Kind of ironic.............

Wouldn't it be ironic if today was the day open water moved to the top of the page?

Unbelievable the short amount of time it takes to pile up snow this time of year. Flakes are huge here.

I jinxed myself - I put the shovels in storage last weekend. I'll be ticked if I have to pull them out again wink

I just finished blowing about 1 1/2 feet of the heavy, wet, white stuff out of my driveway. Yesterday I was looking at my yard and it was snow free.

Yeah, me too but we didn't get enough to shovel. I had high hopes of having the boat on the water by now. Not cold enough to make any ice, not warm enough to get rid of any.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
