Fished with Tank, Billy, Joe and Doug and found some fish, I caught quite a few males today which is fine by me. Billy had the hot hole and I believe he was done and twittling his thumbs by 11:30 a.m. Tank finished a littlwe while after in Billy's hole and finished and I stuck around to catch mine too. Doug stayed for a while and fished with me most of the morning. Joe stayed close to the access and didn't fair as well. Had a good breakfast with joe in Mohawk this morning and got to me Jim a local icer and I forgot the the other guys name that walked into the diner that you introduced me to Joe?

Anyhow enjoy the pics as we had to rifle through some smaller fish to max out but hey I' rather be catching then stroking. Waant to thank Dark Cloud for the assortment of freshly painted jigs especially the brown wink I thought I was gonna have a coronary when I went through the jig package with Jay on the phone. Your best work yet pal! smile

I'll call you if I'm in for Sturday but let's see how this weather shakes out. Walking was great out there very little snow and your trap glided nicely behind you, no creepers required. Another great ice adventure. Good job guys... Off to get Amanda a guinea pig, I'll check in later...

I had a great time with the weekday pirates laugh

Tank and Billy...thanks for showing me the real 'Darago!

Timmy, thanks for waiting at the parking area for me and heading me out in the right direction to find Perch Grounds!

I ended up with a nice bunch and the folks back at the restaurant drooled over the fresh fish I will be bringing home with me and not cooked at the Restaurant crazy

Timmy...that was a Summer Sausage,right? Man, was that good.

I will remember this day for a while...all things seemed to be right!

From my office windows it looked like a great day to be out there fellas. Sunday the ice was 4" out to the island from the boat launch and we got some nice big perch also. I was working large spoons for walleyes most of the day without much luck except for one that got away at the hole but I marked quite a few perch on the vexilar coming in and taking a look out to 40fow as we crossed the basin. Had to change up to the small stuff to get them to hit. We saw a fox cross the ice and a pair of bald eagles flying slowly by and low enough to get a great look at them which was a real treat grin

Nice pictures, I am curious about the heater in the pictures,it looks small and I don't think I ever saw one that small. I can't turn mine down enough and it gets to hot and wastes fuel so I keep turning it on and off, what kind is it?

It's a Coleman Focus 3, max heat 3,000 btu's. Light weight and I have used it a solid ten years. I wish I could find a replacement screen for it, thta's what usually goes on them. I can get a full day fishing out of a 1 lb. propane tank.

Actually if Kyle could post a pic of his new heater that thing is really nice.

Nice job on the perch guys. I spent the day at work rotating through calling all 4 of you, lol

Lester - Heres the heater I run called a Coleman SportCat. I love it in the one man trap. Not gonna roast ya out but it is always enough to keep the hole free and the gloves off. I know Billy has one and so does Timmy I believe. Plus she last a solid 15 hours on one tank of gas.

I have it in the bucket with the foam to make it more stable as it puts out enough heat to cook/ warm things up...


Sweet and Spicy Kielbasi on the ice... grin Better get some before Todd comes around whistle
