    One Ice Fishing Tip

    I'll second the mobility. I spend way too much time "waiting" for fish or plop myself down and get ready for the nite bite. No more. I'm going get off my duff and move more for fish. Orty

    It's Snowing!

    Got the snow. Bring on the cold!!! I think I'm going to practice jigging tonight in my garage. A 5 gal bucket should help me get my fix. I'm going nuts!!! Orty

    Ice Show and IceLeaders.com

    Great show - can't wait. I have a hard time finding a certain lure but I know I can get it there and so much more at the ice fishing show. I might be "that guy" - first in line. Orty

    Ice Fever....

    I'm going nuts! Where's the ice? I might have to go for a long drive. A really long drive if you know what I mean. Orty

    Hardwater Goals...

    My goal for 2005-06: Hope my two boys (ages 3 & 2) catch their first fish through the ice. The look on their faces catching their first fish this summer was priceless. I can't wait to see them when they pull some through the ice. It'll be great. Camera's ready!

    First muskie of 2005

    Luck - I've got a "Muskie" master I need to introduce you to. He needs a fishing buddy. I've never went after muskies and don't have a clue where to start, but I may need to have you two meet. Later, Don
  10. Great Law. Nothing wrong with having the kiddies wearing the LJ's while they're on the boat and even the dock. Don

    my new fishing pal is on the way

    I've got a 3 yr old and a 2 yr old. I can't remember what life was like before they arrived. 3 yr old has 13 "marks" on his Zebco. Seeing his face lite up when he reels in a monster sunny is priceless. We got the 2 yr old out fishing for the first time last week. He kept asking - where fish daddy? He didn't get one but I'll make sure he does this weekend. Nothing beats having a fishing pal. Congrats! Don

    The Quest of Openers

    Having fallen off the fishing "wagon" and getting back on the past couple of years, the opener is truly one of the best days of the year. Have a great opener! Good luck! Don
  13. MJ - I would love to blow up that picture and put it on my wall. Can I have it?

    Makin' a list

    Great list. I actually sat down a few years ago and went through a legal pad jotting down most of this stuff. I thought I had it all until the next time I was out fishing/camping. Missed a few things. No big deal. I'll compare and if I have anything to add, I'll post it hear. Thanks again! Don

    Lifetime license ?

    Thanks for the info. My two boys are interested in fishing and I've thought about getting the life time liscenes. If I time it right, I might be able to save about $100. Don
