Funny/clever (ice)fishing sayings...

Recommended Posts

I always like it when you are out on the ice and someone will drive up to you and ask "How thick is the ice".

I reply with "I'm not sure how thick it is where your truck is but it is only 4" where I am at".

The one I like to say when the panfish are going good " Who is the best fisherman here and why am I!! "

If someone in the house says "oh, I gotta nice one on" someone else will always say "don't horse em" it's a tradition in our house.

My Dad will always say as we are sitting there. What do you think the poor people are doing right now.

We do that too...regardless if we are ice fishing, open water fishing, or just relaxing!

Gotta remember that one...

One we use when a large fish is caught (big Walter or Pike): "this is NOT a crappie!"

I like it when there has been no bites or it's a real tough situation and you can't get a bite to save your life and it doesn't matter if there is 2 or 10 people in the house or boat. I look over and say! I can understand why you guys are not getting any but I can't figure out why I am not. Or after all day in the house when you get to shore to leave and somebody asked's how did it go out there Etc. I will say IT WASN'T THE WORST DAY FISHING BUT JUST LIKE IT.

Classic responses to the classic "Where there biting?":

"Straight out from shore"

"Right in the lip."

"Oh...Between 2 and 200 feet deep"

If unsure of conditions on early Ice, always go with guys bigger than you. Let them go on first........

The one ICEPRO said I need to keep in mind, last year a person had me almost leak my shorts when he drove all the way out to me on no more than 8" of ice, it was a small truck, but my face must have made him nervous enough to leave, in a hurry!

I have nothing, just enjoying what I am reading.

My grandfather always told me that you had to place peas around your hole.

When the fish comes up to take a pea whistle , you hit him over the head.

My Grandpa said the same thing except he would say: When he comes up to take a pea you hit him in the icehole.

when people you don't know get a little too snoopy.

Where did you catch them? Under the ice!

What did you catch them on? Their lips!

When are they biting? When my bobber goes down!

What lake did you get them at? Lake Nunya(Nunya business)or Lake Notcho(Notcho business).

When some opens your door and stick their head in and asks"what ya catchin"? A cold draft from the open door!

When some one new fishing with me asks"where do you go to the bathroom out here"? In my diaper! You need one?

I use to fish with a old boy that every time ya caught a fish he would say "Break his neck break his freaking neck." Miss that old boy. RIP Denny.

Now I had heard that when you go ice fishing you had to drill 2 holes, but 1 was not all the way through the ice. On the hole drilled all the way through, you lined the rim with peas, on the other hole, you lined the bottom of it with ashes. As ANY icefisherman knows, winter fish LOVE canned peas. So when a fish comes up to take a pea, you kick 'em in the ash hole.

Meet a guy who had copy righted and was going to start selling T-shirts that read:

Hard Water

Hard Liquor

Hard Core

If you can't get it hard,

Leave it alone!

Not sure if someone said this or not, or where it even came from, but I always like to say:

"The KEY rig in the GEM spot will ALWAYS produce"
