Ice, Ice and more ice! Zero Ducks!

Recommended Posts

Lip'em

Hunted near Jordan this morning and found my pond to be completely frozen with about an inch of ice! Broke ice and put out a few dekes but did not see many ducks (saw tons of geese though) Hunted the same slough yesterday morning in the snow and the mallards started to pour in as we were loading up the boat to leave. Wishin I could have had just a few more hours on thursday before having to get back to the family. No matter how hard I try to shake it the should've, would've, could've card keeps playing over in my mind.

As for me, I think I will start packing away the floaters tonite and start taking out the field dekes for some late season honker action. It was a duck season full of trials and tribulations, ups and downs, mud due to low water, and most importantly a season full of memories and lessons learned to help carry me through the next ten months. Good luck to all who venture out during the last remaining days. I'll pray for wind!

-Keep on keeping on!

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
