    Frozen shack

    What do you think of 100 grams of pyrodex with a 405 grain round in the .50 cal muzzy? If my buddy does shoot out his shack, I will be standing on the other side of the pickup with eye protection. I might wear a cup too.

    Frozen shack

    My knucklehead buddy didn't block his 8x8 quasi skid house high enough. With the weekend rain and now cold temps, it is permanently secured in place on the lake. What is the preferred caliber for breaking a shack lose? What is the best angle to shoot the ice to get maximum explosion?

    Smoking Tullibee

    Smoked tullies are da bomb. Every man should have a smoker in their arsenal. My allegiance lies with the Weber Smokey Mountain especially with the price of pork being so low. It is a Weber which speaks for itself. Find a good brine recipe (I am having problems finding my go to brine) and smoke them for a few hours.

    Gopher radio broadcast

    Who carries Gopher mens basketball on the radio? WCCO? I can't find a local affiliate that carries them. I haven't had any luck finding them online without paying some coin.

    Go with the cotton/wool half-finger with flip over mitt. Keep them out of the water and snow though.

    Stuck in the Slush - A Little Help??

    I think one of the last times I helped a guy ice fishing, I dropped the tongue of his wheel house on his hand. I was in my perm shack and saw him struggling to get his small-ish wheel house hooked onto his wheeler. I go out to help him. The wheel house was very tongue heavy. Did I mention the ice was extremely slick? We get the house lifted to set it on a block of wood. I slip on the ice and drop the tongue. It was too much for one man to lift, so he ended up with a smashed hand. I wouldn't be surprised if he had a couple of broken fingers out of that deal.

    Fish Trap Guide Question

    Bench seats when folded down will be a lot lower compared to boat style seats when transporting the shanty. I have seen some shanties with boat seats that barely fit into a pickup with a topper on it. Something to think about....

    Look at this pig caught on Waconia

    People aren't going to spread out on Lake Waconia or any other lake for that matter. They are going to go where the house, trucks, sleds are to catch fish. Thus, in theory the OP will be fishing in shanty town this weekend. Hence...people...

    New to Walleye fishing HELP father inlaw

    Just get the FIL drunk. I recommend taking the shotski with. Fill yours with beer or watered down booze and make him drink full strength Jack Daniels. This strategy should give you the advantage on the ice.

    Google people. Urban Dictionary has a few definitions, but that site doesn't support the family values promoted by FM.
