Try to get ahold of Matt Johnson or read some of his past articles. He's pretty much the panfsih guru. But if ya can't this is what i would try.

Go with small jigs like Ratso's, Shrimpo's, Rat Finkee's, etc... Tip them with a waxie, Euro Larvae, or Gulp Maggots. Do you have a flasher, if so look for suspended fish, in the deeper basins. If not find a good weedline and it should produce some panfish for ya. Start fishin a foot or so off bottom, up to half way in the water column. The more active fish will generally be towards the top of the school.

Good luck, be safe and tell us how you do.

Nip...first, get there early and pick a spot away from the others. Drill maybe 5 holes in a row, then cut a spear hole in the middle, then drill 5 more holes, equally spaced.

Move all your gear off to one side. On the end hole of one side, lower down some of that vegetation on a string, but and this is important...instead of using the usual type of anchor, wire some plastic explosives to the bottom of the sting and attach to the remote detonator....do the same to the other end. Do ya see where I'm going with this?

Get WAAAAY back and set off the charges with your remote device. You will then be able to see in a hurry what kind of fish there are and then you can work on the presentation! Capeche? I hope I have been of some help? The extra holes you might ask? Thats just to see if the auger works....the fish should come flying out of the spear hole. You might want to check and see if this is legal? grin.gif

grin.gif Holler " FOR" , I don't wanna get hit.

Drop a minnow on a hook down one hole, and a waxie on another down another hole, fish for a while and if no luck try a different spot. There is no magic on a pond, find the fish and give them something they want and have fun. Most ponds have little to no structure to relate to so try the middle or deepest water first.

hey guys thanks for all the info. i just got back in and was having trouble finding any water more than 5 foot deep so i walked around the edge of the pond to the other end where there was 15 fow and decided to put the vex in and try out a jigging spoon that came on the used rod i had recently purchased. i put it down to about 1 foot off the bottom and had one fish check it out but didnt bite then right after that i saw a fish at 10 fow and raised it up to about 13, the fish saw it, hit it and i ended up catching it. this was my first fish ever caught through the ice for me grin.gif it was a 12'' large mouth bass. then i went and took my vex over to my little brothers hole and he ended up catching a blue gill. then i went over to my hole that i had caught the bass out of and put a marmooska jig on with a waxie and caught a real small blue gill. then my little brother took that pole and i put a pink #8 ratso on and ended up catching 4 more blue gills. and then the bite slowed down and we headed back home. i hope to get out tomorrow even though we are going to have a snow storm hit, it is just to fun to waste tomorrow sitting around the house. laugh.gif i think that i may end up going with my friend and his dad in their ice shack. but once again thanks for all the good info. it really helped.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
