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

    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!
