: They must be sad without ice

Im just thinking of our soft water freinds who never see ice, that must really be a bummer not to get to walk out on the lake and drill some holes, set some tip ups and get to jigging while the weber grill has got your meal cooking. I lived in the north all my life and could not imagine no ice. I am so thankfull for four seasons and good winters! Its 13 deg. out right now and dropping, making great ice.... Yeeee Haa!

I am with you North Waters!
Use the WALLEYE CENTRAL BUSINESS DIRECTORY "Skeeters Stuff" under marine supplies (boat cleaning supplies), it really does work.
I agree, most are probably GREEN with envy right now he he.
But look at it this way, not everyone can live in the north. Grandpa always said, its the severe cold / snow that keeps the rip raff out.

Hey that is how it was here in Ohio last season. !!! It was very sad !!! Our ice season around here last year was less than 3 weeks . !!! Never go out on the Erie either !! Looked really good around the Holidays last year and then came the warm weather. Hopefully this season will be better ??

I agree ...we are blessed in the North. A flag up on a tip up is always a smiling thing. I'm sure that there is Ice Fishing in the after life with the big guy.

Yep, I like the change of seasons! It mixes things up a bit.
Although one could make an argument for year round boating in warm weather and..............BIKINIS!!:phatyo:

When I lived down south for a while, I would be wearing a long sleeved shirt and the people down there were dressed for one of our SD winters and couldn't understand why I wasn't freezing. I really don't think folks that are born in the south really care about our ice. They think we're nuts to live here in the winter.

Heh,heh, you guys are limited to those little holes in the ice and we get to fish all over the lake. We might miss cooking our meal when we are fishing, or reading a book, but down here when we go out, we're too busy hauling in walleye for such nonsense. :)
Have a good winter!

This Texan fellow sure dont know what he is missing! I say a guided ice trip to mn / wi or canada is in dire need!!

naww, he'd freeze to death. Let him think he has it made down south... ;-)

Maybe we could trade an ice fishing trip for an all out, soft water, slabbing hogfest??!! :)
Any takers might want to throw in some warm clothes just in case running around the lake at 40 mph and 30 degrees gets a little bothersome.
Come see us!
