    What do you sit on?

    i cut a piece of plywood and screwed two 2x2's to the underneath, and adjusted to fit snug in my bucket. i also stainded and clear coated the top. it acts as my chair, table, and cover for my bucket. its easy to carry with me, and looks nice. i have a 6 gallon bucket so its taller and all the poles sit in with the table on top.

    Snow

    Really 4-5 already good inches doesnt meen a thing. in the metro forum there is a silver lake tread. i was out sunday with 4 inches, this morning a guy went out. said two spud bar hits went through, and with the weight of the snow the water started flowing up and out. right befor thanksgiving it looked like it was going to be a great yaer. now im not to sure.

    aquarium idea

    i have all the equipment, so i was wondering with the price of shiners during the winter, if anyone kept and bread minnows. i was in blue ribbon bait on century and they have a real nice set-up. there's nothing better that watching your fish investment double and than triple. dan

    Funny/Interesting Ice Fishing Stories

    I got one that was funny for others but not me. we were fishing a contest on forest. at the last minute a kid on a 4wheeler runs over my tip up, rushing to enter a fish. All that was left of my tip up was two inches of the base. I lost my favorite rig and all. this kid ends up winning the contest with a $500 prize. drives past me and says sorry about that man. doesn't even offer to pay a couple of bucks for the damage.

    Homemade Stuff

    my dad made a real nice wooden box that fits snug in the hole cut outs of the hardside. he just drops it in so it sits a couple of feet off the floor. keeps all the auger shavings in the hole and not the house floor.

    Hand held sonar

    How reliable is the fish alarm? im pretty sure thats going to be under the tree 12/25 this year. im more interested in the depth finder, but if the fish alarm is fair thats a bonus for me.

    Ice Well

    I have not used the ice well, but my dad made one on his own. we drill a hole on the back side of the perm house. tie the ice well to a screw on the house then drop it down the hole and cover it back up. from the inside you feed a hook down and bring it up. it keeps bait fresh all winter long. darn good investment for buying bait in bulk to save money.

    Native Fish Aquariums

    i myself have a 55 gallon saltwater aquarium. i am really considering switching over to a freshwater. i want to maybe breed minnows. minnows are basicly a part of the carp family. wich makes them easy to reproduce. and the price during winter i see nothing but benefits.

    Best winter boots you have found.....

    i cant remember the name but they are the cheap sorel brand at fleet farm. i do a paper route at night and have to run through deep snow often. without socks my feet do sweat but the liner obsorbes it qiute well. and my feet stay very warm. only paid like $30 - $40. ran all winter and icefishing, i should get one more season on these liners. at $30 a new pair is just fine by me.

    Lot of stuff stolen

    That is a great idea. keep a post at the top of the forum page, dedicated to identifing lost items. a quick reference to that page is the best way to make it work.
