rzep I am in West Suburbs of Chicago. Have no boat but willing to split gas cost etc. I am not retired but can work around long weekends. If someone needs fill in the spring, keep me in mind. Green Bay probably is as far as I would travel.

ChrisL27 Everything keeps going right, I'll be living in the Winnecone area by mid spring. Always hated the city, and now I have the opportunity to get out of here. Looking at places around Boom Bay area, but still a little early to tell. I'll be getting the boat ready in mid March, last year I started going up April 7th. For now my trips are mostly last minute departures. Once bills are paid, and theres a nice reserve, I just grab the dog n go. 90% of my things stay packed all the time, so it's easier. Only problem with being self employed, is fighting that urge to stay on the water extra days...
I have a 1981 Smokercraft 18.5, 65HP
She's almost as old as me, and smokes even more, but reliable and tough. For the money I have in it, I couldn't be happier. I've also been told by locals up there, that it is the perfect river boat for that area. Just wish I could find a reasonably priced 80-90HP for her. She will do 30mph, but when I have 1 or 2 guys and the dog, plus gear, it's hard to get on plane.
I'll post once in a while, just so this thread stays active.
PS I'd love to get out ice fishing for some eyes or WB. I watch Larry Smith on YouTube, and learn a little here n there, but I've never been out on the ice, and have no equipment. If anyone is interested in possibly getting a guide for a day or 2, get on the ice, let me know.
Spring can't come fast enough.
My brother lives on Nippersink Creek, near Rustic Harbor Marina. He just picked up a sled and shack for on the ice, with some used equipment. But, we have never been out. So, if anyone has ice fished the Chain, I have access to free equipment use, just need some guidance.

ChrisL27 I've tried to reply to some of you, not all replys went through. Let's keep this tread active, until we can figure out a way to communicate. There are enough of us out here, always looking for company. I've been a little busy lately, but always hit that point, where I say F it, and just drop everything to fish. I have no problem driving 3 hours, just to fish for 2 days. I've been on Chain of Lakes, IL, 6 days this week, and nothing but bluegill to show for it. I feel a 2 day trip coming soon. I'll post on here, when I figure it out.

I live just south of the WI border and north of Chicago. I'd be willing to meet up and jump in someone's boat or use my own. I too like fishing during weekdays and would be willing to travel as I am retired. Email me or PM me.
