starting to read articles in the papers about when the leaves start falling and winter setting in that more & more people start to get depressed. 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.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
