I agree. As the temperature approaches (and exceeds) 90*, I can't help but think how nice 5* below actually is.

No it's not you hanson. Fall is coming, it won't be long now. I get nervous and sick to the stomach when I think about first ice. I can't wait.

I still call a frozen lake the "normal state of being" for a lake.

I love the cold!

Dang it, Matt. Just when I had accepted the notion of several months until ice, you have to go and post something like that.

I should know better than to read the ice fishing forum in July.

It's people like you that cause riots smile.gif.

The other HSOforum I frequent, on their ice-fishing forum I was tellin' people that I wish summer would skip over us and that the lakes would freeze over immediately. That was right after our first mid-80's days.

After seeing "The Day After Tomorrow", I was hoping the next ice-age would hit so I could go ice fishin' all year!

You sure couldn’t tell from this forum that it's only the first week of August.

This forum used to be sunk down to the bottom of the pile during the summer months and would lie dormant until fall.

Like my old boss used to say "It's making ice somewhere".

Thought I heard it was 28 the other night in Embarass or somewhere near there. It's coming.
The only good thing about warm weather is girls at the beach.

I hibernate in the summer. I come out to play in October. I've been watching ice fishing videos trying to keep cool.

Mayfly, you gonna join in the celebration of walking on water with us?

I think we should have a great big FM Ice-Fishing gathering as soon as the ice is thick enough to get out on. Have a huge celebration. Yay! Can't wait!

I'm even looking at ice-fishing stuff on hsolist already.

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
