No offense but I hope not blush.gif. I remember several years ago fishing in a boat while listening to Christmas tunes on the radio, it was december 15th or 16th.

Actually I just bought an icehouse this summer still need an auger and a few other acutriments. Looking forward to a long fall then I'll give the ice a try. cool.gif

I'm with Sluggo, Fishing from Sept. through Nov. can be some very good fishing. Plus the river bite goes all winter. Time to get the red tails out.

True, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared. I put new carpet in my permanent fish house this afternoon.... I just love to keep busy I guess. Plus it's alot easier to work on that ice fishing crap when it's 80 degrees and sunny as oppossed to 20 degrees and dark. Know what I mean? How many times in December do you kick yourself because simple little tasks seem impossible because of normal WINTER conditions? I'm with you guys though, I do love fall fishing and yes I believe the best is yet to come this year. Just following the theme of the original post is all... smirk.gif

Yes the best fishing is still to come. I feel that were going to have a huge winter. If you look at what his summer has become, there has only been a few weeks where it has been hot. Get them houses ready now, your right bro, your not going to be wanting to work on them houses in the cold.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
