Still pulling out perms?

Recommended Posts

I'm not a perm owner, but I was wondering how you perm owners feel about the last few winters?

We're already 6 or 7 weeks away from having to pull the perms off and we're just starting to get some good ice making weather.

Are you still planning on pulling them out this year or have you thrown in the towel on another hardwater season?

I pulled mine out last night. My son and I both spent the night in it. The fishing wasnt good, but the time we spent together was worth every penny I spent on the house.

There is nothing better than the 6 year old jumping out of the top bunk onto you at 3:45 AM to beat you to the rattle reel!!!!!!!!!! The smile on their face when the pull the fish out of the hole is priceless.

Mine is going out on Monday and I haven't decided if I'll leave it to stay or pull it back out with me when I leave to be put on another lake. I use mine in the summer for camping and during deer season for a bunk house. Never throw in the towel...though I know it's heavy as a tank and need lots of ice to pull it out...I won't risk my life to fish in it.

These winters are making the time I get mine out very short but I just can't let it go by as I have been doing it every year for 28 years. Mine will go out on Sunday.

Putting out our "family fish house" as my wife likes to call it Tomorrow. Good spot to keep the kids warm while we go scouting in portables.

For the record...I was willing to call it anything she wanted as long as she was willing to let me buy it.

My son and I pushed our wheel house out on Tuesday. With the colder weather i will be driving out by Wednesday, my next day off. We have used the house every day since Tuesday and someone will be in it every day until they have to be off the lake. It makes it easier when you live across from the lake.

    • I'd like to see how the Helix handles interference.   Interference was the reason I went from my Interphase Video to a flasher. Currently using HBird Ice 45 and MarCum LX5.
    • I put all the boats put away,  subsequently the rain stopped.  I'll take that and finish pulling the dock in.
    • Posting.  Cuz I can’t sleep worth a dump.  Gonna be a MEA yahoo for most the rest of the week.  I’ve heard good reports from the friends that are already out there. They took the whole week so I’m driving myself out Tuesday night.     Just getting the the back of the truck filled with dekes got me too revved up.  Gonna be hard packing anything else besides waders, layout blind, guns and shells!  Who needs food and more than one change of clothes for 5 days anyway?!
    • I was ALMOST headed to Ely as well but opted to stick to “productive” pursuits at home, figuring I probably missed the October window this year.  That only lasted a day though before I headed west.   It looked really cool though.  Quiet too I bet.
    • I have a couple LX5s and have been very happy with them.  I had to get a second one for the wheelhouse since after I set it up for the wife, I usually go out hole hopping my original one.  Then come back with fish only cuz I was using the “cheat mobile”.    With the second one I was able to let her stare at it long enough to figure it out cuz apparently my teaching skills are sub par.  She normally wanted to have the camera down all the time but come dark, it’s kinda hard to see anything.     Who knew a wheelhouse and flasher would change her from a winter hibernator to an ice fishing addict.  She wants to go EVERY weekend now.     Anyone wanna buy a wheelhouse? 😉😂   Just kidding.... but I wish she’d wanna try for lakers every once in a while.
    • Was up in Ely over the weekend, darn windy and chilly Sat night.  You make it look so warm and fuzzy with the camp setup and fire. 😊
    • I have no doubt that by now there is something on the market that is better than my FL-20 and my FL-8 but I already own them and they work for me and I am long over the days where I have to have the latest and greatest fishing equipment.    Most of these gadgets, gizmos and lures are better at catching fishermen than fish.
    • My bird places nice with vexilars and doesn't get it too bad when there is a marcum in the next hole.   Keep my FL18 as a backup/loaner, it's been bulletproof.  But I haven't looked backed since I got an ice55 bird.
