Warm vacation ideas

Recommended Posts

Don't worry, I still have the fever. Just looking ahead to later on this winter when the wife is tired of me being gone fishing.( 40-50 overnights on the ice plus I made the mistake of ordering a new shack without first selling the old) Seemed like the best forum to post this on. Looking for Caribbean or Central America (not Mexico) or northern South America. Must have beach and snorkeling. Like to keep the flight under 6 hours. Been to Jamaica, St. Thomas, and Curacao. Will give more info on these if anyone requests. Looking to keep it in the range of $2500-3000 for airfare and room for 7 day/nights. Go ahead and fire away with good and bad trips. Don't think we'll be steeping on the toes of any of Rick's customers.

I know a few people who go to the Dominican Republic all the time and love it. Great food, drink, sun, fun, and a decent price. Something a little different so I thought I'd share. I've been to Hawaii and that's awesome. I usually blow my vacation time up north fishing so this about all I can say! Try talking the wife into a week-long ice-fishing trip at LOTW!! wink.gif

Is this going to take place while there is still ice? Make deal with her, you can fish until ice out, and then go to the overly warm spot so she can work on her tan just before summer here.

Dominican is out. All the resorts there are all inclusive. We've done the numbers at other resorts and we can't possibly eat and drink that much. Would like to hear more about Costa Rica. It is on our list along with Belize for future trips. No go on putting off the trip. I fished URL last year until a Tues. and was called back to work the next Mon.

If I were you, on the main lake that you fish, I would put a big hot tub on it. She would be warm and have a great view. Fish On

Cozumel is definitely my favorite. Sure it's Mexico, but it has a different feel and better people than the mainland. After that, I'd vote for Grand Cayman or St. Thomas. Cayman is more expensive, but the snorkling makes it worth it.

Can I go too?

    • Going off your description I think you’ll be fine leaving a small dock in over the winter.  Anything that would happen shouldn’t be a major disaster.  Keep the deck above the water line.
    • I'm no bird expert, but I'd like to think one of those big neon signs that lights up orange with "OPEN" on it, would help!!
    • Swap the wild bird seed for sunflower chips. Goldfinches love it!
    • Probably 10-15 years. At least.
    • At first glance, I was going to ask if the circus came to town.  LOL.    Really, there is a bird visible there in the photo.    How long has this arrangement been in place?  I ask, since it does take awhile for the birds to find the new feeders.  
    • Another summer with few birds. Anybody see any problems with this feeder assortment? I have 1 or 2 Oriole pairs when I had dozens last year. I have a couple catbirds. I have nuthatches galore like everyone. Purple finches are still around. Also have cardinals like last year. I did have 1 Indigo Bunting but no neat/unusual visitor birds even passing thru. More red-wing black birds than before. No hummers. No goldfinches. No grosbeaks.  I've read house sparrows chase things away and I do have a quite a few but not infested by any means. Lots of blue Jays. Very few of the assorted bigger blackbirds. Haven't seen a cat prowling around hardly all year either. Feeders are kept well stocked (safflower,thistle, premium wild bird seed, black sunflower, grape jelly, & hummer juice) and clean with fresh seed but none of my favorite birds I mentioned. That PVC pole hasn't had a squirrel figure it out for at least 2 years and the couple that did aren't talking. Is this too much too close together? Any suggestions?
    • Dang...  I just passed through Ely on Sunday and glanced at the store, thinking about him.  Quite the character.  No more rides in the Pope Mobile. 🙁   Rest in Peace Sir Maki.   Thanks for posting @leech~~
    • The steep sides on shore continue and drops off pretty fast.  A good peecentage of the pond is 8-10.  I saw one spot that was 11 foot.     The neighbor says it has springs and it took a bit longer to get walkable ice than it should have considering the size.  I had been out on a couple smaller metro lakes last winter, figured it had to have been frozen pretty good.  Two steps on the pond and fell right through. It didn't seem to suffer from any winterkill last winter.  It doesn't get a lot of weeds.     Still working on a fish survey.  I can confirm that there are big goldfish and bullheads.  I have seen some pretty good size swirls around dusk making me wonder if there aren't a few bass in there.
    • How deep is it?  May be they would care if you drop a few bass and sunnies in it?  😉
