Heading out in a couple hours. Temps in the 50's slight wind out of the south and the barometer dropping.  Should be a great day on the ice, just cant decide where to go lol

fished east oakwood yesterday and it was the dead sea. I had never fished there before so thought I would check it out. Fished from 1pm to 10pm and only caught one dink walleye at about 8:30pm. Moved around all day until just before dark and got settled on some bumps off a point in the SE end of the lake. Didnt mark or see anything on the camera the entire day. Lots of guys coming and going on the far north end but I didnt want to fish among the noise especially in such a shallow lake.

anyone else make it out in the brookings area since friday? I am just curious as to how the ice is holding up after the rain on Saturday and warm weather today? After a week of warm temps think ice will still be safe for atv's later this week yet?

I had made plans to take tomorrow off and spend the night on the ice tonight with my kids since they don't have school tomorrow. Doesn't look like that's going to be an option any more. I have done some pretty creative things to get on and off the ice before but not going to do that with 2 6 year olds.

 

What a terrible year for ice fishing. Only blessing is that it will keep some pressure off some of the lakes. Might have to play bumper boats at the river but I am really hoping for a cold snap to firm up the shorelines instead.

    •   Because you have an affinity for such things??..    No, seriously, you need to take a good look at your browser's advanced settings.  Some browsers can be set so they will automatically wipe your cookies and search history every time you shut the browser down.  Not sure which browsers have this capability, but the one I use is Epic.    
    •   If we retrace what happened to get Obamacare passed in the first place, we need to remember the narrative that was used by the Democrats that there were 49 million Americans with no insurance.  Now they are saying 24 million Americans will lose their insurance if the law is struck down.  So I'm taking that to mean they actually got 24 million people to sign up in the exchanges under the law after 7 years.  So about as "successful" as the REAL ID Act...   Between the healthcare industry, big pharma, and the insurance industry, somewhere between $300 and $400 million was spent in lobbying to get the ACA passed.   The Koch brothers are pledging $300 to $400 million in the 2018 election cycle to strike the legislation down, and have also stated they will not support any politician in the future who votes for Ryan-Care.   It's how things work in the real world, like it, or not....
    •   Can anyone explain why I get ads here for dating sites with a picture of a big busted older woman   or Russian and oriental girls looking for marriage when I don't even go on those sites?
    •    In a  free market, ObamaCare would have collapsed two years ago. And all the promises made regarding it are and have been falling apart.   But government does not let boondoggles collapse. ObamaCare will be funded, unfortunately, with more debt and printing to keep it and all it's problems on life support   Think "too big to fail" and QE    
    •   Nunes Backs Down From Assertion Trump Was Monitored   Keep reading your fake news Uncle Bill. Also Nunes canned the next committee hearing on Russia. He is basically a Trump crony at this point, trying his best to obstruct the committees investigation.   There's Trump's transition team. Now go back and watch the Comey hearing. I think you will hear a certain 2 GOP representatives who are only worried about who is leaking intelligence rather than what the intelligence says (or literally the exact same thing Trump says).
    •   They could for example sell the information to your insurance company that would promptly adjust your rates if you showed a tendency toward unhealthy behaviors. It doesn't take much imagination.   There is actually a plan to fight this one. The goal is to crowd source some funding, then purchase the data for congressmen and publish them all to the public.
