Outdoor Tales


I write about ice fishing every winter, but this winter seems earlier with this recent cold snap.
All over the internet last week was “I can’t wait” or “bring on the cold.”
One thing is for sure, with this early cold the small ponds and lakes will have fishable ice soon if they do not already.

I must admit that ice fishing is not my favorite way to fish. I do enjoy it, but I don’t schedule my entire week around walking or driving on the ice. (This year I might schedule to do some guiding however.)

To kick off another ice season, I plan to make the trip to the big ice show in St. Paul in a few weeks.
This show is the premier place to see what is new and learn how to use it. I don’t go for the new gadgets as much as I do to see the people.

Anybody who is anybody in ice fishing will be at the show working for their sponsors.
Over the years I have become friends with many of these guys and it is just a great opportunity to see everyone.

The dawn of ice fishing does seem to come with the desire for retail therapy for many people, myself included. It seems there is always the next great thing or new gadgets for ice fishing.
I have already been indulging myself in some of this retail therapy.

Mostly buying up more jigs that worked well last season and that became hard to get by mid-winter. I should add here that the red Northland UV Buckshot Rattle Spoon was just deadly for walleyes last winter.

My big winter purchase for this upcoming season was a new ice auger. My old one works just fine, but I needed to get something that weighs less. My shoulders seem to be wearing out with age and the old 37 pound Jiffy just tears the shoulders up after a few holes. I moved to a new auger that is smaller and lighter so hopefully the shoulders will hold up better this winter.

There seems to be a long ice season ahead of us this year and for those who enjoy the ice it will be another great year.
If you have never tried ice fishing give it a shot this year.

If you like ice fishing, take someone who has never been out before. Help them make a memory.

With my new profession, don’t be surprised if you run into me on the some Burke County area lakes this winter. There are adventures to be had and fish to be caught.

This winter get outside and make some memories.
