Lets talk ICE, or lack of.
My fishing Buddy and I have been fishing for 43-Years. We planned our Annual Ice Fishing Trips for the week before Xmas, or the week between Xmas and New Year's Eve. Our trips would be Upper Red and Winne in MN.
2003 we took a boat out on the water; still got the video.
After that year, we changed the annual fishing trip to the end of Jan.
I'll be out this Sunday good luck and stay safe to everyone else.
