I can see the white hot coals of the smartfire already! The owls hootin up in the hardwoods and the sound of the Root River moving over the limestone. Can't wait to take that first step, take that first cast and fool that first Brown! Suave_anim.gif

I'm sure Sponge Bob will take good care of the kids while I'm gone! hihi.gif

WET NETS!

Bring it on! I allready bought a new ultralight rod to replace one that broke this year, and a nice new Cardnial 4 bearing reel that was marked down %25 for $30. Rear drag and an extra graphite spool. Abu's are nice. I was going to use it to replace a reel with a broken bail, but here I go back and find out that the super glue I applied now holds it together firmly.. it just needed more time to set. Oh well... I need an excuse to buy a fairly decent rod anyways... I've allways wanted to try out an Ugly Stick...

I'm daydreaming more frequently about the boat and 75 degree weather at work now... and I can just imagine what it's going to be like in a little over a month in the transition period... ugh! I hate this time of year!

I'm ready, only 4 weeks until the boat comes out of storage and goes in for a tune-up. I can't wait, I love to ice fish, but I haven't been able to do as much as I like. My daughter is on a competitive dance team and they perform all winter long, the state tournament is Feb 21 & 22 and she is done, she is a senior and next winter is mine. But back to the topic at hand, bring on spring!!!!

Ole

I too am itching to get on that water. I love ice fishing, but you can only drill so many holes each year before yourhead wants to explode. I've takin the liberty of getting a jump start by fishing a few culverts in the river, done good, but it just isn't the same with 20 sq yards of open water. I'm bouncin off the walls!

    • That is some great photography!
    • In late summer end of July and August when the water warms and the oxygen drops in the shallows. I have caught Eye's trolling deep diving raps, plugs behind dispy divers for suspended fish over 50-70 feet of water where the bait balls are. So, yes please don't follow us lost crazy people around out there! 🤪  😁
    • They call it 'No Man's Land' because nobody fishes it, unless they are lost, stupid or their locator is in simulation mode. That works for me because that's my comfort zone. Most people wouldn't believe the numbers of trophy fish I have caught in water that's over 50' deep. Recently I was out on a local lake trolling for walleyes in deep water with shallow and medium diving crankbaits, and I noticed 3 other boats that were avoiding the normal structure. Maybe their locators were broken or in demo mode, but for there to be 4 of us driving slowly around the open water, it seemed like more than a coincidence. I boated 4 eyes in 4 hours, with a smaller average size than I was hoping for. I am not looking for lakes, spots or secrets.... I am just curious if anybody else has noticed these 'fools' fishing water too deep for 'normal' fishing. Or maybe you have tried it a time or two, let me know what made you steer your boat away from the shoreline? Did it work out for you?  Is this style of fishing becoming more popular, or am I just paranoid?
    • Don't know yet if there are more.   
    • nope, they just like my bluebird houses! they got evicted again 2 nites ago!!!!!!!!! i learned a long time ago no millet. i only feed sunflower and safflower seed along with thistle!
    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
