Great Site...newbie perspective

Recommended Posts

Wow, just found this site as I was researching portable ice shacks. When I do searches, I'm always looking forward to finding a new sites that shows a ton of responses on their forums. Right away I noticed how many were on the ice fishing forum. Decided to dive in and after almost 2 hrs of reading, I'm on the wagon. So here I post saying you all have a great site with very active members. I even noticed a popular name off one of my other favorite sites, Walleye Central. The infamous Backwater Eddy...assuming the same alias of course. This site reminds me of HotSpotOutdoors with so many active people in a local flavor. Before you welcome me aboard, I must admit I am a cheesehead by birth, but with 100% Yooper blood. Therefore, I must offer my condolences to the Vikings and come out early to say I am a Packer fan. With that said, I truly have enjoyed my, now 2 1/2 hrs, and look forward to reading more. The great people of Minnesota are the kings of ice fishing and I value your input. Thank you as I have learned a lot tonight.

Big Sky,
Welcome aboard! Plenty of cheeseheads on board here.. Just remember the Vikes really gave you guys a nice x-mas present this year grin.gif

What part of Yooper land are you speaking? I went to school in Houghton and did a lot of fishing and hunting in the U.P.

Dan,
My parents are both from Houghton. Well actually, my dad is from Hurontown. My mom grew up right across from Tech's campus. Spent many summers up there as a kid. I now own 40 acres off the Pilgrim River. Great area. This site is indeed addictive. As I left this site early, I went to some of my favorite other sites and was compelled to come back. Why I haven't heard of this before surprises me? There are so many that post here. Just a wealth of knowledge it appears so far. I got excited enough from a post about Mickey Mouse boots that I ran out to my truck to see if I had the real ones or some knock-offs. PS. Yes the Vikes did give us a HUGE xmas gift. Who would've thunk that outcome?

I agree completly, this is an exelent site. The knowledge i've learned here in the past few weeks would have taken me years to aquire. I can get reports from my local area as well as having a heads up when heading to SD or WI to see the relitives.

A hearty Thanks to the active members and staff of this site.

Pull up a chair boys! Welcome aboard. You might want to sit your wifes down now and explain a few things to them. You will be visiting the computer more often, you will be tromping off to new lakes in new places with new people, and no you dont need therapy (yet!) grin.gif.
