Summer Heat has me looking forward to Ice
« on: Jul 16, 2017, 04:36 PM »
Has anyone else started thinking about IceFishing? Does anyone have Summer fishing projects that you have been working on to prepare for the coming ice?

Should add your location to your profile .

No summer projects .....fall is way better for some shelter mods and Smitty sleds...nows the time to be looking for down hill skis at flea marts and yard sales.

Meanwhile I will be charging bateries in flashers and cameras ...looking for ice fishing deals .

Our Spring fishing season was wildly successful, so I'm still happy in the boat.  However, I did charge my MarCum lx6s this weekend.  A full battery is a happy one.

I'm sick of the heat here in mid-Ohio! Can't wait for fall and "hopefully" enough ice to fish through this winter (for more than a week!). Rods, reels, lures, gas auger and shanty are all set to go! Think SNOW!
