Lazy or Crazy?

13 posts in this topic

But I no longer have the desire to head out with my portable. I'd rather wait a week or 2 and bring out the permanent house. When I first got into Ice fishing, about 5 years ago, I couldnt wait to get out in the portable. Not anymore. *shrugs*

I say you're crazy!! the best ice fishing is on first ice with the portable. that being said however, I have yet to hit the ice this year. not because I'm waiting to get the big one out, but simply due to "life"!!! kids, activities, family....you know how it goes!

Ryan_V, that's also my biggest reason for not getting out yet. I almost thought about going out tonight, but forgot my daughter had piano. So, no go for me. Ah well...

I think that you are crazy but that is only because I love the fact that the lakes right now will have very few people out fishing and those that are out usually don't crowd you but as soon as you can drive out there is no spot were you are safe.

I cannot wait to get out this weekend! The walk- peace and quiet and the chance at some fish that have yet to hunker down deep!! my favorite time of year for fishing, golf takes over in April so I get the best of both worlds.

Not to mention my wife would not stand for golf and fishing at the same time until retirement!!!

you are not lazy or crazy. I used to run all over but now I am content with sitting in the house nice and warm with friends or alone and just enjoying waiting for the sound of the rattle reel. There is absolutely nothing more relaxing in this world for me than that. Get to the cabin friday, go out and drill the holes and come and go as I please all weekend. It is the absolute best. Watching the camera is like having a national geographic special playing in real time. Enjoy it as you like!!!

You aren't either. I'll go out this weekend and walk it, but I prefer when it's thick enough to use the wheeler. I have some medical issues though so long walks through snow suck for me.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
