I've been working on the shack, but everything else can wait until November.
countdown to go time! :D
Wednesday of gun deer season I was on the ice in Sawyer county, a lot of open water still but early ice spots had 2-4". I'm hoping to do the same this year. I'll head to northern MN if there's no ice in WI and I'm tagged out after opening weekend of hunting again.
Shading, are you going to make a handwritten note and post it in the Trading Post?
I am in no hurry for ice fishing, but hunting season sounds great. Even fall fishing after all the other people have gone back to their lives. When I have the lake mostly to myself.
161 more days for me! 9 days until the days start getting shorter...
Had to go through some ice fishing lures to find some small spoons for trout fishing this past weekend, really got the itch going to get back on the hardwater!
Another 3 months or so until they'll start releasing the new products for the year too! That usually keeps me content reading reviews and pre-ordering until the snow flies.
Only time I've ever wanted to be ice fishing rather than soft water fishing was on Sunday in the sweltering heat when I realized I had to paddle my kayak 2 miles back to the boat landing. Paddling the 2 miles to get to that spot wasn't so bad because I started early in the morning when temps were in the high 60's. When I got back I was exhausted and drenched with sweat.
