Ice Gear for Sale / Shappelle Dx4000 fs/ft
« on: January 22, 2017, 03:16:11 PM »
For sale or trade shappelle dx4000, in great shape 2-3 years old used maybe 20 times. No rips or tears. Everything works as it should. This has the pop up runner kit on it too. Asking $300 or trade for flasher. May consider other trades, worst I can say is no. Added stock pics, can send pics if interested. Fishes 2 but could fit three, (plenty of room just holes are configured weird). I'm 6' tall and can stand up in it with ease.

Killdeer Reservoir / Draining
« on: December 14, 2016, 07:18:47 AM »
So I do t know how many of you have heard but I guess I will be the bearer of bad news. ODNR/army corps of engineers is draining the upground reservoir. Not completely but it is going to be pretty low. The dike had an other leak and they had to lower it down to prevent failure. What I do t get is the conflicting reports. Some say going to fix the dike, others say they aren't. Almost all reports say it will  not be refilled. From my understanding they didnt get it low enough so it still has some fishable water but after next year it won't be worth much. Already low enough you can walk a lot of the flats, and then pay ramp is unuseable.

What I would like to do is set up a get together for the guys who fish this lake and let's see what we can catch. It may be the last chance we get to fish it before it's destroyed. What do you guys think?

Lake Erie / First timer
« on: February 23, 2015, 06:59:08 PM »
Ok guys, bought a snowmobile today so now I'm looking to get to the lake in the next week or so. More than likely will be on a Monday. That being said I need advice! Never fished thru the ice up there and don't know where to start. I have all the gear, I think. Lol prolly will pick up some more pimples and raps. Any specific colors? Any place to get bait close. Also I will prolly go out of Catawba or crane. Are there trails? How far do I need to go out? Anyone plan on fishing this coming Monday or the following Monday? I'd love to meet up with more experienced people my first few times out. Also does anyone target perch? I'd love to get on a school of some big jumbos! Thanks guys much appreciated!!

Ice Gear for Sale / Eskimo travler shanty
« on: January 31, 2015, 12:23:58 PM »
I have up for sale an Eskimo travler shanty. It has been used but still serves its purpose. Has a built in sled and sets up from that. Does not flip. Two cone tots for the poles are broke ( I use wire to tie them on and it works fine even in the hardest wind) but they make replacement clips thru Eskimo, and the front window has a small tear in the plastic. Other than that great shanty. Only reason Im getting ride of is I have upgraded. Fishes one angler very comfortably but I have fished 2 in it more than once, each using 2 rods. Sets up in under 5 mins. First $100 takes it local pickup only. I live just north of Marysville. For some reason it's not letting me post pics. I will try again later.

General Discussion / Vex help please!!!!!
« on: January 18, 2015, 04:53:19 PM »
Ok guys I have a vex fl-8se. I have had the unit 2-3 years never have had any problems withit. I bought it new. Was fishing yesterday and all was well fished for about 6 hrs and the unit just stopped reading!! I switched holes and it just stopped. I unhooked the ducer and hooked it back up. Unplug the battery and let it set for about 10 mins and tryed again still nothing. Switched out to my spare battery and got zip! I have no idea what is going on. I inspected the ducer cable and can't see any damage. It was extremely weird that it just quit on me. Have never had any issues. I tryed calling vex but they are closed on the weekend. I'm thinking the ducer went bad but idk, hope it's something simple bc a new ducer is about $100 that I don't really have. Any ideas?? Thansk in advance

Delaware Reservoir / Ice 2015
« on: January 09, 2015, 09:53:22 PM »
Checked ice in a couple spots, didn't really get to fish. Ice was anywhere from 3.5-5": I went a good 200 yards out in the one cove. All the way to the mouth and there is a good channel that meets the mouth of the cove ice was almost a uniform 5". I'm headed to Indian/kiser tomorrow but plan on hitting it sun. I still haven't figured out how to pattern the crappie but I do get a few and they are nice usually slam the big gills too! I post a report when I fish it. Oh on a side note take a shanty. Wind was crazy today!!!

General Discussion / Humminbird 587 ci dh do for ice??
« on: November 15, 2014, 03:41:06 PM »
Ok guys I have a question and hopefully someone can help me with this. I am wanting to convert my humminbird 587ci hd di off the boat for ice fishing. This wasn't possible until last year with a new software update. It costs about $150 or so but  I think I can off set the cost by selling my fl-8. If I do it I will have lake maps, gps, zoom and a better color pallet as well as a digital read out for depth. Does anyone know about this or has anyone done it? How does it work? Is it worth it or should I just stay with the fl-8? I have a marcum too that I like a little better than the fl-8, that way when fishing with someone we each have a flasher. Any info and input would be great thanks guys.

General Discussion / Finding crappie???
« on: January 28, 2014, 10:20:18 PM »
Does anyone have any tips for locating crappie this time of year? I've been fishing a lake for about a week and. Half and can't seem to locate the crappie. I'm hammering nice gills but no slabs. I know this lake had an abundant population of bi crappie but I just can't seem to find them. I'm going to scout a little more tomorrow. This lake is relatively shallow averaging 12 ft w a few spots over 20. No weeds and not whole lot of structure that I know of this time of year since it is a draw down lake. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
