  1. Ha!!! My alter ego is still here!! Sign up another one for the "Old Handle" reunion!! And I'm not even a newbie!!
  2. Howdy Folks!!!! Talked to Uncle Grump the other day and found out you were looking for me.... I had to take some time to clear my head a bit. But.... I'M BACK!!!! And with a new name to match my new outlook on life. Look for me now as "Moose-Hunter". And if you're wondering, nope. Nothing big enough to shoot. Oh well... Gotta run, just wanted to check in and say Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!! Dan
  3. Howdy All... I recently found a piece of ice fishing gear from days gone by. Has anyone out there ever heard of "The Clipper"? It's a ice fisherman's minnow pail that's heated with a small oil lamp. The markings say that it was made by E.L. Walstedt & Co. in Minneapolis. If anyone has any info on this item or can direct me to someone that might, please drop me an email at the address below. Thanks......Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  4. I didn't make it out either. But I've been hearing shots from behind my place. About a dozen or so. Must be six guys unloading on the same bird!!! Can you say "SOUP"? How about it.... Any luck? Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  5. I use my Buddy to heat both the portable and my 8x8 hardside. GREAT heater!!!! Not too good in the wind, but great almost every where else. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  6. Hey Joe... In the two strokes..... No question in my mind: YAMAHA!!! I also agree with Grabs. Check out the Yamaha four strokers too. Smooth, quiet and clean. You'll be glad you did. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  7. Howdy All... Storing the boat is NOT an option this year and I'd like to make the run to Red Wing a few times. Do you have to do anything specisal to your boat motor to fish in very cold temps? Thanks......Dan ------------------ [email protected]

    Mounts

    There's a ton of them out there. Just search for "taxidermy" and I'm sure you'll find something. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  9. So I need one for my truck, if I'm sitting in there watching tip-ups? Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  10. PCG... Providing meatloaf was really available, I feel it would have to be a light "porkchop". You never know how many helpings you're going to have. Of either!!! Dan (burp) Anybody have some Tums? ------------------ [email protected]

    Hi Ruegs23... I may be able to help you out. Email me for more info. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  12. PCG & D-Man... Can you say "BRAIN FADE"? I completely forgot about that!! LOL!!!! That's what I should have had. Sign or no sign!!! It would have been a helluva lot better than what I ended up with. GOOD HUMOR!!!! Dan So who won the bet as to when I'd finally remember? As if THAT happened. Thanks for the "hint" D-Man!! ------------------ [email protected] [This message has been edited by Dan97 (edited 10-07-2002).]
  13. Just to have posted by experts... How do you hook the bait to the glow devil? Whole minnows, half minnows, minnow heads and wax worms.... Am I missing any? Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  14. Just wanted to bring this back up to the top. This rod/gear bag is a MUST HAVE item for all ice anglers. Follow Rick's link to find them here. I'm tellin' ya, these things are GREAT!!! Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  15. A while ago didn't someone offer a "stand" for the underwater cameras? This gizmo attaches to the camera in some way and holds it up off the bottom? My Vista does not have the push button rotation feature like the OVS cams do. Would this stand gizmo be a good idea or should I just worry about suspending it with the cable? Dan BTW.... What's all this I'm seeing about meatloaf? ------------------ [email protected]
  16. I talked to a buddy of mine a while back, and he said I should "tape a mini mag light to the camera". Is this really needed? Seems to me that the direct light would scare away anything that may be in the area. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  17. Thanks for all the great responses!!! As for the "try before you buy".... Good advice. But for the cost of a couple rentals, I picked up a used unit in GREAT condition. And a Vex is on the way. (As soon as my clients get a clue.) So deciding between the two won't have to happen in my case. I also agree with Vex before Cam as well. I just couldn't pass on the deal. Let's keep the thread going. There's a ton of good stuff here!!! Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  18. Howdy All... I just thought I'd start a thread to share your tips for the uses of underwater cameras. I've never used one for ice fishing before, this will be my first season, so all this is going to be new to me. So how do you use these things?

  19. Lac Seul is a good bet. Also a bit south of there is Lake Wabaskang. Same road as the resorts on Lac Seul, just not as far north. I've been going to that area for many years and have yet to be let down. Need details? Drop me an email. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  20. Hi Fisher Dave... I use to feel them same way you do towards the Citori. But it shoots so nice, I just can't put it down. Boats, blinds and in the field. She'll do it all. A bit of caution and post hunt clean-up, and she's good to go for round two, three, four........ Sure, she's got a couple bumps on her, but battle scars are pretty neat. My 1100 is a dedicated slug slinger. The rifled slug barrel is now pinned to the receiver as well as the scope base. The work that would have been required to make my gun shoot light loads was to open up the "gas passer" in the barrel. A quick and easy procedure. I stumbled on to this "custom" slug gun idea, and will never change it back to bird duties. It's THAT good. Thanks for the gunsmith idea, though. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  21. I said it before and I'll say it again.... This ones a no-brainer. When you get yours, you'll never understand how you went so long without one. This is a top notch product!!! Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  22. For me, there are three that I've used most often. An old 870 Express, an 1100 and a Citori. And now, all have there own special place. The 870 has been used for years for everything that flys. Both upland and waterfowl. No problems after years of faithful service. Not a single jam to it's record. The 1100 was a completely different story. No matter how I cleaned and lubed (or not) this gun, low brass shells were out of the question. No problem if all you use it for is hunting. But with light trap loads....no way. This guy was retired to deer hunting only duties and has been accurized to be a 100 yard tack driver. A very impressive deer gun to say the least. This leaves my good friend the Browning O/U. 28" barrels, Shoots anything up to 3" mags, light as a feather and swings as smooth as silk. Sure you only get two shots. But most times that's enough. Of the three, this one fit me right out of the box with no mods needed for a perfect fit. And I believe that the fit is the key. It doesn't really matter what gun you shoot, if it fits you well, you'll hit what you're pointing at. Oh yeah, my vote goes to my Citori Grade III. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  23. The main concerns I would have with the CO2 operated units are it's performance in COLD weather and will it hold me up when I'm wearing a couple tons of water soaked clothing. They seem kind of small to me. I like the idea of a PFD while ice angling alone but wearing a "normal" vest can be just too dern bulky. I always have a boat cushion with me while on the ice. For safety as well as comfort. And it's throwable, just in case. The flotation jacket (ie non-mechanical PFD) would be a GREAT thing to have, but spendy. Sounds as if the CO2 inflatables may be the way to go. Dan ------------------ [email protected]
  24. Howdy All... My neighbor just bought a new shotgun and he NEEDS TO PRACTICE!!! He has not hunted in a quite a while and wants to get back into it. And I won't take him out unless he puts in a bunch of range time. WITH ME!! I gotta see what I'm in for, right? If he were to pay the the 10, 15 or $20.00 per gun to shoot a few clays at the local ranges, he'd have to take out a "second" on his house to pay the amount of practice he really needs. Do you happen to know of anyplace (public) to go to dust a few clays in the southwest metro? Like some public land around maybe the Waconia area somewhere. I've got all the equipment (launchers and hand throwers) we just need a spot. If any of you have some land we could use, please join us! Clays are a gas. Thanks......Dan BTW.... Can you get kevlar vests for dogs? ------------------ [email protected]

    Howdy All... My neighbor just bought a new shotgun and refuses to pay the 10, 15 or even $20.00 per gun to shoot a few clays at the local ranges. Do you happen to know of anyplace (public) to go to dust a few in the southwest metro? Like around Waconia somewhere. Thanks for any info......Dan
