ice fishing one time, but I remebered that I had a cousin, years ago, that went and caught 200 lbs of ice. He and his wife both drowned when they tried to fry it up! I will stick to warm water fishing, thank you very much.

Hey Jason .. Fox River.. where ?

Not sure if Jason is talking about the same location, but the same type of action is found just below the damn at De pere. Which is really part of Green Bay. There is a park, it's name is voyager. it's located about 400 yards below the damn(east side of river). People walk out from there and set up. obviously evenings and mornings are best. As with all fishing, it's the very subtle fine tuning of your presentation that reaps the rewards. Talk to Jason as to EXACTLY what he is doing or you may waste your time. Good luck and thank God for the polluted water or they'd all have been plucked out already. TRANSLATION........don't expect to take any home for the fry pan. They are not fit for human consumption. ...DAM

I've been twitching for years and I don't even eat stuff out of the Bay much less the river, Hahaha. PS. I have (HAD) a really sweet nissan maxima. It wasn't new by any stretch but in mint condition and a super car. I opted to only insure it with collision as it was over 5 years old and my second vehicle. WELL, I piled it into a state HWY fence in a storm the other day and now she's toast. I played russian roulette with insuring that vehicle and that's one thing but, playing russian roulette with your health is quite another. Hope it works for you though and.. did you tell Buck your secrets on success? The best hole I know of is just north of the park and today I crossed the river and saw one or two portables out there.

Marc, Haven't been out fishing lately but your insurance story caught my ear as that's my occupation.If you insured your Maxima with "collision" only you should be fine as the damage would be covered up to the marketable value of your Maxima. If you insured it with only "comprehensive" then the russian roulette bullet hit you square in the head. Too bad about your car. I hope you didn't get hurt in the process. I don't know if your State has "limited collision" but that's the coverage I recommend when a customer is on the fence between insuring their vehicle full coverage or PLPD. Limited collision will do everything standard or broad form will do only you have to be Not at fault. If you are at fault, it doesn't pay anything. Usually, though, from a claims perspective, sliding on ice, snow, etc. and hitting something is deemed at fault. Ask your insurance agent about limited collision and also ask him how many miles your second vehicle (the new Porsche you get), is rated for annually. A vehicle, at least here in Michigan, that is driven LESS than 7,500 miles a year gets a pretty decent rate drop. Good luck, stay safe.

just went out tonight. Got a couple 22 inch wall-dogs, both after dark. Built a nice fire out there and had a great time. We have about 8 inches up here in wisconsin.

Thank you very much Brian...

unfortunately I miss stated and it was "comprehensive" I had.No injuries, but one heck of a ride. Ever aim backwards in a car going 60? WOOO HOOO! The information you gave me is invaluable. Especially at this time when I will need to replace. PORCHE? Hahaha. Closest thing I ever got to a porche was one of those old VW microbuss'. They had porche built engines, hahaha! That 7'500 mile plan sounds interesting as I work at home. I will definetly check this all out. Thanks again. PS. Never thought I'd learn so much great stuff about so many things ,through a taxidermy forum.

Your welcome Marc

Marc, Glad to help. Hey, I get some some pretty good tips from you guys, it's nice to be able to return the favor. I even learned that Cecil's dog could manufacture a good "brown" replica. Too funny. Anytime you need some advice, and that goes for anyone reading this, shoot me an insurance question. Use my e-mail if need be. Good luck.
