Oh, how I love the cold!

5 posts in this topic

I love hitting the hardwater when the temps are below zero.

The colder the better in my opinion.

I've never been much of a mover when on the ice, and there's nothing better than being cozy warm in the shelter (hopefully catching some dinner!) when it's blowin' below zero outside.

I'll be out on the lakes M-F this week doin' my best.

See ya out on the ice!

P.S. Don't forget the thermals...and yer hat....coveralls are suggested....gloves of course....the propane/heater combo is important....hand warmers for checking the tip-ups(I like to use my bare hands when possible)....ya might want to keep the beer in the shelter.....lip balm...a scarf is nice sometimes...........

Me and my friend just had this discussion the other day. As we recalled the better nights of last year as well as this year the bite was much greater than usual during those brutally cold snaps. I am starting to get more excited about cold fronts more than ever before. I can recall a number of years ago up north and it was -30 with 30 MPH winds= -50 degrees for 3 straight days. The fishing was phenomenal!!!

Cold weather = thicker ice on the lakes = driving of cars and trucks out to fishing spots smirk

I just ran to the Cenex station for a can of Grizzly, I am not going anywhere tomorrow, unless conditions drastically improve. This is one of the nastiest storms I have ever seen- I couldn't see tailights 20 feet in front of me.
