I can see the white hot coals of the smartfire already! The owls hootin up in the hardwoods and the sound of the Root River moving over the limestone. Can't wait to take that first step, take that first cast and fool that first Brown! Suave_anim.gif

I'm sure Sponge Bob will take good care of the kids while I'm gone! hihi.gif

WET NETS!

Bring it on! I allready bought a new ultralight rod to replace one that broke this year, and a nice new Cardnial 4 bearing reel that was marked down %25 for $30. Rear drag and an extra graphite spool. Abu's are nice. I was going to use it to replace a reel with a broken bail, but here I go back and find out that the super glue I applied now holds it together firmly.. it just needed more time to set. Oh well... I need an excuse to buy a fairly decent rod anyways... I've allways wanted to try out an Ugly Stick...

I'm daydreaming more frequently about the boat and 75 degree weather at work now... and I can just imagine what it's going to be like in a little over a month in the transition period... ugh! I hate this time of year!

I'm ready, only 4 weeks until the boat comes out of storage and goes in for a tune-up. I can't wait, I love to ice fish, but I haven't been able to do as much as I like. My daughter is on a competitive dance team and they perform all winter long, the state tournament is Feb 21 & 22 and she is done, she is a senior and next winter is mine. But back to the topic at hand, bring on spring!!!!

I hope none of you are the ones saying "I can't wait for the ice!" too.

I too am itching to get on that water. I love ice fishing, but you can only drill so many holes each year before yourhead wants to explode. I've takin the liberty of getting a jump start by fishing a few culverts in the river, done good, but it just isn't the same with 20 sq yards of open water. I'm bouncin off the walls!

    • 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?
