I saw a 4 wheeler with an auger attached to it on a trailer with a fish house on the way home from work today. My guess is the guy either just bought it, or it was comming back from storage.

Trust me, you are not the only one with ice fishing on the mind. If you were, I would not have a new to me (used) snowmobile trailer in the yard.

I've still got open water fishing to do, but ice fishing is on my mind. I love to fish year around, ice, openwater, whatever.

I have been starting to get the "itch" lately, Glad hunting season is here. Noticed the local "Big" outdoors retailer had a lot of portables out on the floor for display already.

    • By their fruits you shall know them....   We will figure it out in a year or two.  Legacy and all that. 
    • So installing foot washing places in public buildings should be off limits?   Not clear if MSP airport has installed them or not.
    • This is true however the Christian conservatives get just as bent out of shape over Muslims doing it as atheists do when Christians do it.
    • Good point. Next time out, clip on your biggest spoon to see if that reads? If so keep going smaller while making adjustments until you can't read it anymore. Also try different depths.  If your reading bottom you should be about to see something still if adjusted right. Good luck.
    • So the sled and ice fishing gear as well it sounds like. Good for you.
    • Good price.  You just need a $1000 generator to run it - or a good current bush...
    • That particular jig or all jigs? $175 is ridiculous
    • I think it will only fit 2 of the longer track sleds. It a 7 X16 with a V front. But it only needs to fit mine anyway. I went with a cargo trailer with a rear ramp as I have reverse now so no need for a drive threw and its a lot less expensive.
    • I don't think there is any law preventing muslims from paying to allah in government buildings just like any christian can pray to jesus/god in a public building. 
    • Warm weather and rain have literally put a damper on winter recreation activities across much of Wisconsin, and have led to the cancellation of a number of activities planned for this weekend.Temperatures in the 30s and 40s and some steady drizzle, freezing rain and fog have reduced snow cover to minimal in the southern half of the state, and have left snowmobile trails open in only the northern tier of counties, but those counties continue to report good to excellent snowmobile conditions on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Ski trails are also still in good condition in northern parks and forests, though warm conditions have made the trails soft. Most trails in the southern half of the state are now closed, with the exception of the loop with man-made snow at the Lapham Peak Unit of the Kettle Moraine, which as of Thursday was still planning on going ahead with the Lapham Loppet Ski Races this Saturday.Freezing rain this week closed some park entrance roads earlier in the week but they have now reopened. Many parking areas remain icy, so anyone visiting properties this weekend should use caution. A candlelight event that had been scheduled this weekend at Governor Dodge and a snowshoe hike at the MacKenzie Center have both been cancelled. However, candlelight hikes will go on this weekend at the Nordic Trail in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine and at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. Both properties are reporting trails are icy and urge people to wear appropriate footwear and crampons of some type. Shuttles will be available for the Horicon event and anyone attending is strongly encourage to use the shuttles as parking areas are icy and muddy, and parking is limited. .
