Bait bucket lid flying away, line that gets stuck on ice chunks around the hole as you are rewrapping it, Wind blowing snow over your holes and leaving a mushy cap of wet thick snow all around the area, things falling out of your sled on the way back off the lake, and buying large shiners that are really mediums.
Annoying Things that happen when ice fishing!
John13 knows annoying like I do. Watched big mama perch swim up to my waxie on a small rocker lure. She grabbed the waxy just short of the hook and shook her head like a bulldog tearing the bug free for an easy snack. The next drop, a small one rushed in inhaled the whole thing and I wrestled with the pliers to get it off the hook while the rest of the perch on the camera got bored and swam away. Very VERY annoying!
Walking down the walkway at Cold Springs and seeing all the trash, I did pick up a couple of cans, a plastic cup and fish line as I left last night.
What's annoying this winter is seeing lot's of nice panfish on my aqua-view camera just ignore my bait.
Yeah sometimes it seems like you just look at it wrong and boom instant rats nest always seems to happen when the bite is hot lol
Agree. How do I get a knot in new tip up line when the only open part of the line is at the end and it's fine?
Some of those knots defy the laws of physics.
"3. Tip up line getting tangled inside itself. Sometimes I wonder how these knots even happen!"
And if you ever wanted to tie those same knots on purpose you never could.
Cobar-That's unreal. I can only imagine....
Not wearing ice cleats on a very slick lake while walking back into gail force winds.
Sitting in my portable shanty today the wind flipped it on it's face and took me for a ride scattering my gear across the ice fishing was good though lol
