My 7 yr. old son and I have the fever.  We have reported our condition to the authorities (wife/mom) and they (she) are very concerned that something is seriously wrong with us.

  It's been a pretty good ride so far! Lots of good company, posts, and maybe just a few laughs to help us all get by! We're getting there one day at a time! ;D

I charged all the batteries again about a week ago.
Waxed the poles on the flip over.
I have a few small ice fishing projects to get done still.

Bring on the ice !

After all the heat this summer brought, the last couple cool days have started giving me the fever.  I started by coming back to the shanty to see what I missed the last few months, then I started working on some projects for the upcoming season.  My wife asked me what I was doing, when I told her, she said I was crazy, that icefishing was months away.  I told her I needed to be prepared.  She just shook her head and walked away.  Yep I got the fever.

I got it pretty bad! Now it's cooling down so I'm REALLY getting the itch! It doesn't help having the shack parked in the yard!

You just have to look back at all of the previous posts on here to see that it has been one long, hot summer and that everyone is hoping, and some praying, for a decent ice season this winter after the fiasco many of us had with ice conditions last winter!!  :icefish:

For us down here, it was not as bad as last year. We at least got some fishable ice and I did get out several times!! I'm hoping for an improvement over even that!! :icefish:
