Welcome Back Monte, I don't ice fish either. I keep telling myself every year that I'm going to try it but I never do. Its time to get warm now even though all day we have been having some pretty bad winter weather. Time for spring and winter decides to finally come. <><Mary><>

ok Del mayb i did not phrase that just right.
i do have fishing on the brain 24/7, but during the winter it is not at the front of the brain. now it is time to move it towards the front.

Hi Monte: Ice fishing would be fine if you could do it in 70 degree weather - so I will settle for the summer fishing. Which I was really getting excited about until last weekend! We now have more snow than we had all winter in our yard and Saturday it was really miserable here. So I guess I will just have to keep reading my In-Fisherman magazine for now and prodding the husband to get the new floor in the boat before he has to go back to work. Where are those sun gods?

more important than fishing open water?

    • try some bigger baits that rattle and glow or are really flashy. Something like a rippin rap,  chubby darter, clam time bomb or other big lures that make a lot of noise or have lots of beads or something that rattles to make noise. rip them high in the water until you call in fish and then jig less aggressively when fish come in closer.     Are you going to catch fish on them, maybe not but they will draw in fish to your area hopefully you can entice them to bite on your other rod. or once you call them in, switch to a smaller presentation.   the other thing is try to target different areas of the water column. not all walleyes feed right on the bottom. the more aggressive and bigger walleye might be right below the ice or suspended up from the bottom.
    • May be we can all chip in a buy you some. You can get qty 60 rings for $19.99 on-line!  😁   Bulk Canning Bands - Regular Mouth SKU: 1213830 In Stock  $19.99 Log in to add to your wishlist!

    • Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess. 
    • never injected prime rib, never seen the need when they are so good just seasoned on the outer layer...
    • Hoping for MN A season, just applied for WI E season. Our annual WI trip. I will pick up a season C also in the leftover tags hopefully if time allows.   NE archery only for the first couple weeks and SD .
