I looked at some snow shoes today, but i know whats gonna happen, i blow a hundred bucks on them, wear them tomorrow for the derby, makes it a tad easier, then sunday it warms up and rains and i never use the snowshoes again...i just wont walk as far!  Got me three of those raffle tickets when i signed up tonight!

Yo Choo Choo and BigSunny.
       Glad to hear from you both. Yup. I am getting older and even if the brain is not cognizant, the body is ready to relent. The cold never bothers me. I can dress for anything. It is the getting to and fro that bothers me. Sad this season has developed as it has. You don't have to be old to regret the formation of the ice field this year. I am sure it has kept a lot of you younger fellas at home as well.

        At any rate, till I can get an easy ride or access by my 4 wheeler I am going to listen to my body and not my brain. I am going to act my age. I will have to consult with Tank and Wert to find out how they process this.
Conditions this year have gotten nasty JBoggey.  Better day's are coming. :) :) :)
My boots on some ice.. A line down a hole..  Some fish on the screen.. And a flag in the air !......Winter is Good !!

Fished the Elms today with my son,--first time with the new pop up shanty--just a handful of people out there--the persistent winds and snow/slush combination made it pretty brutal dragging our sled, setting up and taking down.  Caught some dink and medium-size perch on spikes/minnows at 8 feet. Lost a pike who grabbed a minnow on my ultralight and broke me off. Finally exited our toasty shack to face a heavy windy snow, and a dozen gulls closing in on our fish.  Much thanks to the guys who gave us a ride and a tow back to the lot after seeing us struggle in the knee deep snow. That gave us a second wind for the long snowy drive back. Some great folks out there!

Fished it with my daughter yesterday left out of wigwam about 7 am. The walk out was great, nice and packed only a few inches to walk through. After shoveling an area for the shanty setting up tip up/downs, caught about 6 keepers and a pile of dinks. Wind was bad, snow was bad good thing i had my daughter with me, on the drag back i was sinking upmto my knees everymstep, she could walk right on top and did most of the dragging. Didnt even have anything to turn in for the sandy creek fd derby, biggest was one 10 inch perch.  It was still a good time with my daughter.

Had a great time yesterday at the SCFD derby. My son Alex won the youth pike and my buddy Bruce won panfish king with a mixed bag of crappies and gills. Hope to do it again next year.

Tommy, nice to hear that you were able to get out Saturday, especially with the kid.  Sounds like she made the difference getting you back in to shore, we all know how that is. Unfotunately for me, that job thing keeps getting in the way of that fishing thing. Was there a good turnout for the Derby?  I'm gonna miss out the next 2 weeks as well, gonna check out the ice in FLA for a week. I'll be thinking of you and Boggey while next to the pool.   ;D ;D

Yeah, i about stroked out.  Not a lot of people fishing that I could see, as a matter of fact there was one shanty out when it started, another guy stopped me in his car and asked if the derby was still on. I didnt even go to the wiegh in, so I am not sure what the total turn out was.

My way of saying as it warms...bring a float. Its deep. Anyone ever had a problem with sleds running over tip ups on the pond? Had a close call. My buddy managed to stop him. He was that close to the shanty running through 15 tip ups. Must have been drunk because he gave him a nice pat on the back and the idiot almost fell off. I have very little respect for a snowmobile that has no gear in tow.

Greene Point. Seems that if you can brave the drag past most of the old holes you could stay drier.
