Ice fishing tip: Use a spring bobber to detect light bites

Image
Perch can be amazingly subtle when they take your bait. I learned this the hard way after watching one of the guys in our ice fishing group take over an ice hole I just abandoned and start pulling perch out of it. That stung, but I learned a valuable lesson out of the deal. Spring bobbers attach to the end of your rod and react to very subtle bites. After I put one on the end of my ice fishing rod, I could see bites so subtle my ice fishing rod didn't move and I couldn't feel them through the rod. I hooked a couple fish that surely would have gotten away undetected. This an inexpensive addition to any ice fishing rod that will help you land more fish. I won't fish without one from now one.

The disconnect in public land policy in Idaho was on display last week.

The Idaho Legislature held a well-attended joint Senate and House resource meeting to hear Utah lawmaker Ken Ivory make the case for western states to demand the federal government turnover the vast federal public land base. He held out the potential for the states to gain access to the mineral wealth beneath them and to dramatically increase the harvest of timber and other above-ground resources.
