I think too many people are downloading it. I have a T1 connection here at work and will not stand for 3.87 K/sec dl speeds. I think where ever this video file is hosted from is getting hit hard right now. I'll try again later.
GET OFF THE INTERNET PEOPLE!!!! YOU ARE SLOWING IT DOWN FOR ME!!! smile.gif

Yeah it was pretty slow for me also and we have shotgun T1's here at work. I figued they probably have the HSOforum's bandwidth throttled so the downloads aren't slowing down the rest of the site.

Man that video rocked, talk about weak knees... VERY COOL!!!!

crappiemagnet the fish was a 47 incher. Probably about 28 lbs or so. Thanks for the comments guys we'll have more soon.

Nice ski, glad to see CPR done to it. What bait were you using? I was thinking about doing some ski fishing. The excitement would be unforgetable.

Hi Rick,
WOW what a fish! Could you please coach me a little on muskie through the ice. I am going to Crow on an anual trip next week, have always chased the lakers but not muskie. Can you give me a basic pattern and presentation you start with up there? Tackle?

I just showed that to my kids for a bedtime story...they thought it was about the coolest thing ever. They both thought it was going to be an eel pout though (the burbout has mysterious and legendary status in my house for some reason). Thanks guys!

WOW!!! I don't know if I would be brave or experienced enough to put my hand down that hole to grab it. I suppose they didn't want to gaf it if they were C&Ring.

Thanks for the great video. My boys were not into going fishing until they saw that. We are out the door in a few minutes.

What an amazing video, and fish! Really nice job landing that beauty.. I'm curious to know what it was caught on, and what sort of structure you were fishing. I've been trying to pull a muskie through the ice for some time now with no luck. Those videos are really fun to watch. Keep em' comin'!

Remember the videos you see shot are when we're targeting lakers. Muskie season up there closes in December. Even in season, this lake has a 54 inch minimum. It's a rare occurance to see a ski but you can see it's an unforgettable one. Use the utmost care wheen landing these beasts by slowly sliding your hand inside the gill cover and firmly grab the gill plate. Let the guy with the most experience land 'em. Don't use a gaff!

Ditto the bronzeback. Thanks for the feedback guys I'll never forget watching Patrick grab that fish and pull her out. The fish was returned in excellent shape about 30 seconds after the landing. That's the thing about skis they are a memory every time you see one caught!

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
