Now What?

I know you get tired of my blogging about it, but as I look out the window today I feel compelled to say something about this again–ice safety.  I got a phone call from a guy this week; all he wanted to know was the best waters in his area to go ice-fishing.  The thought that the ice might not be safe had never even crossed his mind–we have had snow and cold again, and he was going ice-fishing.  I could …

It’s a Fish Eat Camera World

I have played with underwater cameras only a little bit on Nebraska waters.  In many cases I believe the clarity of our waters limits the usefulness of underwater cameras.  However, like with all technology, it keeps getting better and better and the new “micro” versions of these cameras intrigue me (Aqua-Vu Micro).  Take a look at this video and you will see what I mean. . . . That may just be a tease, because I am not sure how …

Get the Gaff–Out

When I initially wrote this blog post it looked like we were going to have a long and prosperous ice-fishing season.  Now, not so much. . . . However, this is something I still want to mention, something I want some ice anglers to think about; with some cold weather, you might be able to put this into practice yet this ice season.  If not, there is always next year. Gaffs are a tool that can be used to land …

Adventure Report, From the Water, New Year’s 2015

As I have said before, my “New Year” starts the first day I am on the ice.  The beginning of each new ice-fishing season is my “New Year’s Day”.  This year was a little unusual in that my “New Year’s Day” occurred on the actual New Year’s Day 2015.  There had been some ice-fishing in Nebraska clear back at Thanksgiving time, but all of that ice melted and we had to wait. Our first day on the ice, my son …

Resourceful

Ice anglers are a resourceful bunch.  There are way more and way better commercially-made products on the market now than ever before, but most of us still have to have at least some homemade “stuff” in our ice sleds.  Recently I saw this video on the internet and laughed out loud, this is taking it to a whole ‘nother level! The sound of an ice auger running is one of my favorite sounds! There is even a FaceBook page, Ice …

New Ice-Fishing Technique

I have a new ice-fishing technique I want to try out this winter.  It is a European technique. . . . Looks a little cold, and probably hard on the hands.  Oops, I just remembered hand-fishing is not allowed in Nebraska.  Oh well. Have a great weekend everyone!  “I wanna ice-fish, baby”!

Ice Fishing Clinics

Quick reminder, a handful of us hit the ice on Century Link Pond at Mahoney State Park yesterday, and this event is definitely ON! There was plenty of ice at Century Link, 7 inches yesterday and maybe more by now, so we should be good to go on Saturday.  Oh yeah, the fish were cooperating too! Plan to come out, plan to get on the ice, plan to fish, plan to learn and most of all, plan to have fun! …

Bonnie and Paul

A recent issue of In-Fisherman magazine had a story on the back page about fishing dogs.  Matter of fact, that story was written by my boss, so you all better read it. I have ice-fished with my boss’s dog, Lizzie.  She is everything described in the story.  She loves it so much when someone is catching fish, that when she hears the water splashing in your ice hole, she comes running right over to investigate.  When I say “investigate”, I mean …
