Three purchases I tried to get in early for ice fishing this summer have failed. "Try again in October" is all I have heard. Not store purchases but online vendors. I still want the products and I won't name them to bash them but it is kind of frustrating. No worms for this early bird. Don't they know I can't save money? grin

I know your pain, I would like to get hyfax and a cover for the fish trap scout that I picked up BEFORE the lakes start to harden.

Some companies just don't release product until a certain date. Many online retail stores order from distributors and not direct, and distributors sometimes order only seasonal items. September-October is generally when most of the distributors begin to stock up on winter gear that is then offered to the retailers...

Soon we'll get that first cut of cold air and the ice gear will start to trickle in smile

    • While the memes and banter is entertaining, at some point the rubbers gotta meet the road and the party in charge right now has to show they have the maturity and the vision to lead the country.  So, at this point and into the future I ask the resident Republicans to show me why they were the right choice and to demonstrate the way they would expect everyone else to behave by doing so themselves.
