What a fantastic day on the ice

Recommended Posts

Just had a wonderful day fishing with CPH. We met up at 7:00 am and had a fantastic breakfast at the curling club in Oshawa then headed out to lake X. I had trailered my ATV as I had a new 4 man SubZero I wanted to try and walking 3/4 of a mile hauling a sled load of gear is getting a little hard for this old man. CPH thought it was kind of neat when I un hooked the trailer from my SUV and hooked it up to the ATV, we loaded all our gear and away we went (yes Beans we had helmits LOL).

 

We got to the secret fishing hole, drilled a couple of holes and within minutes Steve had fish on. Wee fished for a bit and while it wasn't too cold we decided to try to set up the hut. It took us about 5 minutes to figure it all out and binge hut up. Then I lit my new Bear Cat heater up. we moved our gear inside, and continued fishing. We didn't count but there was plenty of action and we managed to land about 25 nice keepers and the action was fairly steady until about noon then Steve hooked a nice size pike which gave him one heck of a good fight but got off just short of the hole. That was the end of the pirch bite. We stayed until about 1:45 and decided to head back.

 

I have to tell you, that SubZero was wonderful, lots of head room, plenty of space for two guys and all their gear and that little heater kept it quite comfortable. I parked the ATV on one side and the trailer on the other to anchor it to, it wasn't going to go anywhere LOL.Packing up was a breeze, I would say it took us less than 2 minutes to drop it down and pack it up. In the future I would think we could set it up easily in less than 2 minutes now that we know how it all unfolds.

 

Anyway a wonderful day with a great friend, some fish to boot, what more can a man ask for.

 

Thanks again Steve for a fantastic day!

Glad to hear you fellas had a great day. We opted to stay close to home and hunt for crappie ( something to do with the son not getting home til 2 am :rolleyes: ) Less than stellar results. Highlight of the day was a 3lb smallie. He got off at the hole by lodging the hook in my hand. :blush:

Thx for a great day Cliff. For a walker, getting an ATV ride out AND fishing in a heated hut was like winning the lottery :thumbsup_anim:

 

As I said several times today..I was very impressed with the Sub Zero. Tons of room and very easy to set up. I love my flip style hut, but I'm thinking that the Sub Zero is the ticket when the time comes to get the Grandson out.

 

You know where I am when you wanna do that again.I hope Sue yourself and Andy enjoy a few good feeds of perch.

Sorry you never came up our way Bruce...would have been good to ice a few with you. Hope your hand is OK.

Ted you should have driven up the highway. The snow stopped south of Port Perry and everything was dry and clear the rest of the way. Pictures are for fish porn....mug shots not required.

    • Joke of the day.

      Another forum I'm on has this. Up to 300 pages. I don't get them all, some are lame, some cute and many hilarious. A great way to start a day with a good yoke. Do you have one? One of my faves. A guy goes out with the boys and gets hammered, he pisses his pants, again. He tells the guys, "My wife is going to kill me, I pissed myself, again!." His buddy says " No problem Pal. Put a 20 buck bill in your shirt pocket and tell your wife that some drunk pissed on you and gave you a 20 to co

    • Great day at Rice Lake

      Hey everyone  We had a great day at Rice lake,  walleye cooperated from the first light, and I was happy to see my buddy getting his first Rice lake walleyes. Wind was there from early morning,  but it only did good for the eyes as they love a little chop. By 11 am we had the limit.  Cheers! Gino

    • Super Walleye Day!

      Sometimes you just happen to hit one of those special days. Was out on Sunday with a buddy and we probably caught 25 walleye along with a number of incidental bass, muskie and crappie. Kept one of the smaller walleye for dinner.
