...He meant that it was cold OUTSIDE, not in the house smile

You guys should see how excited she gets while reeling in a fish. It's just about the most adorable thing I've ever seen!

Fishon, you're welcome to bring Gavin out anytime. If nothing else, we can fire up the TV so he can watch a DVD or two. Shawn's daughter has been known to veg in front of that thing from time to time grin

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
