What now?

Postby LaRedneck » Thu Nov 16, 2006 1:23 am

SO now that season is pretty much over, what the plans for next season? Building any new blinds? Plan on puting something together for a couple of places I found. Any new boat projects? Tried something out this year and didn't work out so revamping the system? I love the snow and winter but being as I miss 90% of the hunting and fishing I wish this crap would hurry up and melt.

There is still fishing to be done. You just need a snow machine, ice auger, sled, wind shelter, stools, tip up poles,.......there has to be something else I am forgetting.

Well, you don't really need all of that if you ice fish the lakes on base or in town(s). I was thinking about doing it for the first time this year. Yes you heard me right, 24 years up here and I have not yet ice fished. I have helped run a trap line up the Chena river at -44 below, but never fished through the ice. I think the kid might find it very interesting as long as she can keep warm.

Yea, AK Ray, me too. Been poking around these woods for almost 34 years now and ice fished for the first time last winter. Went with a co-worker who had the whole set up; snow machine with a sled that unfolded into a really cool shelter, heater, ice auger, etc. Fished about four hours at -20 degrees and caught four nice lakers! Yum, Yum. They have to be my favorite tasting fresh water fish! This winter I'm going with another co-worker that dosn't use all that "luxury gear". He has the auger, then buys the cheap tip-ups from Wal Mart and augers in three angled holes to put up a wind shelter with alder branches and visquene. Says that its snug and warm and you can watch the tip ups. Sounds like fun to me! Let you know how it works out.
