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.

    • That's smart IMO.  I donated a soon to expire can of bear spray to a guy who was hunting that range about 5 years ago and he sprayed it in a bear's face from 8' away!   He swears to this day that I saved his life because he wasn't going to bother bringing bear spray.
    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
