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.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
