I went with my bud and my little ice doggy today and seen the prices so we decided to buy a big ticket item (GPS) for a slight discount then work him for the small stuff, so he gave me a free digatal batt charger for the vex, which I can use on any thing and he gave me a power cord for the cig lighter to gps for free also. then asked how much off the buzzstix with reels he take off 10.00 so we each got one, then on to the big dipper 3 bucks off , I cant tell ya the deal I got on a u/w camera when it was all said and done with I saved 200.00bucks on stuff iwas gonna get any way I just knew they didnt want to carry that stuff back to their store. the only bummer was I didnt have enough left to fill out my jig/lure wish list,the deals were there ya just gotta ask

This was the first time to the show for me and wife. Was dissappointed with the lady at the Vexlar booth. Didn't answer the questions politely and when I asked if there was any specials-a flat out "NO". Oh well. Maybe it is time to swithch to Marcum. Was impressed with the Illusion Trailer though. The wife said we had to buy it and we received a great deal-Thanks guys.
Couldn't find the Rockin Real or the Bio-Bate. I must have misunderstood. Thought they would be there by the Strikemaster booth. Hopefully the show will be better next year.

I didn't make it to the show this year, sounds like I didn't miss anything. Last year it was the same way.I thought it was because they were doing a show in Madison the weekend after. After seeing thies posts I guess not,because this year there was no fallowing show.
I went to the big Ice Adventures Sale. Same thing,no deals at all! Their sale prices were the same as the regular prices everywhere else.

Any of you guys who have been going to the ice show for a few years remember that one booth that sold the 3 piece knife sharpener set? The guy who worked that booth would take out a pocket knife and run it through the 3 sharpening tools and then proceed to fillet a piece of paper. Anyway, I was hoping to pick one up this year but I couldn't find the booth. Anyone know what happened to it? If not, any suggestions for fairly decent sharpener that doesn't cost too much?

    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
    • There are other houses on the pond, nobody has a dock though.  I don't think my neighbors would care, I kinda ran it by the guy on one side.  Because the county plat map has the pond divvied up between 8 different properties on the street, I would think that technically taking a kayak around the pond would be trespassing.  Nobody has complained though and during the winter there were skaters and people running their dogs all over it and nobody asked me for permission.  Not that I care at all.   I don't need a Hatfield / McCoy problem with the neighbors, but at the same time it's my property.  If I had a McMansion on Crystal Lake in Bville nobody could or would complain about me putting a dock out.  
    • For those that knew him.     Great Outdoors (Jim Maki) has passed away. From the various stories heard it seems he died suddenly on his boat dock. It sounds that he was just getting ready to go fishing.               Below is the info found in the Ely Echo.  Jim will be dearly missed among his friends. He had just recently closed the sale of his bait shop and was relieved to find he now some more time to do more fishing and other things.                                    THE ELY ECHO  Submitted by admin1 on Sun, 07/07/2019 - 18:47  James Robert Maki of Ely, 70, died on July 6, at his home on Burntside Lake. He was where he loved to be, doing what he loved, fishing.  Born on August 24, 1948 in Ely Minnesota, Jim was the son of Luella (Erickson) Maki and Robert William (Ropey) Maki. After graduating from Ely High School, Jim joined the Army serving from September 1967 until December 1970. He was in the 173rd Airborne Division,the 41st Battalion, working as an MP. He sustained injuries in Vietnam.  Returning to Ely after his military commitment, he married Rebecca (Becky) Richards on February 5, 1972. He and Becky raised their two children, Krista and Steven, at their home on Burntside Lake. Jim worked at US Steel’s Minntac Plant in Mountain Iron from1971 to 1975 and as a millwright for Inland Steel at the Minorca Plant in Virginia from 1976 until 2003, when he retired. Jim was a member of Steel Workers Local #1938 and Local #6115. Jim also owned and operated the Great Outdoors Bait and Tackle Shop onSheridan Street from 1985 until 2019.  An avid outdoorsman, Jim enjoyed hunting and fishing. In his younger years, he trapped his own bait, and went ricing with his wife and in-laws. He loved the Ely area and was the unofficial ‘mayor’ of Burntside Lake, being the voice of authority regarding fishing and ice conditions.  Jim, who was affectionately known as ‘Jaws’, had the gift of gab and was always up for conversation. He had a story about anybody you could name, fishing advice to share, and was willing to express his political opinion whether you asked or not. He could becleverly funny, entertaining his audiences with humorous tales from his extensive knowledge of Ely’s colorful past.  Above all, Jim was known for his heartfelt concern and interest in people. He devoted many hours coaching youth hockey and was always available to provide support for his friends, family, and even people he just met.  Jim was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Becky. He is survived by his daughter Krista (Shawn) Zurn and son Steven (Katie) Maki and grandchildren Cas Grant, Ayden Maki and Kylee Maki. He is also survived by his loving companion of 20 years, CeliaDomich.  A gathering to remember Jim will be held on July 27 at the Longbranch in Winton from noon to 3 p.m.  
    • Is this any other folks with houses on the pond or do you have the whole thing?  Not sure if they would complain or not if there are?  
    • The crib idea is a bit more than I am looking for.  I just want a 4' x 8' dock section on a little pond.  Trying to keep this around $500.   It is a curious point though.  The pond doesn't even show up as water on some maps even though it's been there forever.  Aerial photographs from the 40s show it in the middle of a cornfield.  The county plat map shows it as water and it shows I own a slice of it across to the other side, as opposed to the normal deal where your property line ends at the water.    Of course for property tax purposes, it's considered lakeshore.    
    • We recently embarked on a paddling, fishing and camping adventure on the Saint Croix River.. We put the Kayaks in at Interstate Park (MN) and our take out point was Marine on St. Croix (16.1 miles downstream). In between those launches we explored the river, back waters, caught multiple different species of fish, camped one night at a primitive site, got rained on and had a blast! I can't wait to get back out on that stretch of river. This video captures a good portion of our adventure.    
    • It didn’t sound like his pond was much of a “waterway” but I get your point.  There are actual dock guidelines/rules published by the DNR that should be referenced.  I’m pretty confident he’d be OK.
    • Nice win last night! That triple play really picked them up. Thought Rogers was going to let another 1 slip away & then he found his curve. Hope they can keep knocking them out of the park.
    • I wonder if down here in the cities, if you would have to get a permit to put in a crib dock since it more of a permanent structure in a water way?  
    • To all the, (2001 Yamaha 80 hp. 4 stroke on a 18.6 Lund ) guru"s out there. New thing with my motor.... If I take it out with 3 guys in it that weigh 250 each appx... I leave the boat landing and get it on plane and up to like 29-30 mph and 5200 rpm's. After awhile,,  like a 15 minute ride across the lake I go to a stop and the alarm goes off and I see like heat smoke coming out of the back of motor. If I put it in neutral and rev it up a couple times the smoke and alarm quits and it is good to go all day like trolling etc. I did put a new water pump and impeller in it last year also. I have not changed the thermostat in maybe 5 years either.  YEA I NKOW >>> Every couple hundred hours down here in the s.w. part of minnesota. Yes, the lakes are shallow and green and muddy all the time. I'm leaning towards the thermostat this weekend. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks guys and gal's.
