    I really enjoy ice fishing... probably more than any other fishing, actually. Problem is, here in Ohio ice formation is unpredictable and usually short-lived, so my seasons are usually way too short. We've got some good ice forming right now, though. Won't be long!

    I guess being from the South, I've never figured out how anyone can "catch" ice?
    "Force fetch isn't about retrieving as much as it is conditioning a dog to handle pressure, in a very controlled environment. It's about putting a dog in the position of having to figure out how to turn off pressure by finding the correct response. This translates into numerous areas in training." Sharon Potter.

    They're too good (IMO) to batter and fry.

    Yes, do the butter and olive oil, blackened, lemon & pepper.......

    Lots of tricks with those cheeks. Usually envolves a Griswold cast iron skillet too...

    a small cast iron and a stick of butter was always brung. often the cheeks never made it off the ice. we would jig smelt in the shanty with slabs and fresh eyes and then put some on tip ups for real fish. often could end up with stealhead and walleye and late trout, and smelt. never much of a pearch fan myself but the deep fried tails crunchy like tater chips are nice.

    my Mothers youngest sisters second husband is from Mississippi. We took him once. later he told his relations on the telephone he went jerking perch. he did not catch a thing. walking off of the ice I threw a fish at him so he could say he caught one.

    Angie,
    Ever find anybody outside the MN/WI area that knows how to play sheepshead? Great card game, but few know how to play?

    Nope! Nobody knows what I'm talking about!!! I think it's pretty much a regional thing.
