Ah, spring is in the air. The only thing better than seed catalogs for spring fever is fishing stories. I'm setting here in the middle of a blizzard and this fishing talk has me feeling much better.  :thumbs: Thanks!

Temps here just went from 44f to 12f. My Harley gets a new tire this week. I NEED spring to show up. Stay warm and safe in your storm.

Got an E-mail from a friend. Let's go Ice fishing he says. Never tried it before so what the heck, sure. Hope it warms up as I could use a fresh Perch meal. :D

Chris, Ice fishing is a lot of fun if you stay warm.  

 

Does your friend have a shelter to fish from or will you be sitting in the open.

 

I fish in the open.  It's sometimes brutal if there is a lot of wind.  Dress warmly and have fun.  

 

I fished at camp this weekend.  I only caught two, but I enjoyed the solitude.  Good luck.

I hope so. He has been doing this for years. He has one of those 8 wheeled things with tracks on it (Argo?) and a bunch of equipment. Told him I would pay the bills if he would get us on top of some perch.  :D

Fishing is only a good excuse to drink beer and go to hunting stores.

Ice fishing is our favourite, and we have better than 3' of ice now on Tobin Lake, will have to put the extension on the auger soon. Good fishing, everyone!

The first two I'm familiar with but turtle is still on the bucket list. Understand they are very good to eat if prepared right.

My mom would make stew out of a snapping turtle. Those were interesting to butcher. Mom would soak the meat in a brine overnight and for a while the meat would be in the kettle jumping.

There is a trough 200' from our dock where the pickerel travel. Those are walleye to you folks in the banana belt. I don't tinker a lot with projects in the warm weather as we prefer fishing,  or just holding down the dock.
