But is it to early to start dreaming about open water?

I saw an In-fisherman episode tonight (open water). Man, this could be a long three months.

Being I haven't caught a fish since October 14, I'm going crazy whether it's open water or ice! crazy.gif

I am though really looking forward to the open water season this year. Got a boat last fall that I'm just itching to get out on the water again! Can't wait to get trolling rods and line counter reels to troll cranks which is something I've not really done before. My kids are getting older and more independent (which means more fishing time for me!). My son will be coming up on 4yrs old this summer, so I'm really looking forward to getting him out on a few panfish bites!

Call me crazy too, but I'm going a bit bezerk waiting for the open water season too! grin.gif

Mr. Crazy,

Yep, I've been playing with my new Shimano Calais 201A... ($380 reel I rec'd as a present grin.gif) Bring on the open water. Till then a weekly ice fishing venture will have to suffice. It doesn't cure the itch, but it helps relieve a few symptons.

Rost, They might put us in the same rubber room. I was down in KY last week and my brother just got back from his cabin at Cumberland Lake. Made me think lots about open water. I would have loved to get out there, but I was there for a funeral.

I like ice fishing, but no where near as much as open water. I've got a fishing buddy that lives just south of Orlando in the winter and he wants me to come down for some fishing in Feb. I'm thinking I'm going to take him up on it. Then the Rainy opens up in late March, some local Looper fishing on Lake Superior, maybe a trip to Redwing, then the MN opener, and were off again.

If your thinking about that you better enjoy a few more activities outside this time of year including shooting a few more of those coyotes in your neighborhood! grin.gif

    • After using tea made from chaga for awhile, I am not sure I have realized any positive health benifits. I plan to keep using the chaga tea through out the winter. I would also like to try a chaga tenture. If anyone has any tips or advice please share.
    • I would look at the camera you would want and add the proper wire for that. Most new cameras have hdmi out I believe. I wired our house with two hdmi ports for cameras. You can get long hdmi cables for pretty cheap online. Also bought little adapters and mounted to the right bench and one up front. They both run to the tv. You could do a 12V outlet near the area as well depending on how your camera is powered. I would get a forced air furnace if you are planning on sleeping in it. Ventless heaters are not safe in my opinion unless you leave a window open. I would definitely insulate it well. If you cut corners on insulation you will pay for it in propane in the long run. Depending on your ceiling height I would go with a full size 12v ceiling fan.  They are nice to have and are not too expensive.  We have recessed puck led lights from superbrightled.com they are a little pricey but I like them. They have similar options on amazon that are much cheaper. Porch lights were from super bright as well.   
    • no idea who it was, i was asked to be a mod years after that in the bird forum. 
    • I would definitely include one.     I would buy whatever you are going to use for mattresses or cushions and build the bunk around that.     I like having one....     12 volt RV lighting with LED bulbs. LED hole lights.     Do you live on a lake or is this going to be kept at a resort?  
    • I was up north more than ever this fall but with the bad fall weather and being busy with other things, I never even got a chance to walk the woods. One weekend I brought the gun and orange but it stayed in the truck because of cold, wet weather. My dog is not happy.
    • The Gammi’s are good!  This is a pic of my rig.  I just run 20 lb fluorocarbon to the snap and change hook sizes as needed and run the Gammi circles.   This didn’t turn out like I expected but this pike had my rig all the way around his lower jaw and didn’t cut the flouro.  It’s the same leader I used all last year, landing up to 30+ inchers.   And what do you do when you forget your tip up?  Make the next best thing with what you have.  A twist tie and candy wrapper was my flag for the weekend.  
    • Well let's see, there were 3 maybe 4.
    • So how was everyone’s grouse season this year?    It was tough getting out this year between work and the lousy, cool, wet fall but I did get some birds
