My advice is... Enjoy the season you have, even as you look forward to the one in the future.

That being said, I usually daydream about ice fishing during the sunny 95 degree days with 99.97% humidity.

When I ice fish I dread open water season, during open water I can't wait for hard water. Just love the hard water I guess.

I think about ice fishing all the time....I generally only get to go once or twice a year! Try that on for size! lol

Since our heat index has been up around 110 lately....I think about it even more!

I don't miss the ice, I love being out in the boat, hot or not. Acutally use my boat on pool 4 in the winter time. I enjoy ice fishing, but not nearly as much as open water.

We may have the same affliction.

I was just hanging out with my 5 year-old son today. My auger had failed to start about a month ago for unknown reasons. I still don't know why I was messing around with it in May. crazy

Anyway, we decided to make a run up to StrikeMaster before lunch. The guys there took it in the back and had it running in about 30 seconds. Apparently, the diaphragm was stuck. We all had a good laugh about the quick fix then they showed me how to remedy it... should it happen again.

Maybe they were just laughing about my potential insanity. After all, what's a guy need an ice auger for this time of year. The boys were grilling in the shop today and were nice enough to offer us a couple of burgers. These guys can even cook... quite well I might add.

I had a brief moment of weakness after the burgers and bought a new 10" auger drill. After all, size does matter and the 8" Lazer drill I had at home just didn't seem adequate anymore.

Definitely, first-class guys up there, fellas.

Now, about this sickness I seem to have...

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
