    Don't get me wrong, I truly do enjoy ice fishing. But give me a break - we have had snow up the wazoo this year. Had it relatively easy the last few previous winters, but this year has been the kind of winter I remeber as a kid. Got so much along the driveway, we're running out of places to pile it.
    :eek:oooh:

    It will be ice-out soon enough. Am definately looking forward to that!
    :wink:

    Has anyone been doin' good ice fisning lately??

    OHHHH I am beyond ready! I am so sick of this white stuff... I am so sick of this cold weather... It has to be hard on the wild life... I know this winter not only has brought out the blues but also crunching the pocket book.. is it ever going to end?? I pray please god let it end tomorrow... bring the sun out, melt all this white crap and put me in a blind chasing a turkey or on the river waiting for a fish and listening to the camp fire crackle. Amen

    I agree totally. Winter usually doesn't get to me,but this time it has.I am so ready to go fishing I'm about half nuts. My downstairs neighborlady who is 80 years old,she called up to tease me and get me to laugh by saying she has a 5 gallon bucket that I could fill up with water and then set acrossthe room from it and practice with my new catfishing rod and reel to see how many tomes I could hit the bucket.Yes Spring come on,and lets please not have a cold windy rainy damp Spring. I want nice moderate temps out. Sister Pat:crazy::crazy::roll_eyes::big_smile:

    Yeah I'm really getting tired of it.
    It just seems this year is so much longer than normal.
    Don't know how the folks that have terrible winters like northern Minn stay sane.
    I'm getting so tired of being indoors.
    Hang in there its gotta be spring sometime.

    PS cya at Keokuk in july

    Come on now and quit your whining, it's only the first part of Febuary. You need to have cold weather on Valentines Day, makes your sweetie cuddle up a might closer. Might be your only chance. LOL Later Andy

    It's been a long winter for me, I was ready for spring in late November. Got my last deer and was ready for turkey season. I keep telling people who complain about the winter weather that we wanted this type of weather all summer, now that it's winter we want summer all winter, go figure. Just a thought.

    The first couple/three times it snows is ok. A signal that winter has "officially" arrived. It's when the pretty white crap keeps on coming & piling up is when it gets to be a drag.
