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.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
