Ice Fishing Blues

Post by HANGEYE »

Saturday morning as the sun was riseing I looked out at my black truck and ........ the top was white, covered with frost. =D> I was going to go fishing tomorrow but there will be too much wind for my little 14 footer. Now if the lake was covered with ICE [-o< , the wind would not be a factor.
There are more fish taken out of a lake than ever were in it.

Yep, it will not be long. Hard to imagine right now with highs in the upper 80s where I am at this week, but before long it will be October deer season and ice fishing in about December here in my part of Idaho. Always looking forward to this time of year!

We have local bait shop having a 2 day icefishing seminars by some of the best known names in ice fishing in 2 weeks. Great event and gets one anxious about getting on ice hearing these guys. Plus get free goodies from vendors. Meals are even included in ticket prices. :D

I would post video of the speakers talking about event, but bait shop is not advertiser on this site and do not think I should.

However here are some of the speakers I can look forward too:
Brian Brosdahl, Jason Mitchell, Tom Neustrom, Brad Hawthorne, Larry Smith, Ted Takasaki, Jason Durham, Dennis Kassube,Matt Johnson, and Teeg Stouffer.

Venders on-hand include Vexilar, Clam, Strikemaster, Marcum, Jiffy, Frabill and others!!

Agreed on the cruel and unusual, it was 65 in the twin cities yesterday, with thunderstorms last night. But this morning it is a balmy 30 with ice pellets. Wonder if we will have ice before the St Paul Ice show the last weekend of November.

With the warm and windy weather things opened back up. However cold front come in and to stay below 30* with evening in single digit temp thru this week at least, so would not doubt on ice again mid to end of week.
