I'm looking forward to next season. Unfortunately, I won't fish until August as I have an exam in July that I've been preparing for since 2006. I guess the muskies will have to wait. frown

For me ice fishing seems to help as a methadone type treatment to the heroine addiction that is muskie fishing.

Hey guys.......

I have a great little tool that I use for countdowns to such things as the Opener and Operation Muskie and such. Displays all info in pie graph form. If you want a copy of it, shoot me an email at bret.wold at gmail.com and I will send it to you. Thing rocks.

I am going to start making bucktails to help the winter pass by. Planning on heading down to IL to fish with Chad Cain this spring and then perhaps move down to TN to fish with Doug Johnson to get an early jump on the season.

Ill pass the time ice fishing but it just is not the same! I live for open water and casting.

Hard to believe it's 6 months away and with the way the temps are falling the river walleye fishing won't last much longer either.

My wife and I are expecting our second child on 12/30 at 12:30pm. Yep, you know it I get the tax right off this year and it's a health insurance savings also.

Anyway, that little one will keep me plenty busy over the course of the next 6 months. It will likely take away from time on the water next summer, but absolutely worth it.

Come to Wisconsin and that countdown is already in the 5 month xx days range, depending on where you fish.

If the wait really does get that unbearable, you can always head south, lots of good options, KY, IA, IL, IN and more I'm sure... Heck MO even has a lake or 2.

Thank god I have my boat to work on to kill time... am focusing on the motor right now as its on a stand in the garage... and ordering stuff after stuff through the winter for the boat... and once the snow melts... back to work I go on it... Am more in looking forward to finishing the boat, getting the motor back on, than the season opener... Once the boat is 100% done, the day I take her out will be my season opener...

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
    • Don't forget to get your Dihydrogen Monoxide detector as well!!! That's what we really need to be worried about!! Especially on and around lakes!
