Plank etequette
« on: Feb 12, 2018, 01:48 PM »
Just wondering what folks like to do with their planks while fishing...

Do you leave it while you fish or bring it with you once youíre on the ice. Gonna have to plank out tomorrow and worried people will use it to get out but get stranded once I leave and take it with me.
Kind of a nit picky question but curious how yíall handle that one.

Take it with.  I dont want to be liable for someone misusing my plank technology.  Ive gotten wet when the plank owner left with said plank.

You mite want to keep it with you in case some one take it on you than you will be the one stranded. You can all ways let some one use it if need be. Bring some rope too you never know. P.S. good fishing etiquette is awesome. thank for thinking of others

Take on the ice with you, thatís what I do. If they are not prepared to fish that body of water, knowing that the edge might be iffy, they better bring their own. What if u leave it there and someone takes it while u are fishing, seen it happen, wonít happen to me though !!

My sons and friends (witnesses) got read the riot act by an over-zealous EPO in the berkshires two years ago.
Told us we were endangering other people by allowing access to an otherwise unsafe body of water.
We were stunned by his loud and rude attitude but held our tongues.

Needless to say we left the area (as commanded) and took our "plank" with us; stranding him and possibly many others on the ice.

Not your normal EPO for sure.

Lol, sounds like he didnít think that one through all the way :)
Iíd have been tempted to sit in the parking lot and watch him wade back to shore.

Thanks for the responses.. Iíll deffinitely be bringing it out with me... didnít even think about someone swiping it on me.. that would suck.

Depends where I am fishing and how far away from the access point Im going to be, how crowded, what day of the week, probably not on a weekend.
Give me ICE or give me DEATH!

Iím curious what you mean by plank technology... if it was anyone else Iíd dismiss it as poetic exaggeration but Iíve read enough of your posts to think that you might actually be using cutting edge plank technology...  whatcha rockin for a board ??

Just a play on words...I rock the same things as everyone else....boards, sticks, logs, rocks, waders, whatever I need to get on. 

I will agree with others...plank season is a good way to get wet so it pays to have that second set of clothes...

I was half expecting you to describe a carbon fiber something with flotation and optional propulsion system.
(Which would pretty much make it a boat ?)

If my GF found out I was using waders to get on the ice Iím not sure Iíd be aloud out anymore... let alone needing to change into dry clothes after.

One time I brought a plank and someone else asked if they could access the ice by using it. Of course I said yes.
Second time I brought my plank but angler that was there before me had brought an extendable ladder and said I could use it as long as he was there.
Needless to say I left when he did.

I say if you are within sight, you could leave it, but keep an eye on it.
If you plan on traveling out of sight or far enough away, bring it.

Not saying to be a jerk, but if someone wants to get out on the ice they should consider how they were planning on the ice...

The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.

If there one there I dont touch it. If its not positioned how i want, I put down my own. If I put down my own, I am usually within sight and leave it there...if I was out of site I would take it..Ive dumped all my gear in pontoosuc trying to cross the gap of open water at shore...was a long wet ride home

All I can say is if I bring a plank and I see someone trying to taking it, they better hope I don't catch them...because the water IS cold!!!

Taking someone's plank is one of the lowest things an angler can do to another. My plank is legendary lol , covered in carpet for non slip access. If I ever saw someone try to take it, the ultra light chisel might become a spear !

That might become a Winter Olympic sport. Chisel throwing. I like it.

I agree, I have used that plank personally and it is very nice. but would never even think of taking someone else's . I allways carry my own , and take it when I leave.
