King - had me going for a while there. Safe ice by next weekend seems doubtful but if there is some around I'm sure you will find it. Hope the massive amount of runoff from last weeks showers didn't dirty the waters real bad. Be nice to be on the pond before Christmas.

Thunder - I think Timmy said exactly the same thing "not that I need anything but it doesn't hurt to look" at the diner in Richfield last year laugh. I know what you mean, I've got lures I haven't used in years and I still buy more. Looking forward to using the "Thunder special" on those Oneida Lake jumbos this year. I've been walking up and down my basement stairs 20 times a day to get ready for that little hill in Jewell crazy.

Going to the show on Friday hope to see you guys then.

22* and 4 inches of snow on the ground sunday I took a drive to a few small lakes south of me and there were a few backsets skimmed over.The water levels on the small lakes are high from that rain that we had but some calm nights might skim them over grin.

Been getting pounded as well the inches are piling up at least its only light fluffy stuff smile This should chill the water down more. With the next 2-3 nights lows in the single digits and low teens with the low wind speeds some small lakes should be locking up One more week and it should be no problem getting out might even try this upcoming Sunday gotta shoot a deer though before I start icefishing smile

Yeah Thunder thats just a lovely report. The 2nd day of January and all you see is green, green, green. Went out with Glen for a while yesterday, will report later, and the ice was pretty soft already. Continued mild temps and rain will do wonders for it.

On the bright side, good day to wash that Toyota!!! Have a good day, need to meet up on the hard water.

Thunder - thanks for the report. That amount of snow on top of what was already on the lakes makes the lakes we fish south of you just about unfishable. We need a fn thaw.

When all said and done the snow was up to my knees (about 20") and it was heavy stuff that was compacting as soon as it built up some depth. The lakes are a fun slushy mess smile walked through snow/slush today and yesterday that was half way up to my knees woo hoo fun stuff

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
