I'm ready for the next season. .I serviced the 4 wheeler today. ..I changed the wheel bearings on the trailer and touched up the under coating...the rest of the gear was gone through when I put it away...should be fishing up north before Christmas.

My favorite ice fishing is done on a hot day in July, sitting in a lawn chair and fishing in a cooler for a cold one

Sure they do...that's why they will spend hours reminiscing about a fish they caught 5-8 months ago!

Yeah, the thought of warm weather is always appealing, but you will be missing out on some awesome opportunities for some awesomely big fish.

I still have friends and family that look at me like I wanted to paint the cat when I mention spending hours out on a frozen pond or lake.
I stopped trying to explain why it appeals to me and just revel in the fact that I can always find time and places to fish...even during the winter.

I am a legend in my own mind!

Great times...

Mostly it is a solitary pursuit...even with other shanties/fishermen around. I use a portable shelter, its quiet, and nobody bothers you, even into the evening. Last year was a bit brief!

Some of the biggest bass I’ve caught have been through the ice.

Can’t wait

It beats sitting around waiting for summer to return....and I have no desire to migrate south... With the nice light weight clothing available today and modern user friendly tackle and "tools" available ice fishing can be enjoyed by almost anyone...I can't think of a better way to get some exercise and put some fish fish on the table.

I have never been ice fishing, always wanted to try. Every year, I say this is the year. Hopefully this will be the year. Found a guide in CT who is scheduled to take me and 2 of my kids on January 5. Hoping for thick ice and a mild day, though he has a heated shelter.

That's a nice way to enjoy the experience. ..

I was just thinking about my ice fishing experiences
They were mostly in the Northeast Kingdom on Seymour Lake
Ice in February was typically over 3'
Temps around zero
Spent a week up there one year, high all week was 17..........below
There were fish, camp was warm, food was good.

In life, it's important to know when to stop arguing with people and simply let them be wrong.
