When I think back to when I first started ice fishing "solo" I remember feeling like the underdog. Every time I went to the baitshop it was full of bearded guys wearing fur hats. I bought myself a fur hat and didn't let anyone tell me I couldn't keep up with the big guys. I started out ice fishing by driving my snowmobile to where a house had been for the weekend. I chopped the half frozen holes open because I didn't know how to use an auger. I carried the minnow bucket in my lap and had my infant son hang on to our make shift fishing poles. Now I have 2 Strikemaster augers and can punch a hole in no time! My minnows, vexilar, jig rods, and Mr. Heater all fit nicely in my fish trap. I had to learn by doing. If I can do it, so can you!

Hey, Eddy, anytime you and Wanda can get away for some big lake walleyes, give me a call! I'm sure baitboy would point us in the right direction!

Juls, Thanks for the kind words! I love the area I live in and all the things I can do here. Sharing that information with those who want to learn makes it all the better!

Good fishing!!

Lisa I will let you in on a inside secret.

Wanda, she is a 36" Walleye that is out there waiting for me, somewhere in the night.

Ahab had his "Moby Dick" the giant white whale, Eddy has his Wanda the "SUMO MAXI PIGGY WALLEYE", same passion and just about as impossible to find.

I don't plan on harpooning Wanda though! I will be happy with a photo.

ARR-DE-ARR-ARRR tharrr.... she blow's!!

Hi, Lisa. Backwater Eddy told me to drop in here and check it out. I'm not much for ice fishing... brrrrr... but we're planning a little excursion later on this month. I fish
the upstate New York area. I know exactly what you mean about, "The Look," I get it all
the time in the fishing section of department stores. It's gotta old so it's not intimidating anymore.

Ness,

I'm glad to hear there are other female anglers that have similar experiences!

If your fishing excursion brings you to the Mille Lacs area, let me know. ( Maybe we can raise a few eyebrows with our buckets full of fish!)

Question: Do you ice fish in your neck of the woods? If you do, what do you catch?

Hi, Lisa. I'm planning to get together with some friends from Pa. to do a little ice fishing the end of this month. I've only gone once and that was a long time ago. I'm looking forward to this excursion because cabin fever is fast setting in. We'll probably fish Canadarago Lake. I'll let you know how we make out

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
