Being I will be in SD Pheasant hunting in Mid December, I will vote for December 17th. Not just because I won't be around the week before that, but it is usually really cold at my house after I return from a longer hunting or fishing excursion!!! hehehehehe

The colder the better, eh?

Dude, I set up the voyager in the garage the other day, roped over the heater, and sat in it hanging out for a while. Mrs boilerguy thinks I have a couple of screws loose.

Well as far a standing on the ice the first day for that was Nov. 10th! I was shooting ducks and geese off the ice last Saturday. As far as fishing goes i'm thinking the 12/8 to 12/15 range hopefully it's sooner but that's when I was out last year according to my calendar and if memory serves me you were there with me Bill.

I do believe you're correct. I'm hoping to hit a couple 10 acre ponds in NW IA before I go anywhere. The history of those two during first ice is pretty impressive. You may be able to tag along as long as you don't have to babysit or "work". I'll get ahold of you when the time comes as for now im off to do a couple mods on my house and clean a few birds.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
