I'm with you, I can't wait. I'm already sick of the warmer weather and bugs.

The weathermen were talking about a possible chance of snow in western Ontario this morning. Hmmm... Won't be long now!

Don't have a boat yet, so I can't wait to have access to the lakes again. Driving me nuts! And no, the public piers don't count, too many crazies out there. Nothing like a little ice and cold to calm things down.

"Ahhhright!' It's nice to know there are birds of a feather out there! I'll take the spring, when everything shakes off the long winter and starts comming to life. The first part of the summer, with it's balmy days and lush greenery, I'll take that to!
Fall fishing, the colors, grouse hunting, it's hard to beat, but then comes first ice and it's time to get serious about the fishing!

I own and operate a lawn service, so I only get out on quality fishing trips maybe 10-12 times during the summer, I don't count short hops down to the river, or anything like that.

In the winter between plowing snow and whining about the weather, I'll probably do 30 or more trips! Once the last leaves are collected, "Bring it on!"

I am back to instructing skydiving during the summer again. Got out a 10,000 ft last Sat. and it was 19 degrees. That cold blast felt like winter.

I think you people are a little off. Spring, summer, and fall are great! Winter is not so great.

Winter IS great. I can't wait to get out on the ice again. The best part is I'll be doing it in the new house I'm building this summer.

Can't wait for winter, either. It's what keeps me feeding my sled dogs in the summer. Thinking about them hauling my fat @ss across a frozen BWCA lake looking for lake trout.

Winter is a great time to fish? Unlike the summer fishing, only the very harshest of winter weather can stop you from doing your thing.

In the summer, you can plan a trip and get rained out, the wind can whip the lake into a fury, Mesquitoes, biting flys, knats, a hatch of Mayflys, and kinds of different things can goof you up, and you can't get away from them! A well planned trip can head south in a hurry!

Sure, in the winter, a blizzard can shut you down, but how many blizzards do we usually have? Not many!

You can get away from most everything else and be comfortable doing it...just get into the fishouse! Twenty below weather? No problem, just crank the heat up a bit! The wind does'nt seem to blow for days on end in the winter, the way it does in the summer and it seems like the weathermen have an easier time being accurate with their forecasts.

At any rate, it is enjoyable year round, some say "To-mate-o" some say "Ta-maut-o" !

    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
