Who is that character? smile.gif

It was a fun day Darren and you guys are right about the thin ice, this area can be open water for most of the winter unless it gets really cold. The week before, it was about 2-4" in that spot with lots of variation in thickness.

I hear ya, but I'm not sure I could even find it again if I tried grin.gif

I was sitting on a flatbead trailer facing backwards and curled up like a Husky at bedtime. When the ride was over, I had no clue where we were.

Not only that but it's a real safety issue with that ice there, I'm glad I had a good guide.

Yeah, that area is definitely not an area to underestimate or mess around in. Last year I was fishing near there and was picking up eagle feathers next to my fish house. That usually indicates open water, right? I also found a spot near the meth hole earlier this year where the ice varied from 4-12 inches within ten feet. crazy.gif

Thanks for sharing...I know you said you were using cutbait.....and deadsticking...but would you mind how you go about locating and catching cats through the ice? I live near a lake that is full of channels and no one targets them in the winter...i'd like to try with a little advice!

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
