Thanks Winni I.C.E Series sponsors

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd throw up a couple pictures featuring some of FM's Pro Staff sporting Stone Legacy products at the Winni event.

Matt Breuer, tough enough to sit on:

Many thanks to Stone Legacy for giving away a bunch of gear at the Winni event. Their gear is functional, tough, and good looking. And, a big thank you to all the sponsors of the event. Without the sponsors, these events don't happen.

BTW - who won Stone Legacy gear? What do you think of it? I'm sure Stone Legacy would love to hear your feedback.

And, to everyone who didn't make the Winni event, you really should try your best to make the Mille Lacs event. The prizes the sponsors are chipping in are unrivaled by any event when you put it up against the entry fee ($10). I'm guessing 40% of the people walked away with something. That might even be a little low. Plus, it was just flat out a good time.

I know, another sponsor plug in the forums. But, hey. You folks should be proud that manufacturers of high quality gear want to be involved in FishingMinnesota.com. You're the people that make FM what it is. The sponsors make it possible.

I really enjoy the Jig Pole Cases by Stone Legacy. They are very durable and are great to have when out on the ice or traveling to and from the lake.

I thought I'd return the favor and post a pic of Ray with his gear:

I was able to carry all of my ice fishing gear in the Un-bucket and Un-bucket jr. I like the portability of these things, very nice.

Here's a pic of Matt Breuer, Brian Jones, and myself with our gear out at the ICE Series after a day of fishing and before we went out and hit the night bite:

Good Fishin,

Man, I thought everyone won something, it sure seemed like it! I won some "Snakors" from the Soderbloom company. I just picked up a portable the day before...And the Snakors are just what the doctor ordered! smile.gif Julie won a bunch of Shrimpos, Ratsos, and a mix of other lures. We got our $10 entry fee back in food and prizes.....AND THEN SOME!!! smile.gif

Yes, there were lots and lots of prizes!

I put Stone Legacy to the test on Winni, and I tell ya it definitely protected my most fragile equipment.

I put 42 miles on my ATV running around Winni, and I ventured into Cut Foot Sioux searching out some gills and crappies. I used the Un-Bucket and Un-Bucket Jr. and it made one fine backpack that held all of my smaller belongings (tackle boxes, GPS, headlamp, tip-ups, freezebees, 3 cans of pop, extra gloves, etc.). The Un-buckets were the right length when strapped onto my back while riding, and most of the weight rested on the seat of the ATV. It was very comfortable and everything inside was safe and secure.

I tried out a Freezebee on an old tip-up I had and with the high winds and cold it kept my holes from freezing and snow from blowing in the hole. I was impressed.

Off to LOW soon to really put the equipment to a test on snowmobiles!

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
