The good news is we may be seeing an early ice out date


Recommended Posts

Good grief! Even ice out is political now. Clearly some of you need to go ice fishing before global warming ruins this season..   

 

Been doing my part for the bait shops this winter by spilling a large tub of waxies every time out.

To be fair, the article the OP shared is focused on how a collection of resort owners are lobbying state legislators to get low or interest free loans to get them through this rough period. But your point is taken and I myself plan to drown some minnows tomorrow for the first time in a while.

To be equally fair, the title talks ice out in the ice fishing section, so lets talk ice out. Maybe even argue if early ice out is good or bad. Otherwise this belongs at the bottom of this forum at this point.

Well, since the owners of the resort who are spearheading efforts to get a bailout are located on Winnie, a lake known for jumbo perch, I would say a late ice out would be better. Hopefully attract a few more ice fisherman and recoup some lost revenue, so they don't need a bailout.

Ice out isn't political, using tax dollars to bail out resort and bait shop owners is.

Well it is here right now, to the point this post should be moved down to sillytown. Was the OP trying to stir the pot? I don't know. The title started in the right section. 

 

Just have to wait and see on early ice out, which I'm against. The good news is the ice put on 2-3 inches last week, I can no longer K-drill from inside my car.  This weeks forecast could add some more. Those that cater to sleds have to be doing good,, most traffic I've seen for years and mostly new machines running around. Lots of money being spent.  

 

This challenging winter (aren't they all?) has helped further diminish my want for a wheelhouse. Since I've shifted from beer drinking to catching fish this comes to mind when considering wheel or skid houses-
