Fishing last Night in the UP

5 posts in this topic

My brother and I were out on a local lake last night when all of a sudden some jerk decides it's time to plow around his ice shack. 20-30 minutes before dark. Then he stops for awhile, then decides to start up again about 20 minutes after dark. I can understand wanting to have your shack plowed out but doing it right at primetime when others are fishing just seems rude.

A little while after he left i caught a 17" eye and a 12" crappie so wasn't totally unproductive night though.

Yeah but who knows how good it really could have been if not for the neighbor. Common sense at prime time.

We have had some of our best luck while running the wheeler around the house. After the fish stopped biting, we would run the wheeler again, and then they started biting again. I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not, but I don't get upset with someone making noise up on top of the ice. I have had my camera down the hole while all sorts of racket was being made on the ice, and didn't see much of a change in the behavior of the fish. That is just my opinion on the noise factor. smile

I understand your frustrations but maybe he works later or that was the only time he could fit the plowing into his schedule. I'm sure it was less out of spite and perhaps more out of necessity? smile

    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?  
    • You don't have to but you will own everything Hillary does.
    • I think I'd rather it be dirty than apply solvents to it.   It is a four-wheeler, not a corvette.  They are made to be dirty  I might try armor all or something but i'd stick with something made for automotive purposes.
