Auger Buddy Ice Auger Carrier
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
This is one of the coolest products I have seen on the market. It is a stand with skis that has a brace on it to hang a power auger off of. The auger sits in the brace and you push auger buddy just like you would push a lawn mower.

2008 Ice Fishing Season is Over for Me
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
It is March 25th here in New York and it is still colder than hell. It looks like we may have ice for at leat another two weeks. Still, I am done for the year as chasing smelt for the next couple of weeks will replace the desire to ice fish. Not matter how much you love it, enough is enough.

Caution on Spring Ice
Monday, March 10, 2008
It is always this time of year when long days of the sun beating down on the ice combined with rapidly changing weather can do a number on the ice. No matter how cold it gets at night you really have to be careful out there this time of year. A recent warm spell here in New York left a lot of slush on the ice. That slush rotted the ice in many places as it did not stay warm long enough to melt all of it. The ice was speckled with large black spots that a spud would go through with one strike. Now we have more snow on top of it and trying to navigate out there would be like walking through a mine field.

I have always kept that in the back of my mind and I am proud to say that he is correct. I just hope he is not 100% correct about the money part :)

The Importance of a Camera When Ice Fishing for Bluegills
Monday, March 03, 2008
I own Radio Shack on a sled. Believe me. I got as many wires and battery snaps laying around and I do lines and lures. After I started using electronics, I could not imagine fishing without them. I generally use my Vexilar when fishing deep water for perch and walleyes. The camera is reserved mainly for bluegills.

Walleyes Are Not Always on the Bottom
Monday, March 03, 2008
"You gotta be right on the bottom to catch walleyes", some would claim. Yet, I do not always find this to be the case. In fact, I find that they often hit better when you suspend your bait a few feet off the bottom. Would a walleye only take bait fish if it was on the bottom?
