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!!!!

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!

    • If you can zoom in it's leaning up against my spear house, the red thing.
    • Only if Leech promises to keep his shirt on!
    • i've built/made about 8 of them.  took a piece of mild steel flat bar formed the chisled head by grinding the angle. had it hardened then took 1 1/2 or 2 inch pipe. cut out a slot for the flat bar fit it, welded it up. then took a plumbing end cap, steel, welded that to the pipe, then took a big washer, ground it to fit the end cap, welded it to end cap, then tied a rope to it.
    • Go to Leech's house, put on your apron and have an "artisan" bread baking party then. 😁
    • This white stuff is not bread!  😁
    • mine is about the same and it works!!!
    • Real decision is how much space is needed. Frabill is 6'6"x 6'6", Shappell is 7'6"x 7'6", Eskimo 949i ($289 Amazon & L&M free ship) is 8' x 8'. Find a spot in your home to tape off each hub size than cut 6ea paper circles to hole size and place on floor 3 people fishing. Mark door area on tape put all the gear the 3 people will use fishing, chairs, heater, rod case, coolers, minnow bucket tackle boxes coats  etc and place inside marked floor. You will soon answer the question of which one to buy. 
    • Depending how big you make it, I think the t handle will be awkward, prone to catching on stuff like your jacket, and it's unlikely to be held in a way that makes it useful.     I would put a hole or something for a wrist strap.  And if I was trying to be fancy I would give the upper part a coat of some gritty plasti-dip or a good wrap of hockey tape.
    • I agree Dave. But I hunt and fish and if I looked at it as a cost factor to gain!  Every dang one on this forum site knows the answer to that question! 😉   I just like to try stuff. One time I tapped the Maple trees in my back yard after spending a few bucks on taps and such. I made a block of maple sugar because I didn't know what the H I was doing, but it was Fun anyway!  🙂   Another time I made dried Sage smoke smudges like the Indians make, because some hippy dude at a old time Trapper rendezvous told me they help keep the misquotes away with out using spray. When our friends at the campground came over for a fire they asked if we were smoking Pot over here? 😅 This an't half of it but it's fun to try things. Makes life more interesting.
