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.

    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
    • wow.....thats cool......................hmmm idea for da next bear, whenever i get drawn and get one !!!!!!!!!
    • Well no reason to come back out of the woods or off the lake ice fishing this year at noon on Sundays!  😕
    • I don't get the concept that we won't get anything in return for him.  If you are using that theory look at Kawai Leonard...San Antonio seemed to get something for a guy that everyone knew was not gonna work with San Antonio and everyone said they would only get something from the Lakers but Toronto stepped up made a play and the word is that they may be the front runner on resigning him!  Look at Paul George...he was in the same boat that he was not gonna resign with anyone and the Thunder took a chance and now they have him on the books for years to come cuz he changed his mind.  Players in the NBA seem to change every month as to what they want to do.  Get rid of Butler, get some good assets, and move on.
    • I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.
