Boat Ramp Blocked!

MacBoatRampCrop2

Heard about some boat ramp problems they had over on the Suez Canal this week.  Sounds like they finally got that taken care of. I guess it is getting to be boat ramp season!  Supposed to be a nice weekend this weekend, never know what you might see: I have discovered that there are whole channels on YouTube with boat ramp comedy!  The one above was in Miami, so no, probably no one you know on there.  The funniest part …

Crazy, So What?

IceGuides

It is springtime in Nebraska.  If you are serious about fishing, you are going to be on the water during some abhorrent weather conditions.  Otherwise, well, otherwise you ain’t fishing enough: Of course, if you are on the water like you should be, then folks think you are crazy: I had a day like that already this spring: The best part about it?  No one else fishing! However, this gentleman came swimming by, literally right by my feet: He thought …

Amazing Technology

P2160034

I am still just playing around with a depth-finder in my ice hole.  However, I realize that fishing electronics have advanced by leaps in recent years.  It is amazing what you can see on some of the “tools” available right now: You never know what you will find looking down an ice hole! Have a great weekend everyone!  Stay warm!

Hang On!

If you have been ice-fishing for any amount of time, you probably have a story or three about an ice shack blowing away.  It goes something like this: If you want to watch another one follow this LINK . Of course those remind me of some stories. . . . I watched a couple of guys try to pop-up a shelter on the ice during one gale.  They spread it out on the ice and the skinny, little guy got …

Ice Propulsion

Some of you that fish ice tournaments may need a way to beat your competition to the hot hole. Or maybe you just want to get a jump on the weekend warriors? Could be you just need to beat your buddy to the tip-up? Well, I got an idea for you. . . . Notice “safety first”–make sure the ice is safe and wear your helmet. Not sure about the language in the subheadings, but I am guessing it says …

When They Do Not Take It Seriously

PB290014

I have blogged several times about how everyone needs a good net man, and a good photographer.  Unfortunately, some never take their responsibilities seriously.  What you can do about that? Most of us could tell horror stories.  I can remember one nice walleye, the only walleye of the day, that got knocked off by my net man. It is even worse when you are netting your own! When it happens, and it will,  there will be mental and emotional anguish.  …

Names

DSCN0584

I have a nephew who just had a baby.  Well, actually, you know his wife had the baby.  It is their first, a boy, they named him “Colter”.  I like it. It reminded me of this meme I stole from the interwebs: I always said I thought a good name for a boy would be “Remington Winchester”.  No one has listened to me. Actually, if I was going to name a boy after a fishing lure it might be “Rapala”.  …

Otters

ax204_190f_9

I have had several blogs about Nebraska mustelids (members of the weasel family).  Badgers and skunks have provided some entertaining encounters, and I often share a shoreline with a semi-aquatic mink while I am fishing.  Mink were one of my Gramps Roth’s favorite catches on his trap line, and they have been for me too. There is another semi-aquatic mustelid that I am still waiting to run into–otters. On a couple of occasions at Calamus Reservoir, I believe I saw …

It was just earlier this year that I learned that Big Foot’s name was Daryl! Good name. Now, I find out he also plays the sax! If that does not mellow you for the weekend, he has a whole YouTube channel, Saxsquatch! And, be sure to check out his website for all the CD’s, even old records and of course T-shirts! Many of you know that Sasquatch (and a variety of other wild creatures) guard some of my best fishing …
