kind of off topic but it still has to do with fishing.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a research paper that I have to write, so I thought what beter topic is there then fishing.So I have narrowed my topic down to "what has been the result of historic developments in recreational/sport fishing?" so this would include everything from the development of the fishing pole to the development, of portables, sonars and GPS systems.So to get to the point I am looking for a good source that explains the history of fishing equipment. Thanks in advance and good luck fishing to all.

Hit up vex's webpage, if my memory is correct they have a history page on the evolution of their products.

Same with strikemaster.

I'd narrow it down to strictly ice fishing if I were you.

Were we started to were we are now us a very broad topic like mentioned above u would narrow it down to what your most passionate about. The revolution of electronics, auger's, GPS.... pick one and then dive in.

I did one for a speech in h.s about decoys and the teacher really learned something from me. smile

Go to the ice team forum and chat with Dave Genz I believe he will be able to answer any and all of your questions.

I would go with electronics. Although they have been around 60+ years, I think electronics tied in with GPS is the biggest evolution in fishing.

How far back you want to go? Maybe the biggest evolution in fishing was the invention of the hook probably in about 6000 BC. Advice about narrowing it down it sound.

"Advancement in ice fishing line since 1991"

"Study of barometric pressure and the impact of changes of more than 3% on open water fishing"

Stuff like that.

I assume this isn't for some 4 fourth grade English class.

thanks for the quick responses guys.First of all its a paper for my 12th grade H.S. english class just to clarify that. The paper is going to be ten pages long total so thats why I want to focus on a few things such as electronics, fishing line, tackle, and barometric pressure. Also I am going to narrow it down to ice fishing only.

    • Figured I would post me and my brothers build on here since this is where I got most of the information from. Thanks to lipripper for posting his builds and answering questions. I pretty much based the house off of his with a couple of my own tweaks. Im not sure how pictures are posted on this it’s looking like they will all be at the end of my post so maybe I’ll start with one post then keep adding to it so the pictures stay in some order ( I was bad at taking pictures so I probably missed some stuff) So here we go...   The frame is a Berkon 21’ with a 4’ V galvanized. We called berkon and the guy said they had one frame left and it was $700 cheaper than normal price since they were changing something for ice castle so we put money down to hold it then he called and said ice castle needed it but they were going to make us a new one (this was the start of our struggles). Which actually worked out nice since we could move some bracing around and move the hydraulic pump to a different spot. We had them move the back center brace so we could have 3 holes between our couches similar to papabear. We  thought about doing aluminum but the guy at berkon said the weight savings would only be about 700 lbs and I personally don’t like how aluminum seems to get brittle in the cold.  Prior to getting the frame I tried to order as much stuff as I could think of like others have said to do but since this was our first fish house I wasn’t 100% sure on everything. I used google sketch to layout the studs and the windows. Hoping everything would work out as planned. 
    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
