I think it's about time for the Ice fishing forum to move to the top of the list. I see 81 people viewing the Ice fishing forum compared to 15 in open water. I think the cooler weather has put everyone in the mood for some ice.

In due time, I think it might be a little early yet, but I'm guessing it will be on top within the month.

LOL We're getting as bad as the retailers that put out Christmas stuff in September. I've got to admit my mind is starting to drift to the hardwater season though.

If you guys aren't fishing now you don't know what you're missing. This is possibly the best bite of the year.

if it were up to me, ice fishing would be at the top all year!! I don't open water fish, other than with the kids off the dock at the campground. I LIVE for the hard water, so bring it on!! I have noticed that since about august, the numbers viewing in the ice fishing forum have vastly outnumbered the open water viewers!!!

I think a big part of ice fishings viewers numbers almost always outnumbering the open water forums numbers is the fact there is about 75% more gear to ice fishing, and as men (and a few women) we are always looking for the newest gadgets to help us get the upper hand.

If it is the most active, it is already on top. However I hope to catch a fish tomorrow before I call it a season.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
