Bait bucket lid flying away, line that gets stuck on ice chunks around the hole as you are rewrapping it, Wind blowing snow over your holes and leaving a mushy cap of wet thick snow all around the area, things falling out of your sled on the way back off the lake, and buying large shiners that are really mediums.

Yeah the ice melting after another short ice fishing season in Southeast Wisconsin.Really hate global warming,no way lakes should be ice free this early.Seems to get worse each year.

I know that feeling too, James and John. Seeing giant 13-14 inch crappie swim by like a ghost ship on camera, while a 7 inch gill hammers the spoon instead. Then when you finally do hook one of those monsters, the hook always seems to come out while they are still in the hole. Best case scenario- I save the fish , but my glove and arm are soaking wet up to the elbow

John13 knows annoying like I do. Watched big mama perch swim up to my  waxie on a small rocker lure. She grabbed the waxy just short of the hook and shook her head like a bulldog tearing the bug free for an easy snack. The next drop, a small one rushed in inhaled the whole thing and I wrestled with the pliers to get it off the hook while the rest of the perch on the camera got bored and swam away. Very VERY annoying!

Walking down the walkway at Cold Springs and seeing all the trash, I did pick up a couple of cans,  a plastic cup and fish line as I left last night.

What's annoying this winter is seeing lot's of nice panfish on my aqua-view camera just ignore my bait.

Agree. How do I get a knot in new tip up line when the only open part of the line is at the end and it's fine?

Some of those knots defy the laws of physics.
