Re: Anybody on the ice?

I don't have a lot of interest in catching beaver with the current prices but I would like to catch a few bass and bluegills through the ice...

Re: Anybody on the ice?

I'm running a few under ice beaver sets. I think we'll see some $50 beaver this year at the auctions, at least I hope so. A $35 average isn't bad, IMO, but it isn't high enough to make everyone a beaver trapper.

Re: Anybody on the ice?

Waiting on a nuisance beaver job, kinda hoping it comes through while the pond is still frozen over. I'd like the experience. I just caught some muskrats through the ice, a first for me. Catching them wasn't hard, but they were frozen solid in the ice and had to be chopped out.

Waiting for thaw. I hate being on the ice since the time I was under it. LOL

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.

Re: Anybody on the ice?

I hope your right pawsonpan. Trapping flats through the ice is straight work and a pain in the neck. Hope we can open a few "windows" of opportunity and stack some brown gold as well. I got a limit to fill, lol.

Re: Anybody on the ice?

I've been on the ice since day 1. Little tricky a few times with him Navy resins and the ice shifting and dropping. I've been doing well. Got my first ever double, it was a top/bottom CONI rig. Took my 28 lb cat off a beaver dam on beaver meat. Snared a 47 lbr. My axe fell through my snare hole 2 days ago. I just pulled everything so I can get back at them when it thaws andake some castor mounds. Anyone that knows of any dams but doesn't trap them within an hour of Lycoming county, I'll gladly take the info. I'm jealous of you Bradford county guys!

Yes beaver are a lot of work but to me the most fun.

Re: Anybody on the ice?



Today's catch. I just have two colonys set up.
I like trapping open water too. But, I don't like to catch very many beaver per day, I'm not that fast at putting them up.
