    anyone gotten out in the blizzardlike conditions so far this month?? I need a fix bad!!! GMR is frozen up tight topped with 6" of snow. Looks like it will be at least another week before the temps give us a break.....Shack nasties are setting in....Cant take much more of this, need to get the boat out...I stockpiled some shad this fall and looks like Ill be using it in May if this weather keeps up, Someone please post a report...:crazy:

    Not in our little john boats, In the summer is one thing, but in the frigid water temps we have now, a swamping of the boat could very well be fatal. If I had a bigger boat and a job, I might consider it....:roll_eyes:
    Good luck Matt, I cant wait to hear all about it. Oh yeah, hopefully the temps will be above 15 for you guys:eek:oooh:

    I'm also looking forward to fishing in Madison on the 17th. Sure ain't no place up here to fish. Did try that ice fishing thing the other day. But I was too tired to fish after breaking enough ice to get the boat launched. :smile2:

    Check out Mike Fisherman's post for the last few days. He is doing pretty well on the Great Miami right now
