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

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
