I'm done icefishing...see you on the "open water" side

Recommended Posts

Like any of you care...but between getting the garage in order for spring, the boat prepped and lubed, the furniture re-arranged in the house (for the wife! "Spring Cleaning"), spending time with my beautiful baby boy...I think I've given up the idea of icefishing this winter!? I'm not too proud to admit that either. But the thought of trudging through water with my portable in tow, doesn't sound the least bit appealing to me now that I've turned 44!!
I'm too excited to wet the boat now...
See you guys in the Open Water Forum...ta-ta! --AK

My hat's off. the flags are at half staff. I can relate! I'd like to try once more though. Just once. I don't know where or when, or even if I'll go. But anyway, Come on spring! P.S. I'm the same age, and sometimes feel it. Never say die. You have to save yourself for when that little squirt says, "Dad, can we go fishing?".

Don't feel bad, ACK, I came to the same conclusion this week - time to practice space management. The portable, the snowmobile, garage heater, ice gear, dried minnow chowder powder from walking on the mess from the tipped-over minnow bucket... Time to finish the deck I started last fall, too... Here's to open water soon, and next year's ice!

The best ice fishing is just starting boys, but I guess that leaves more room for me out there. Thanks!!!

fishface,

Finally, someone that admits they are older than me. smile.gif You can fish with me anytime.

Not too much ice left. Open water in Missouri and Kansas this weekend and 65 degrees. First ice I saw coming north was at Albert Lea. Better hurry!!! The open water is coming.

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      Really small scallops

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.

      Couple boat  trailers sitting on 22 access this afternoon. Everyones getting the itch 
    • smurfy
      Yeah and if that's the case bring your own water for the boat to sit in. I've seen nest on a normal opener!!

      The cheeks could be good sushi if you like the texture. Too chewy for my taste. Now I just pop them in the frying pan for about 10 seconds for a tasty appetizer
