    2020/21 Frozen Fish Squeezing Extravaganza

    Post up your pictures and stories of frozen fish, shanties, tip ups and frozen lakes. Fabulous prizes will be awarded with extra points for images of: frostbite, vehicles plunged through ice, dogs & frozen fish, most fish in a day and biggest fish. Spilling a gin and tonic while fighting a dorado off Bimini in December is not ice fishing even if you had to wear a windbreaker.

    Not this season and no pictures unfortunately, but I accompanied one of my grandfathers on a successful northern pike spearing trip on a frozen lake. A large rectangle was cut in thick lake ice, a shanty was dragged over it that had a decent sized opening in the floor, a few yellow perch decoys were hung under the shanty and when pike came by grandpa would shove a spear at them. We got three pike and they all seemed huge to me.

    2020/21 Frozen Fish Squeezing Extravaganza

    ^^ I think Talisman is trolling me here *, because I am stuck in Wisconsin right now dealing with my 93 y/o moms health issues instead of slaying boilerplate and rocks with him in Big Sky.


    * pun intended



    Yesterday ice fishing stoke, next door neighbor caught a nice walleye.

    Lake Levinsky has some fine ice fishing.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    ^^ that is probably true. I have only fished it in the summer and it is full of small rainbows, 10-12 inchers. Those signs about thin ice are for Texans staying at the Lake Condo’s. I have seen a full grown bull moose out there and he did not break through.

    I have seen a few vehicles through the ice and never one with Texas plates. Yes, I am trolling those stuck in ice fishing meccas with a seasonal fishing contest that Skifishbum will have trouble winning. The prizes selected for this event are fabulous.

    AKPM needs to be in this thread. His ex-girlfriend could suck the guts out of a frozen fish.

    I’ve got a chainsaw, I’ll bet we could open up a big enough lane through the ice to flyfling some streamers for SFB to win this as well.

    The 2020 Frozen Fish Champion Squeezers have been selected: Harry gets first prize which is eight (8) pint cans of Kettle House Coffee Cold Smoke and Bob McC gets honorable mention which is an adjustable sash that states "I am a hudge ice fisherman". All prizes collectable in MT.

    The second half of the ice fishing season is still wide open.

    Mrs Snapt and the Setterdog really dig the hardwater. Good high pressure, shitty skiing, freezer filling fun. We've had a pretty darn good season so far.

    Snapt has set the bar high for the second half of the hardwater season. A nice shot of an F-150 poking through the ice could still make this a competition.
