Well, wifey was nice, and let me go on my new found ice fishing trip. I must say, I got each "from her" for about as good a price as possible, and then some:

Jiffy Model 30 8" (used, but in good condition)

Otter II Med. Cabin (no seats yet, but very happy with)

a few tipups and used rods and lures

Drake 1/4 zip fleece

15,000,000 flashlight... heh...

...um, well...

Good Christmas wink.gif

First off, I need to state that I have the best wife in the world, and all of you single guys just better give up, because she's mine. wink.gif. This year Steph bought me a Lowrance LCX-25c for the boat. Oh, this was both of our Christmas gifts. grin.gif. Is it wrong that I am thinking about complaining that I didn't get a map chip to go with it? smirk.gif

Yes, very wrong but, it is acceptable to start groveling for it for Fathers Day!!! :-) Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Hiya -

I think my wife can give your Steph a run for her money... I got HER her own Marcum flasher, and she's extatic. She was tired of having to share mine all the time. I told her I was probably one of the few guys in the world that could get his wife a depth finder for X-mas and live smile.gif We also go his and hers portaqble weather radios...

We're going to go try the new Marcum today....our Chrstmas Day tradition is to drop the kids off at their aunt's house and go ice fishing together...

Happy Holidays to you all...

That sounds like a great tradition and a great gift idea for your wife.

I got a Devil's Lake chip for my GPS, some two way radios, some long johns that have the footloops in them for wearing with waders, and some other cool stuff.

Happy Holidays!

its really the thought that counts so im not sure if its even right to say i got absolutely nothign fishing related despite the fact that is all i have to show for 18 yrs of my life. the only thing even remotley close to fishing related items were 50 bucks bp gas card( to and from the lake) a pair of jeans( somehow mine always get blood, fish slime, guts ect on them)and i suppose a walmart gift card for 30 bucks could by somthing from their limited selection of outdoor gear....oh well as soon as my check come this week I am buying my fish trap and a heater crazy.gif

Mrs.Clause was so nice this year. Ended up with New Clam Voyager w/cover, Aqua-vu XL w/DVR, CJ&S lures asst, Ice Pod, and a new Beaver Dam tipup. Christmas comes at such a wonderful time. I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas with friends and family. Now it's time to get on the hardwater.

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
