A Lesson Learned...

Recommended Posts

Well, I was suppose to have my first ice fishing expedition this weekend but unfortunately, my friend from Pa. cancelled on me. This excursion was his idea. In the beginning, I have to admit I wasn't real keen on it but by the time this weekend rolled around, I was really looking forward to it.
Normally, if I was suppose to go fishing with someone and they didn't show, I would just go without them. But I've never done the ice fishing thing so I only bought a few bare essentials for the weekend. He said he'd be bringing his auger so I didn't need to get one. Well, when he cancelled on Saturday, I was pretty bummed. I cleaned the house from one end to the other (Hey, that's what I do when I'm bummmed, I clean.) The Mister saw that I wasn't very happy so he suggested that we go shopping today and buy Everything that we'll need to go ice fishing by ourselves so we did. Next weekend I get off, I'll still invite my friend to join us to ice fish but if he doesn't make it and has to cancel because of snow (like he did this time) we'll be able to go by ourselves. The moral of the story is don't rely on other people to make you happy. Do it yourself.

Good for you, Ness! I guarantee you will get tons of enjoyment out of your new toy. Getting yourself set up and finding fish is the only way to go, if you are ready.

Go get 'em!

    • dont look so puzzled, I was correcting the stuff rick posted on fm as per your request.
    • From the left or they buck you off
    • revenge... LOL     But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better?   But for almost $200 bones more for an Ice 7 than an FL18, not sure how much better.     
    • Hummingbird Ice 7.  Yes please fix anything you don't understand that may bug you! 😃
    • 3 years ago I fell for the FLX28 from a FL18 and while I like the quiet I miss the 18. The 28 has a couple advantages but it has so much worthless dump on it my 18 did everything I wanted in a flasher. I sold the 18 to a friend and there's no way he's selling it back. JMHO but that 18 was the best ever. Like others I had a chance to buy at a very low price but still question the decision. As much as I'm tired of these flasher/auger posts this one is actually more about features more than brand bashing. Also a smart post by Rick to get some traffic going. I think this is still the best ice site but wonder why so many disappeared. The rules have been relaxed too, I haven't been banned for 2 or 3 years now. My reputation has a plus sign on it!  Eyeguy, time for some underwater photography?
    • for a ice???  then instead of than??  want me to edit???  ;lol
    • I heard they work a little better on small targets. 😁 But for almost $200 bones more for a Ice 7 then a FL18 not sure how much better? 😮
    • youtube was down last night so wasnt able to upload video. Maybe I will get it done later today.   Here is an update on harvest:  
    • leech and others, i actually thought the same exact thing, the whole screen is used up with "history", trust me, I loved my marcum flasher and did not want to give into the 2D sonar; but after swapping it out of the boat from the summer use then using it all winter, I'm sold. Like getanet posted, you can still have the flasher screen with the helix so you dont have to use the 2d sonar view. hence my argument, smartphone (with all of the gadgets, summer, winter, etc) vs flip phones (flasher only).   but I rarely use the flasher portion on my helix and opt to the 2d sonar (by the way with 2d you still get the flasher/rts window in real time) and it's history. you can adjust the size of your history and RTS window on the helix as well, and I've found to have the history useful at times as well, if you look away for instance and see a mark on the history screen, you can be fore-warned of a nearby fish, with a flasher, you get that quick flash and its gone.    it took me some coaxing just like when I didnt want to switch out of my reliable dependable flip phone to a fancy smartphone, but I'm a convert now, and I still bring my Marcum with
    • Sounds like a great trip, I'm more than a little jealous. Also a great bit of parenting.  Sounds like your son is well on his way to being a good man, well done.
