Looking for a past thread - please help


Recommended Posts

Hi all...looking for some help here!! I dont know if anyone will remember or know what I am talking about - but here goes! A while back there was a thread here that discussed the fact that sometimes when northerns are released back down a ice-fishing hole they actually plunge head first into the bottom and remain there for awhile recovering. Someone even posted a "movie" I think from an aqua view that actually showed this. I was talking with my brother tonight while out ice-fishing and he thought I was crazy! I am absolutely sure I saw this posted on FM - and it may have been as far back as last year. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I would love to see the video if it is still around....many thanks for any help! Hoffer

I have been looking but no luck yet. The search function is a bit slow and the discussion often drifts from the topic. Those factors make it a little hard to find but I am looking.

I need someone who knows what the heck they are doing, I'm a fisherman not a computer guy. laugh.gif

Jon - thanks for helping. I tried the seacrh button too - but found too many "hits" to weed through...

Let me ask you - since you are a Muskie/Northern Pro....what is your take on the Northerns being released down a fishing hole...do you think that sometimes they do this diving to the the bottom thing...and in the process ruin your fishing for walleyes. I have heard that at LOW during the ice season - the guides tell you not to release the Northerns down the hole because it will ruin the walleye fishing for awhile....and that most guides dont let you use tipups for Pike - because they dont want any in the area - or if one is caught dont want it thrown back down the hole??? Any truth to any of this??

Someone on the ice fishing forum replied to your post there about this, they found a thread about released pike and their behaviors, but not the video. I looked as well, as work was not eventful today. Too many posts to swim thru though.

B420 seems to have a new toy, see his post on a pike video from earlier today. Can we put him to work for us and see if he can replicate this? grin.gif

Hoffer: I see you're from Maple Grove too. We should do a MG ice outing on one of the local lakes. I'm fairly well versed on the summer bass/ski lakes over here, but no so much on the hard water. I'll trade ya hard water tactics for my open water ones! I do have a couple good pike spots I found from my bass outings.

    • RV camping is a popular way of enjoying the great outdoors while still having the comfort and convenience of home. It's a lifestyle that many people are choosing, from full-time RVers to weekend warriors who use their RVs for occasional getaways. In this essay, we'll explore the pros and cons of RV camping lifestyle and how it can impact your life.   Pros of RV Camping Lifestyle Flexibility: One of the biggest advantages of RV camping is the flexibility it offers. You can go wherever you want, whenever you want. There's no need to worry about booking accommodation or sticking to a schedule. You can change your plans on the fly and explore new places without any restrictions.   Cost Savings: RV camping can be more cost-effective than other forms of travel or traditional home ownership. You don't have to pay for hotels or restaurants, and you can save on rent or mortgage payments. RVs can be a great way to travel without breaking the bank, especially if you're a full-time RVer.   Outdoor Adventure: RV camping is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors. You can explore national parks, forests, and other natural wonders. RVs allow you to camp in remote areas that you wouldn't be able to access with traditional vehicles or accommodations.   Social Connections: RV camping can be a great way to meet new people and make friends. You'll find communities of like-minded people in RV parks, and many RVers are eager to share their experiences and knowledge with others.   Cons of RV Camping Lifestyle   Maintenance: RVs require regular maintenance, which can be time-consuming and expensive. You'll need to perform routine tasks like checking the tires, changing the oil, and winterizing the RV to keep it in good condition.   Limited Space: While RVs can be quite spacious, they are still limited in terms of living space compared to a traditional home. This can be challenging for full-time RVers who are used to having more space.   Driving: Driving an RV can be intimidating, especially if you're new to it. RVs are larger than traditional vehicles, and they require more space to maneuver. This can be stressful for some people, especially in crowded areas or tight spaces.   Limited Amenities: RVs may not have all the amenities of a traditional home, such as a full-sized kitchen, washer and dryer, or bathtub. This can be a drawback for some people, especially those who are used to having these amenities at home.   How to Save Money Without Sacrificing Comfort of RV Camping   RV camping is a great way to experience the great outdoors while enjoying the comforts of home. However, the cost of an RV camping trip can quickly add up, and it can be challenging to stick to a budget. In this essay, we will explore tips on how to save money on an RV camping trip without sacrificing comfort.   Plan ahead: Planning ahead is essential when RV camping on a budget. Research campsite fees, fuel costs, and any other expenses associated with your trip. Make a budget and stick to it.   Choose budget-friendly campsites: There are plenty of budget-friendly campsites available that offer basic amenities, such as water and electricity hookups. National parks and state parks are great options for affordable camping. Some private campgrounds also offer lower rates than others, so do your research and find the best deals.   Cook your meals: One of the biggest expenses on an RV camping trip is eating out. Cooking your meals in your RV can save you a lot of money. Pack a cooler with food that can be easily cooked on a stove or grill. Consider meal planning ahead of time to make grocery shopping more efficient and cost-effective.   Use free amenities: Many campsites offer free amenities such as hiking trails, beaches, and playgrounds. Take advantage of these amenities and plan activities around them. Instead of paying for activities outside the campsite, use the free amenities offered.   Pack Efficiently: Space is limited in an RV, so pack efficiently. Make a list of everything you'll need and pack only what's necessary. When camping during winter, utilizing rechargeable hand warmers is advisable. These hand warmers come in various shapes and sizes, making them easy to carry around in a pocket or bag. Ocoopa provides excellent rechargeable hand warmers that also work as portable power banks, enabling you to charge other devices. These hand warmers come with various heat settings, allowing you to control the temperature to your preference.   Save on fuel: Fuel costs can be a significant expense on an RV camping trip. To save on fuel costs, plan your route ahead of time and choose the most fuel-efficient route. Keep your RV well-maintained, ensure tires are properly inflated, and avoid speeding, as these factors can impact fuel efficiency.   Reduce energy consumption: Energy costs can add up quickly when RV camping. Consider using LED lights, which are more energy-efficient than traditional bulbs. Use natural light during the day to avoid using lights. Also, unplug electronics when they are not in use to save on energy consumption. Rent instead of owning: If you only plan to go RV camping once or twice a year, consider renting an RV instead of owning one. Renting an RV can be a more affordable option than owning, as you only pay for the time you use the RV.
    • Speaking of birds. Here is a grouse that was out along the side of the driveway this afternoon. I am getting ready to go out and look for the northern nights. I missed them last night.
    • turkeys on the left..swans to the right.........sounds like a tune i heard a bunch of times!!!!!!!!😆
    • Mostly sunny for us but yah a few to the north.   Turkeys on the right and swans on the left though.  Just starting to pour in for the night.   Too bad the phone wants to focus on the foreground too much, even after touching the screen where I wanted it focused.  Just a nice night anyway.
    • yup same here, looking cloudy now
    • Hoping we can see a bit of em tonight.  We don’t get the alerts - just the pics from the night before.  If we don’t get tipped off, we miss out.  Early to bed, early to rise types.
    • Nice!   I started getting alerts on my phone early last night. I thought about driving north but passed on it because I needed to be up early this morning. Turns out I could have taken a 10 minute drive to Bde Maka Ska to see them. They were everywhere last night.
    • 👍 dont miss or you;ll stick that mailbox!!!!!😆   monday nigth i was driving back from St CLOUD at dusk, right by Rockville there were 6-7 deer walking 2 abreast down the grant in aid snowmobile that runs in the ditch!!!!! looked pretty cool. bet there plain tired of the deep snow!!!!!!
    • Out checking lake landings for some ice fishing and found a new Bow spot for next fall!  7 of them all in a line coming down a dirt road. And 3 more eating on a bare hill side. 
    • My daughter just texted and said they were awesome up in Alexandria. Cant see anything here in Arizona.
