I'd say anytime between late September to early December. Late September, I know I start getting the icefishing itch and want to look at stuff to buy.

I agree with Hoggs, but I would say late Sept-Feb. Just because ppl are still on the ice in Feb and still have a couple months left.

Some people might want to use it for a base camp for hunting before getting it on the ice. So I would say any time from Sept. to Nov.

I would say what is wrong with right now? The more time you have to sell something the better. In fact I am looking for one right now. What do you have?

When i put it up for sale this is one of the sites I will be using. I know the Mods would not approve if i were to post in this forum what I have for sale. Part of my issue is that I want a house for the annual camp ripley hunt in mid October. Therefor i now almost have to wait till after the hunt to list it for sale. I want to list it on several sites when the demand and interest is high.

I would start posting your house now with the stipulation that it will not be delivered until such and such date. Your potential buyer might just buy from some one else cause he wants it for opening of deer hunting and wants to prep it while it is warm out or just wants to be sure he has one.

Think about that for a minute. You are looking to buy, now is a great time to buy winter gear. But for someone wanting to sell- not so much. Be like selling a snowblower in June, if you were buying you'd save money, but if you were the seller you would make much more in december.

I sold mine last year. I had it posted from 3/08 till it sold the weekend after Thanksgiving. I didn't have anybody call or email on it until first ice started form, once that happened it was nutz and sold very quickly. It surely wouldn't hurt to post it now, but i'm thinking your a couple months away from seeing serious buyers. I posted it here, on c r a i g s l i s t and on bulletin boards at resorts up north, most were responding to the c-list ad and that's where the buyer came from. That site works! Good luck and hope that helps.

Purchased mine last September. I knew what I wanted and was looking for a deal. The prices seem to go up once the ice starts forming and people get the itch!

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
