I'm ready for the long rods!!! I enjoy ice fishing, but not as much as summer and softwater fishing.
So... to all of the ice fishing nuts- better get out quick because the clock's a tickin'!

Chad,

I hear ya! Got everything a guy needs to go icefishing anywhere but when it comes to open water, I'm standing on shore. Maybe I'll take the duck boat out on Mille Lacs this summer wink.gif

Yep its going to get real messy now. Ice fishing is always fun, but you cant beat openwater and warmth. Already spending a bunch on Lake MI tackle -- again. Imagine what we all spend chasing these fish year round! Till next ice season.

today after work i thought i would go out to catch a few fish for supper. the first few steps look to be tricky but thought i can make it. 6 or 7 steps later the water is very cold in my boot standing on the ice, only wet just above the knees. my son yelled thats why he put on his waders, smart kid. i still out fished him 15 to 6,nice perch. you got to love late ice

    • 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?  😉
