HEY BUCK,

NORMALLY THAT IS COMING INTO SOME OF OUR BEST ICE FISHING., I'M THINKING IF STAYS COLD (WHICH ITS SUPPOSE TO) WE MAY HAVE EXCELLENT ICE CONDITIONS, THE ICE HAS IMPROVED ALOT IN THE LAST WEEK., I THINK IT WILL BE A GREAT TIME TO COME UP TO RAINY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey B&D,

Arguably one of my favorite months to fish is march and april. I think it is because fisherman start there preperation for open water, and lose focus or motivation for hard ice angling. Big pike and walleyes are to be had late ice. The other nice thing is you don't have to contend with the brutal cold typically that time of year.

As for the Outdoor weekly article I'm on this week. I would say that they will likely use your photo's as long as it is a nice quality picture. Most publications don't like stringer shots or piles of dead fish on the ice. Nice clean shots with no blood... and of course BIG FISH! Ha! Good Luck! Look me up when your up, or pass a message on through the Fishing Queen!

Hey Rainydaze looks like they put it in the paper...but I wasn't the only one with a fish from woodys fairly reliable guide service! Looks like Dave Genz got the cover, but none the less still some nice eyes from rainy going to be in the paper.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
