High noon slab bite on URL

Recommended Posts

I have heard of a new techique that is working on URL for the afternoon lul on the slab bite. It seems that if you darken the hole they are biting better in the afternoon. The people I heard this from were using that hole cover made by the same company making that Revolution case. I just use carpet but they swear by the hole cover. They say it seals all the light out and keeps it from freezing. I was just wondering if anyone else has had success doing this. Every little bit helps when the bite slows.

Yes, Stone Legacy makes the "Freezebee" that covers the hole. http://www.stonelegacy.com/icefish.html

They work excellent on tip-ups and I have yet to freeze a tip-up in the hole with them.

I have tried jigging through the Freezebee and it does work to keep all the light from penetrating and spooking fish! Give it a try!

I have many times caught more fish with a hole that was 1/2 iced over. Thats when I switch to my 5" auger blade.

    • Interesting. I have used it in the past and have better results with nutty butter. SOn in law shot doezilla last week and the fat was unbelievable on her. I saved a few nice chunks and will put it out to see what happens. 
    • yep. first cut them off with the meat saw. Then cut again with hack saw. Then a little bit of filing. Takes a while but no mess.well, not much anyway. lol 
    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
