hey scott! many of us guys that have gals that either allow us to fish ( alot!) or love to fish with us or by themselves, we consider special. this site gets use by many males as well, but makes it easier for the gals to locate one another, and to share things. i.e. types of fishing, locations,gift ideas, and moral support for each other. i think it is great! just how i feel about it. del

I agree with Del...we are "special" hehehe j/k wink.gif. Seriously, think about it, how many women do you see out there actually fishing. Not many compared to the number of men. When I am out there with the hubby I will look around (summer or winter) just to see how many women are out there, not many, but I think that is slowly changing.

I think this forum is great although I don't come here as often as the main forums. It gives us fishin'chicks a chance to talk about stuff that the guys probably wouldn't bring up or roll their eyes at rolleyes.gif . I know this is the era of equal rights etc. etc. but sometimes us gals just need to get together and chat. Just my .02

I agree we are special! I was looking for a site before and it was all men so I just kept looking. Then I found this site and it is the only one I go to. I read all the forums that I am interested in and the guys are really great about answering our questions and not making us feel like idots. So thanks
Rick for making a spot just for us special fishingchicks!

Hmm. I'm a guy (married, kids) and I stop by to read and occassionally post 'cause I don't ice-fish, and my usual forums are kinda cold right now (pun intended). The Political Power forum hit a sandbar, the Mississippi River North forum is ice-clogged, and the Regional forums are all "ice ice ice". I like this spot.

Equality? Yes and no. Equality pertains only to treatment under the law, jobs, housing, and the like. Men and women are different and that's why a special forum for women involved in the sport is a good idea. One of the differences that make this forum nice is that women tend to be less confrontational than man, so there's less bickering and 'bowing up' on this forum than I've seen on others. Another is that women are more likely to engage in abstract topics, while men are more grounded. This is a fun place to wait for ice-out, and still talk fishing.

My wife is, frankly, sick of hearing me talk about fishing, and there is still a good 4 months of ice left.

Women are different, and there's nothing wrong with a women's forum. Now a Scandinavian Open Water But Not Lakes Over 300 Acres On Friday forum might be considered a bit of pandering.

    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
