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.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
