I just dont get this excited about spring fishing

Recommended Posts

you have spring, summer, fall, fishing. you only have a small window of time on the ice, depending on where you live. I know its more work for the most part, but theres somthing to be said about planning a trip on the ice. waiting, gear spread out. watching the weather, buying that new lure, give me ice.

Robert, you sound like my father.. For those who have met my dad, you know how much he loves the ice. When I was younger I asked him why this was... His answer.. "Because its always 80 degrees, no waves and no wind in a fish house."

I love the midwest for its seasons, and I too look forward to ice fishing as much if not more than most! If I were to say though, I think the shortest season is always the fall fishing.

For me, any kind of fishing is a great day to be out on the water ... hard or soft. Nothing better than being outdoors with a rod in your hand.

I enjoy open water fishing too but I have that special place in my heart for ice fishing. I get more excited about ice fishing than I do about open water fishing.

lol that is kinda nice, with no waves. Im with you I love ice fishing, and Im starting to think that there is more people that like ice fishing than boat fishing for a few reasons, there is almost double the amount of posts in the ice fishing area comparied to the open water, and even in july there always seems to be almost the same amount of people looking the ice fishing area compaired to the open water area

I think I don't get as excited for the opener is because it's not normally the best time to be out. I've found that a couple of weeks into the season is usually better but first ice always seems to be good fishing.

I definatly fish more on open water then I do on the ice ,,,I may only get on the ice a dozen or so times a season and what dissapoints me more then lack of fishing action is that any one can get on the lake when its frozen and the site of the trash and debris I see left on the ice kinda turns me off to the sport and thats left by the 2%ers (definatly not left by any FMers)

Good Luck to those who get out on early ice

    • Chops, brats, asparagus, onions and mushrooms in the foil and a little Malbec
    • Shrimp boil in foil packets on the pellet grill. Potatoes, corn, Andouille sausage, shrimp, lemon slices, butter and Cajun seasoning. I usually use some Old Bay in my shrimp boil but I was out and didn't know it until I started putting it all together.      
    • Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

    • Looks like a great summer time meal! 
    • That was my wife taking a Snapchat vid of the kids, my daughter took that picture..  steak night is probably my favorite night, but taco night is a close second lol
    • At the all-star break and man did I blow it with the predictions lol.   Other than Rosario and Escobar not really much to get too excited about.   Nice home-stand before the break but its already been a big disappointing season. Of all the late 90''s  teams that were just awful and then the recent  90+ loss teams repeatedly over and over, this years team has to be the most frustrating of them all. Definitely a regression.   Buxton/Sano I dont want the team to give up on them but good grief. After some progress last year I think everyone was expected big things from both of them. I would say give up on them but players like these always go on to shine somewhere else when the Twins let them go.   Mauer has been ok, nothing great but good to see him back hitting again after his stint on the DL.   Morrison dug himself too big of hole to get out of with a terrible start at the plate. A few signs of power but not enough.   Dozier is losing millions with a bad first half. So much for him signing a big deal somewhere else and the Twins getting something for him if he is traded.   The new pitchers Odorizzi and Lynn haven't been great. Gibson has been better than expected but too bad he cant get any run support he has pitched well all year. I like Berrios, good young pitcher still making improvement. Its too bad Santana hasn't been able to get back up and contribute yet.   I hope they don't make any foolish decisions and trade and try to make a run. They don't have a chance at the wild card and even though Cleveland isn't completely dominating I don't see the Twins overtaking them in the division.
