Ice fishing has sank to a new low IMO ! Flashers & underwater cameras are not enough ....We now have the "all new , super , automatic , jaw jacker thingy that not only sets the hook for you , but comes with 3 auto-jig discs to take the task of jigging a lure out of your hands . Lovely !
Soon to come ??...watch you new auto fish catchers from the inside of your warm hut on your phone with a built in alarm in case you are texting , watching a movie , etc etc. and maybe that camera can also be hooked up to the phone to see what is happening at the jackers lines ...reminds me of that old song "In the year 2525" which will come much sooner than that .
When I see people showing off their great catches , I have to wonder if they could catch a fish without all their electronics ..... guess I'm old fashion , but I want to catch fish using "my" brain , not rely on a machine with the latest technology . ....For sure full limit catches will increase ....maybe time to use conservation limits , I would go for that ....
