    went down to my bench today to paint some jigs so while i was down there i did inventory.. still have a ton of jigs but will probally do some more up this year. dont understand why i need 300 ice jigs, but it makes the time pass and gives me something to do while waiting on the ice. found a banana jig on the bench that i must have painted after a few beers last year. it was a white jig, with green, orange and red poka-dots, kinda look like something you would see at the circus.

    You have to get creative Peon . :D I used to buy blank molds and make my own . Its alot easier if you have access to a milling machine , if not , im sure your mind can come up with something . :D

    its possible we could be on the ice in 14 short weeks. :)

    good luck with your jig making guys.... im sure that must be fun to catch a fish on a lure you made yourself.

    Here it is...coming to the end of my catfish tourneys...fall muskie fishing started with a BANG last weekend...and now your gonna get me itching for the ice,lol. To tell you the truth... I'm ready ;) !!!!!!!!!

    Guy's I'm not getting paid to advertise(although it would be nice to remember your brother-in-law when we are on the ice and he needs some ice jigs,lol), but Travis/Peon's ice jigs worked better than expected last ice season. I remember fishing a store bought jig on one pole and his on the other and it was catching double the gills. I finally switched both of them, and the only problem was I could'nt take them off quick enough to use two poles. I have a pic somewhere here, I'll try and find it!

    I have to admit, ice angling has really grown on me in the past few years. It's always fun being down here in southern Ohio, while you are ice-fishing there is an audience sitting in a nearby parking lot/pull off just waiting to watch you fall through,lol. We are on the southern edge for safe ice fishing and when it is here you better enjoy it.
