This. Matt McConaughy dropping a bare spoon under a tip up was just as bad.

sorry you got burned.

If I'm lending stuff out to a beginner, I  kinda expect it to be broken within the first use or two. That's why kids get the plain old 5 inch B&W ice graphing unit versus the old one that has GPS, custom maps and loaded waypoints.

Ice Fishing New Hampshire / Re: Navionics App
« Last post by Serveert on Jan 23, 2022, 10:59 PM »
I use navionics religiously but never considered that what I'm reading could be fake news, as I've never sounded it to confirm.  If I'm on a a two trap lake in nh I assume it's good info...if in Mass I usually know the structure from open water fishing.  Worth the $ in my opinion.

Jigging / Re: ice buildup on line

When conditions are right ice is going to freeze on your line. Lots of "ice free" gimmicks out there but never used or heard of anything that is 100% or lasts very long term. Just part of ice fishing.

last i was on lower twin was tuesday by the driving range and it had plenty of ice. Hard to say now but i would bet its plenty good still. The access was still firm when i was there but could be soft by now. good luck

Ice Fishing New Hampshire / Re: Furber Point South Wolfeboro Bay
« Last post by Serveert on Jan 23, 2022, 10:36 PM »
Hey wizbang.  Can give you some info and advice.  I found a place near Furber Point, was there twice last year, once so far this year and three more trips planned.

Last year Friday, two guys for a quick two hours, no flags
Saturday, 7 guys we got everyone on a fish on a full day, 5 lakers, 2 daytime cusk
This past Saturday, Bruins and football and realized I was a girlything, too cold
Sunday, me the missus and two girls for 5 hours, zero flags
Monday, went from blizzard to sunny and felt like 50, zero flags.

My girls are 11 and 12 now and they (wo)man their own traps.  We just spent a weekend without a flag but had a lot of fun.  If you need flags it's a tough call, Winni can be mean.  We had ice out in front of us that looked liked Kosovo yet ice to the side that was glass and made for good "hole hockey" games.  Unlike a lot of guys who post here who I respect to the gills, I don't jig much....mostly a function of entertaining either the fam or groups of non fisherman friends all the time...so if that's your m/o you might have success there.  Look me up if you land there...we'll be up the first few days of Mass feb vaca.

Ive given things to friends, and friends have given things to me.. an unwritten man rule is you never sell something a friend has given you... Dunno if it would piss me off, but would definitely make me disappointed if the person did it and did not NEED the money

This is so true, If I remember right one of the statements I made was, and not a conditions do not  sell this, give it away or give it back  "  But to be truthful this is only a memory, not a fact"
