Love Your Auger!

Jiffy

With each passing day lately I am hearing more and more folks depressed about the winter, the snow, the cold, etc. I laugh. You cannot do anything about the weather.  If life gives you ice, you might as well go ice-fishing!  Frankly, I am loving this and hope it lasts!  If I quit ice-fishing the day before the spring shotgun turkey season opens, that would be perfect! My nephew called my attention to something that was circulating on the interwebs …

Take a Partner

PB230049

Always a good idea to take a partner fishing with you.  Sometimes you have to get creative. . . . I have never spent a second fishing for steelhead or salmon on the west coast and do not know that I ever will.  I have not spent a second fishing with a chicken or any other fowl; however, I can recall a couple of trips when I caught trout within view of turkeys.  I do appreciate good sticks who do …

Ice Fishing Pet Peeves

DSCN4479

My biggest pet peeve about ice fishing is not having safe ice! That is where I have been so far this winter.  I still have faith that we will spend at least some time fishing through holes this winter, and when we do, I am betting you can relate to one or more of these, Top 30 Ice Fishing Pet Peeves. Some of those are so true, some not so much, some funny, some not at all.  Unfortunately, I definitely …

Winter Bass Fishing

DSCN2887acrop

It’s Friday, time to lighten up.  I found this video, one of Fat Cat Newton’s, it was shot at the beginning of last year’s ice season, but the tips here will help going into this season. Yes, there was more to that video, if you want to see the rest of it, and more like it, if you want to waste some time this weekend, Fat Cat Newton. I watched that video and immediately thought of an interview I did …

Time to get Psyched!

SunsetIce2018

I am not going to tell you when we are going to have safe ice.  I learned a long time ago that you cannot point to a day on the calendar and say that will be when you can start ice fishing.  You have to check it, make sure it is safe, every time (topic of a lot of past blog posts, and will be for future posts). However, I do know this:  It is time to get ready, time …

Halloweeny 2018

DSCN2951a

Had a YouTube film I wanted to post today, an entertaining, humorous film with a dark twist at the end, perfect for Halloween.  What made it even better is it made a person think. . . .  Do we take our fishing too seriously? Gasp! Too seriously?  No way! On the other hand. . . . I take it real seriously, it is who I am, it is what I do. Just remember, it is supposed to be fun! I …

Tip Down!

bx010_3dd1_9

Unfortunately, I can still close my eyes and see those fish, one was one of the biggest bass I ever hooked, the other, one of the biggest walleyes.  I had fought them to the point of getting ready to put ’em in the net and then came that one last head shake.  In slow motion I can still see the fish facing me, mouths wide open, heads swinging back and forth, and my bait flying out. “There she was. . …

Pesky Beavers

RobberBeaver

You all know that I usually try to lighten things up for the weekend with my Friday blog posts.  Oftentimes, I will use some unbelievable headline that I have found on the interwebs.  This one is a couple of years old, but it is a doozy! Wisconsin Man’s Prosthetic Leg Found in Beaver Dam I am not going to copy and paste the entire story; if you want to read it, you can find it here on the Twin City’s …

How Many?

IMG_1515 (2)

Got a chuckle out of this new Hank Patterson video this week: Now I will be the first to admit that since I was a grade school kid I have kept a log of all of my fishing trips, species, numbers, sizes, etc., etc.  So yes, I have an idea of how many fish I and my partners have caught.  If you want data, well, I have a pointy-head and I’ve got data! But, you know it really is not …
