We had good ice early on, then it warmed up and melted, from there it was rain, snow, cold, wind keeping the water open, more rain and last week we finally had a good cold snap.
In the interim I bought a windrider ice suit,, ( crap, that reminds me, I still owe bearcat for a shelter ) got the right auger for the one I bought from EPG, my helix 7 and dakota 18 bazillion amp battery, ( thanks Grouse for the IDO input ) and I was all set to go ice fishing finally!!!
Well, today it got to 52 here and its so sloppy on top I cant get to any ponds, not only that its way too warm for the new ice suit and I am sick of the weather and ready for open water, I could care less about ice fishing now.
I talked to Mike M today and I know he is ready to get his boat out in two weeks after his recovery from knee replacement.
Anyone else ready for spring??
