Merry Christmas to all, and a safe and bountiful New year.

Maybe Santa didn't bring the ice like we asked for Christmas. Maybe he has just been busy bringing us all our nice warm gloves and fishing poles that we all needed.

I say we all jump in his sleigh and ride to The North Pole, there has to be a few inches of ice there.

:-) TO Tim

Merry Christmas to CNY Tim and all of his friends. New to this board, but I know a few of you. CNY, met you a couple of seasons ago while I was walking my dog in the winter entrance section of Delta. Also ran into you a couple of times on Oneida - I believe you convinced me to try the rainbow trout pattern of the forage minnow. Fished the jumbo perch pond last year and saw you and the crew north of where we were fishing. Was gonna work my way up to you guys to say hello but never made it up that far. Met one of the other Tims (fishingking)in the area we were fishing and fished with him. Learned a couple of new tricks in catching shallow water jumbos from him - thanks again for the tips fishingking. Know one thing - when someone named Tim tells you something about fishing you better listen.

Hopefully we will get safe ice in the not too distant future. Don't know how Oneida may get this year, but if it doesn't take ice soon, there may not be any walleyes left in it the way you guys have hammered them.

Had a tough year health wise and had open heart surgery in September. Couldn't do any fall fishing because of that but at least I got to follow your adventures thanks to this forum. Hope to make it out on the ice this year and see some of you out there.

Happy Holidays.

Merry Christmas Tim & the rest of you.

Dad & I went up to Lake of the Woods Christmas Eve and pounded the walleyes like you wouldn't believe. You know the walleyes are biting when you can't keep up fishing 2 lines. smile.gif

Dark Cloud - Gardening videos?? grin.gif Nice..

Franky - Stick with the walleyes bud there's more of em than those four legged pedestrians smile.gif

Dave C is that you??? how the heck are you... Longtime buddy, too long. Yep we have a couple of guys that had there plumbing rerouted and there doing great, hope your mending nicely too. The rainbow trout gig man I haven't done that in a while , a matter of fact can't recall when Oneida had decent ice, LOL.. Z put me on that deal and the way things look Oneida may not be on the list except maybe edgewater for eyes. Hope not, miss that lake... I'll be poking around the winter entrance on Delta hopefully soon, that place can be a good indicator for me on what lakes may be close to fishable and it's close to work for me to check. You'll have to check in with us on the diner deal on Saturday morings whe we do C, although I plan on spendng some time with the king down there this winter looking for a mixed bag wink.gif I'll call you this week Dave to catch up..

Johnny - I would have posted that pic with Andrew and Santa that's an instant classic that's identical to Amanda's first trip to the big fellas lap... grin.gif

Chris - Well I'm glad someone has ice for Christmas and to spend it with Pop's don't get any better than that, throw in a slamfest and you got a memory that will last forever, well done.

Had an excellent Christmas dinner at Rosa's Mom's and a bit of wine to wash it all down. Great day to be with the family. Let's wish for som cold boys and continue the fall slaughter into spring. Merry Christmas brothers.

Gee what a surprise to find a Marcum LX5 left by Santa under the tree . . .hmmm how did he know?? Can you believe Al called Christmas eve and wanted to know what time I was going over . . .it was tempting but had to go to a party and partake of the scotch (too much) and mix it with wine (bad move). Have not heard how Al made out. I do know that people were still catching them (at the right time) . . . waders with the pale Frenzy . . . now who would that be??? Lee and I just watched, well yeah we did cast a few . . .

    • RV camping is a popular way of enjoying the great outdoors while still having the comfort and convenience of home. It's a lifestyle that many people are choosing, from full-time RVers to weekend warriors who use their RVs for occasional getaways. In this essay, we'll explore the pros and cons of RV camping lifestyle and how it can impact your life.   Pros of RV Camping Lifestyle Flexibility: One of the biggest advantages of RV camping is the flexibility it offers. You can go wherever you want, whenever you want. There's no need to worry about booking accommodation or sticking to a schedule. You can change your plans on the fly and explore new places without any restrictions.   Cost Savings: RV camping can be more cost-effective than other forms of travel or traditional home ownership. You don't have to pay for hotels or restaurants, and you can save on rent or mortgage payments. RVs can be a great way to travel without breaking the bank, especially if you're a full-time RVer.   Outdoor Adventure: RV camping is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors. You can explore national parks, forests, and other natural wonders. RVs allow you to camp in remote areas that you wouldn't be able to access with traditional vehicles or accommodations.   Social Connections: RV camping can be a great way to meet new people and make friends. You'll find communities of like-minded people in RV parks, and many RVers are eager to share their experiences and knowledge with others.   Cons of RV Camping Lifestyle   Maintenance: RVs require regular maintenance, which can be time-consuming and expensive. You'll need to perform routine tasks like checking the tires, changing the oil, and winterizing the RV to keep it in good condition.   Limited Space: While RVs can be quite spacious, they are still limited in terms of living space compared to a traditional home. This can be challenging for full-time RVers who are used to having more space.   Driving: Driving an RV can be intimidating, especially if you're new to it. RVs are larger than traditional vehicles, and they require more space to maneuver. This can be stressful for some people, especially in crowded areas or tight spaces.   Limited Amenities: RVs may not have all the amenities of a traditional home, such as a full-sized kitchen, washer and dryer, or bathtub. This can be a drawback for some people, especially those who are used to having these amenities at home.   How to Save Money Without Sacrificing Comfort of RV Camping   RV camping is a great way to experience the great outdoors while enjoying the comforts of home. However, the cost of an RV camping trip can quickly add up, and it can be challenging to stick to a budget. In this essay, we will explore tips on how to save money on an RV camping trip without sacrificing comfort.   Plan ahead: Planning ahead is essential when RV camping on a budget. Research campsite fees, fuel costs, and any other expenses associated with your trip. Make a budget and stick to it.   Choose budget-friendly campsites: There are plenty of budget-friendly campsites available that offer basic amenities, such as water and electricity hookups. National parks and state parks are great options for affordable camping. Some private campgrounds also offer lower rates than others, so do your research and find the best deals.   Cook your meals: One of the biggest expenses on an RV camping trip is eating out. Cooking your meals in your RV can save you a lot of money. Pack a cooler with food that can be easily cooked on a stove or grill. Consider meal planning ahead of time to make grocery shopping more efficient and cost-effective.   Use free amenities: Many campsites offer free amenities such as hiking trails, beaches, and playgrounds. Take advantage of these amenities and plan activities around them. Instead of paying for activities outside the campsite, use the free amenities offered.   Pack Efficiently: Space is limited in an RV, so pack efficiently. Make a list of everything you'll need and pack only what's necessary. When camping during winter, utilizing rechargeable hand warmers is advisable. These hand warmers come in various shapes and sizes, making them easy to carry around in a pocket or bag. Ocoopa provides excellent rechargeable hand warmers that also work as portable power banks, enabling you to charge other devices. These hand warmers come with various heat settings, allowing you to control the temperature to your preference.   Save on fuel: Fuel costs can be a significant expense on an RV camping trip. To save on fuel costs, plan your route ahead of time and choose the most fuel-efficient route. Keep your RV well-maintained, ensure tires are properly inflated, and avoid speeding, as these factors can impact fuel efficiency.   Reduce energy consumption: Energy costs can add up quickly when RV camping. Consider using LED lights, which are more energy-efficient than traditional bulbs. Use natural light during the day to avoid using lights. Also, unplug electronics when they are not in use to save on energy consumption. Rent instead of owning: If you only plan to go RV camping once or twice a year, consider renting an RV instead of owning one. Renting an RV can be a more affordable option than owning, as you only pay for the time you use the RV.
    • Speaking of birds. Here is a grouse that was out along the side of the driveway this afternoon. I am getting ready to go out and look for the northern nights. I missed them last night.
    • turkeys on the left..swans to the right.........sounds like a tune i heard a bunch of times!!!!!!!!😆
    • Mostly sunny for us but yah a few to the north.   Turkeys on the right and swans on the left though.  Just starting to pour in for the night.   Too bad the phone wants to focus on the foreground too much, even after touching the screen where I wanted it focused.  Just a nice night anyway.
    • yup same here, looking cloudy now
    • Hoping we can see a bit of em tonight.  We don’t get the alerts - just the pics from the night before.  If we don’t get tipped off, we miss out.  Early to bed, early to rise types.
    • Nice!   I started getting alerts on my phone early last night. I thought about driving north but passed on it because I needed to be up early this morning. Turns out I could have taken a 10 minute drive to Bde Maka Ska to see them. They were everywhere last night.
    • 👍 dont miss or you;ll stick that mailbox!!!!!😆   monday nigth i was driving back from St CLOUD at dusk, right by Rockville there were 6-7 deer walking 2 abreast down the grant in aid snowmobile that runs in the ditch!!!!! looked pretty cool. bet there plain tired of the deep snow!!!!!!
    • Out checking lake landings for some ice fishing and found a new Bow spot for next fall!  7 of them all in a line coming down a dirt road. And 3 more eating on a bare hill side. 
    • My daughter just texted and said they were awesome up in Alexandria. Cant see anything here in Arizona.
