General Ice Fishing Chit Chat / Re: 9:45 on a Tuesday..
« Last post by tomturkey on Today at 08:38 AM »
Oh what a relief it is. 57* when I got up. I had to shut off the fans during the night. We still have not had a good rain.

ww You should have been with me this spring. YOU might have gotten rid of your fear of snakes. I noticed a blue racer snake sticking out of my burn pile. It was cold enough that it was semi dormant. It let me pet it. My son saw it out of the pile a few days later. He said it was almost 5 foot long.

The only time a snake scared me was when our only venomous snake, Massasauga, rattled at my feet while I was trout fishing. I played Superman and jumped the  creek in a single bound. I could not find it when I went looking for it. I I do not understand why I was worried about it as I had hip boots on.

Marv You can keep those +100 degrees temps out there. The wife's two sisters have moved to Fla. The want us to move down there. NO WAY! I could not stand the heat in the  summer. If it was not  for that I would move as I like the FLA governor.

Time  to get some lawn work done before it warms up.

Morning all,

IFF......good to hear you're settled for the moment  :thumbsup:  good luck on the water  :flex:

MrC.....glad you were able to attend the game  :clap:  nice that things are starting to return to "normal"  :thumbsup:

FH4......enjoy the down time and water therapy  :whistle:

Eddie....congrats on the catching  :clap:  pulling the plug on working is always a scary concept, but you'd be amazed how quickly you adapt both mentally and financially, good luck with the number crunching  ;)2

IW......hope you get a chance to launch the toon sometime soon  @)

WS......glad to hear Les is visiting finally, hope he sticks around awhile  :thumbsup:  best of luck to MrsWS and sister on the fishing trip  :flex:  planning on joining them for a day or two  ???

H2L.....those speeds are insane  :o   :nono:  by the time your brain could register a hazard it would be too late to do anything about it  :pinch:

Had a few sprinkles overnight, not even enough to register in the rain gauge  ::)  seems all the rain has stayed east or north of us lately  :-\  think we've had less than 1/2" in the past week or so  :blink:

Have a good day. Stay safe, stay healthy.

Good morning everyone :bow:

69 degrees, may make the mid 90's later today. The big news.... Les is in town :thumbsup:

Glad to see everyone is up and firing on all cylinders :thumbsup:

Bud...some heavy duty hours on the road. Hope you are able to get on some water and get into some fish :thumbsup:

IW....once a fire gets going it's unbelievable how much other stuff you find to throw on it. Enjoy your day :thumbsup:

Eddie....Hope you get a favorable report from the union hall :thumbsup: It seems the side work just trickles in. My biggest problem is sorting out which jobs I want and which ones to pass on. I have no interest in buying bigger equipment to take on bigger jobs, so I have to decide what's left in my tank. This past couple weeks I had no interest in even looking at trees Lol.

The girls have decided to head north tomorrow for the week. It's going to be quiet around here :whistle:

Hope you all have a good Saturday :thumbsup: Stay safe and keep healthy.

Good Morning Jeff, H2, Bud, Morning Everyone,
  Pretty steady rain falling here and 56*, suppose to end within an hour, high of 70 today.

  Jeff...sure was a nice day to spend outside yesterday, sounds like the staining is moving along well for you, nice! Good luck with the lift, hope everything works out with that, they sure come in handy!!  :thumbsup: 
  H2...definitely a good time to stay off the water with the dragsters running around! Couldnt imagine what going over a 100mph in a boat must feel like...think Ill stick with my Jonboat and electric trolling motor for now!  ;D  Enjoy the company today.   :thumbsup:
  Bud...glad you had a safe trip, get some rest and best of luck with the fishing....will be looking forward to your reports!!   :clap: :thumbsup:
  Steve...glad you had a chance to attend the game, good sized crowd! Congratulations to Wallkill on their victory!   :clap:   
  Dave...the warmer temps and rain should get that ice off soon, well be anxiously waiting to hear when the launch is ready!!  :clap: :thumbsup:
  FH4...hope those problems you had to deal with all week are far behind you now...enjoy the weekend with your family now!   :bow: :thumbsup:
  OS/Wally...thank you,  things are looking to go just that way at the moment!   ;)2 :thumbsup:

  Caught up on all the lawn work yesterday and like Jeff, had a nice fire getting rid of a bunch of old lumber and some pallets I had hanging around.    Granddaughter has a T-ball game scheduled at 10am, but I believe that will be canceled, the field will be way to wet.
  Was speaking to my wife yesterday after we finished up all the garden and yard work and wondered how the heck we could get everything done in the past with all kids and work going on, lol. Long story short, decided to set up another meeting this week with my Union Hall and see exactly where I stand at this point with retiring. I hate the thought of losing percentages of my retirement being so close to 62, but Im reaching the point where putting on a hard hat and safety gear to go slam block in a wall all day or pour a ton of concrete in hot weather is sitting pretty low on my list now also, lol. Will keep you posted!     ;D
  Cawfees still hot if anyone needs a refill....
  Have a great day all, be safe, best of luck to those fishing!

Ok, I escaped the 90 + weather in Denver to 54* Here in Olympia. 27 hours on the road, got in 9:10 Got the boat parked, and RV  setup, replaced an electrical outlet that was where they plug their RV in.  Got a 6 hour nap and feel like I could use another one.
Will let the dust settle before figuring out what next.  Will try my hand at taking pictures between the rain drops  ;D

              Good morning H2l, ER's,
                       It's 55* and mostly clear here on my hill. ::)
                       H2l.........Just like ice fishing and Wally's theory is to stay off the lake on weekends when the crazies are out. :whistle:
                       Eddie......I'm glad you got out on the lake and caught some fish. :clap: I agree with the others and you should semi retire
              and pick up some side work till you can fully retire. :unsure: You're like me, get 2  belts so when it goes again you have it. :thumbsup:
                       Steve.....My plan is to use a brush around the windows and doors. It will be a while before I'm at that point. I ran in to an old
              friend yesterday at the grocery store and he gave me a lead on a guy that has a man lift for far less than a rental place, and the guy
              lives a couple of miles away. :clap:
                       Marv......I hope the temperature out there has lowered some so you can get outside to do whatever. :unsure:
                       Dave......Around here rain is the best thing for getting rid of that spring ice, I hope it rid of the last ice so you can get out to the cabin. :flex: :flex:
                       Fish........Good idea on going to the lake to fish and if it gets too hot you can go for a swim to cool off. :thumbsup:
                       z............I hope the water levels are receding in your area. :unsure:
                       Yesterday I got the front siding stained, it came out good. I still have the railing and deck to go, oh and the soffit and facia in the front .
                       I'm not sure if I'm going to do staining today, I have another project I want to get done. I have some old pallets and left over pieces of
              lumber that I think I'll burn up.
                       I hope everyone has a good Saturday either at work or out. Stay Safe and Healthy.

               IW

58* and some light showers.
WW and Eddie, way to go, you got some fish. I heard the water temp here is in the low 70's.

I see and HEAR the big hi-performance boats are in town for the weekend. Talked to one yesterday who told me his will hit 110/120 mph. Good weekend to stay off the lake.

Still have a few things to do before the company gets here.

Have a good day and be well...h2l

Will these do it molds only be for lead pouring or for soft plastics as well?  I started pouring my own ice plastics this season and had quite a bit of success with them.

They already have a bunch of panfish/ice plastic molds.....they just lack in small panfish lead jig molds
