WHAT? you have the fall hunting season, then its hardwater time. 4 1/2 months of ice fishing, no bugs. who has the time to get down in the dumps? confusedsmirksmilegrin

The only thing I get depressed about is that there's too much to do and not enough time. Height of the rut right now and it's a beautiful day to be out on the water.

For years I've told my hubby that he seems depressed after deer season is over. I think its because he spends at least 6 wks getting ready for it and dreaming about it and when its over and you have to pack the "stuff" away--it's DEPRESSING!!!

thats why you need a project. such as modding your ice house. it keeps ice fishing on your brain but not thinking of the actual ice fishing.. its the only thing keeping me occupied untill the water freezes over. what do you all do to keep your mind off of being on the ice.

Ha-Ha he doesn't need another pastime. Now if he were in to home improvement projects - I'd encourage that.

Well to me guys, it doesnt matter what season it is for me.

I love ice fishing more than summer fishing but I will take eather.

The spring brings awesome fishing and it always feels good to bring the boat out, then we get summer and its hot and the bass are going nuts and fishing is good, then comes fall you get good hunting and the fall bite for muskies and pike can be awesome, then winter the best fishing in my opinion anywas

I understand how people feel if they aren't into ice fishing or any other type of winter sports. Before I got into ice fishing years ago I use to hate when winter time got here because open water fishing was done and would have to wait till the end of winter to go again. This was depressing for me because it seemed like winter took forever to end, now that I do ice fish winter goes by too quick.

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
