This has to be the worst time of the year . Especially this year with the weather being so mild . Repairs to my boat will be completed when I put the rebuilt prop back on . Upgrades are done . Tackle has been checked , organized & re-organized then rechecked . Now its wait .. wait & wait . Might just have to head to the Rainy @ ice out for Walleyes .

Muskycrazy I am right there with you. Brother was out on Lake Superior today with a alright catch, myself I spent the past 2 days getting the boat ready for when I get back from Mexico. It will be time to hit it hard and I will be in no mood to be fiddling with gear.

It's time for the countdown as well, heck I might even go as far to say that open water should be climbing to the top and ice fishing gets put in snooze mode! grin.gif

With the early time change and the unseasonably warm spring this is going to be a long wait to opener. I'm still staring at 2 feet of ice. frown.gif

It's always open season where I live, even if it's just for bluegills.

the guys that can get out to south and north dakota are lucky, I just can't find the time to make it. I am really looking forward to the south shore in late april trolling for trout and salmon, otherwise just an occasional trip to pool 2 or 4. Either way I'm chompin at the bit to get at those Winnie walleyes. As for checking lines, jigs, rigs, rapalas and devoting entire paychecks to gander mountain I don't know what else a guy can do to pass the time. confused.gif

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
