    Saying goodbye

    Yes she was with me at the tournament in July
  2. Have not been on the forum in quite some time. Sometimes life just gets in the way. I come hear today to say goodbye to the third woman I met and became friends from this forum that has passed on. Seven of us met here, and shared a fun filled weekend at Appeldoorns on Mille Lacs. While staying with me last week Hope Goodman passed away in her sleep, she was only 47. I discovered this when I went to wake her up to go fishing. She has had health problems the last 6 years and wasn't able to drive anymore. I would drive down to the cities several times a year and bring her to my place in Grand Rapids Mn and we would go fish our guts out. She was a good friend and a riot to fish with, I am blessed to have many good memories of all our escapades. She is now an angel along with 2 other friends Teresa Zais and Tami Jensen. All three were a lot younger than me and is proof life isn't fair.

    Not sure if I will head back to Red Lake this weekend. Got a few lectures about going ice fishing alone at my age, people don't understand that I love fishing. I would rather go fishing than go shopping. Maybe it is a little dangerous for someone my age, but I do love an adventure. I will go back next week as I have to bring the Yetti home for the year. Then off to more ice fishing adventures with my friends from WiWomenFish. And only 6 more weeks till Devils Lake. Life is good. Not sure if I will head back to Red Lake this weekend.

    Spent 2 days on Red Lake, there wasn't much snow on the ice and I was trying to find a spot for the wheelhouse and I got the crap scared outta me. I drove over some hard packed snow, busted through and got stuck, when I got out to shovel I realized that my right front wheel had broken through the snow into about 6 inches of slush from the week before. I thought "Crap what now?". Some great young guys from 2 different wheelhouses came over to help me. I think they were shocked when they saw it was an old lady all by herself. They managed to pull me out with a monster diesel truck, I do have a 4x4 and I am learning real quick that they can get stuck too. I caught 6 walleyes Saturday night, missed 3 and only two on Sunday night, missed two bites Monday morning. Decided to head back home Monday morning and I am glad I did, the snow made visibility very poor. The nice thing about being retired is I can go back any day I want and stay as long as I want. Might go back on Thursday

    Humminbird Ice 55 problem

    Spent the weekend on Red Lake again, 12 feet of water and the locator still isn't working quite right. Haven't got my new transducer yet, the old one is reading the bottom and intermittently showing my lure/bait. I have to turn the gain all the way up, becoming a bit discouraged as I have had the unit since 2011 and haven't had problems with it in the past. Might be saving my pennies for a Vexilar for next year. I had the FL18 but sold it because anytime I was around a Marcum I was blown out of the water with interference. Gonna limp my way through the rest of the winter with the bird if a new transducer doesn't solve the problem. Thanks for all the suggestions, I have tried every one with not much luck.

    Humminbird Ice 55 problem

    I think I might have it figured out, I will know for sure tomorrow when I hit the lake again. I turned the unit on to listen for clicking, could faintly hear it. The Humminbird comes with clips so you can charge it while using it (see picture) I noticed they seemed loose when I connected them to the battery so I took them off and got a much better connection. I stuck the transducer in my bait bucket and it seems to be working now. But will still have to test it in the lake. I did also order an extra transducer to be on the safe side.

    Humminbird Ice 55 problem

    Was back up to Red Lake last weekend, tried the locator again. Still no go, different battery. The first time I used it and realised it didn't work I even put a depth bomb on my rattle wheel line, it didn't show up. It does show the bottom, but only a thin green line. The digital readout was all over the place, from 15 feet to 7, then to one, etc.

    Dismal time at Red Lake last weekend, not one walleye. I was very limited to moving around, I lost track of my extension for my ION (had it the week before) and I have been having some serious problems with my hands. It was all I could do to drill 2 holes. I have to skip Chequamegan bay this weekend but do plan to head back up to Red Lake tomorrow. New blades for the ION, and will have to buy another extension for the auger. Coming off the lake last Saturday was kinda scary, water everywhere and I could see all kinds of cracks in the ice.

    Heading back to Red Lake tomorrow, then Chequamegon bay next week. Turtle Flambeau Flowage in February, also doing the Battle on Bago last weekend in Feb. Then Ice Team University on Devils Lake in March, mostly local stuff in between. At 70 years old I don't think I am doing so bad, still drill all my own holes (just not as many) still crank my Yetti up and down by myself. And still try to captain as many trips as I can in the summer for Let's Go Fishing With Seniors.

    Humminbird Ice 55 problem

    Brand new battery, fully charged. I don't know anyone one close to me to borrow a transducer from to see if that's the problem.
  12. Whether anyone follows this forum or not I decided to do another post. I just spent the most awesome weekend with 38 women on Red Lake. One gal caught her first walleye ever, another caught a 22" walleye first time ice fishing, another caught her first northern through the ice 31 1/2" on light tackle. My Yetti personally had over 25 walleyes in three days and then the bite shut down. I always learn so much when fishing with this group, we have over 150 members and there is always sharing of knowledge, help, and fun. We even had an awesome fish fry on the ice Sunday.

    Humminbird Ice 55 problem

    I have an Ice 55 that is 5 years old, trip to Bowstring put the transducer down, it read the depth but my jig would not show up no matter what I tried. I called the company and they want $175 to look at it, that would include fixing whatever the problem is and the shipping back. If it is just a problem with the transducer I can get a new one for $70. Can't decide what to do, has anyone else had this problem? And I can't afford a vex or a marcum right now so that is not an option.

    Faucet problem

    Help! I am trying to replace my old faucet, live in a double wide mobile home. Crawled under the sink (which is not easy for an old broad) I have never seen a faucet like this, can't figure how this comes off. I have tools, and generally am pretty handy but this has me baffled.
