I think you forgot BEER. grin.gif

Oh and another cooler... not fun to sit and wait for beer to get cold. Do not forget the can coozy fingers can get cold hangin onto cold beer, look for one that has a catchy phrase on it... Then you can look at your beer holder and laugh... then you'll laugh everytime you get a beer... grin.gifgrin.gif

Something to go potty in, not fun to try and balance on the back of the boat, after having beer. shocked.gif

Hope this helps! cool.gif

How about winter jacket and bibs. Just becuase it's 70 and sunny when you're packing up the truck doesnt mean it won't be 30 and rainy when you're out on the water. I learned that one the hard way.

      Good luck. Guys!

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
