If You Don't Ice Fish...You wouldn't understand
In the past, I’ve thought about asking my uncle who is on the Conservation Congress to help me introduce a resolution for the April Hearings. What’s kept me from doing it is the pushback and arguing that I used to see on this site over the subject. I figured that there’d be enough against it that it would just be a waste of my time. I guess I could be accused of stirring the pot a little but I fully expected to get blasted when I posted my comments below a few weeks ago but that didn’t happen. Maybe the mindset is changing with the convenience and comfort of some of the portable shacks that continue to come onto the market.
By the way, I’ll remember that GPS trick the next time I get reamed by a permanent shack owner who decides to get territorial with me. I’ll have to decide whether or not I let him know what I’m up to when I’m marking the coordinates or just simply smile and walk away.
If you don’t ice fish, you wouldn’t understand.

It blows me away that you cannot leave a deer stand on public land overnight but people with permanent shacks can park over structure and discourage everyone else from fishing "their" spot for an entire season.
Sorry for the buzzkill but after last weekend, I've had it.
"Seeing well below zero temps almost every morning is a great thing. If you don't ice fish....."
However, for the first time that I can remember, I am actually WANTING a warm up. This is not normal for me. I love cold and I love ice. But, there is so much ice out there, and this is not only limiting the realistic ice fishing opportunities, but it's just getting a bit over the top having to wake up to -15 to -25 degrees up here (actual temp) a number of times of late.
Now, I don't want to see 45 degrees, but a few days in the upper 20s would be very nice! A warm up might be on the way next week after the worst Polar Plunge of the winter from Sunday night-Tuesday.
