2.5 inches of ice, why aren't you fishing????????????  You look like a skinny man, I am sure the ice will hold well enough.
Real fisherman don't yield to the weather.

That's great Grump. We've been getting too warm of weather the past week now. The ice that was frozen over on the pond was wide open for the last few days, and just this morning is frozen over again. Calling for highs around 11 C this weekend.

Cheers,

Where in the world are you?  Don't need specifics but I need to move.  Do I need to give up U.S. Citizenship to be there?  Unreal.  Wish I was you.  (Really though, where are you?)

Let's just say that Grump lives next door to a Mr and Mrs S. Claus.  ;D In fact, I think he may be one of his workers ;)

FingerLakes Fisher - No, you don't have to give up U.S. citizenship to live in Canada or to become a Canadian citizen, but you do have to fill out a list of qualifications to enter as an immigrant, and then there's no guarantee you'll get immigrant status.  In the last U.S. election there were about 300,000 Canadian Americans eligible to vote, and both the Reps. and the Dems. had people up here signing up eligible voters.

I don't think there's any questions about ice fishing on the list of qualifications though, so that may not be a valid reason to move to Canada.  But you can come visit us anytime, and we'll treat you to some great fishing!

So you didn't crack out the gear on Otter Gmoe?  I'm disappointed...I used to think you were hard core  ;)

Too much stuff going on this weekend to get out to check things out around here...drove along the Assiniboine today and there was lots of ice floes though. 

Well, we'll see what the weather holds...probably be out in 2 weeks anyway, unless we get a bit of a cold snap and next weekend works out.

BTW, the Legend is getting the winterizing treatment this week...sigh.

I went out today too near where i live got to the spot and it was ice covered so i hit it with the spud ha ha right through 2''.I should have prolly left right  :-\ well i didn't carefully slowly walked about 10 ft from shore chipped two holes and baited up and got my two lines down the holes and sat very still from 9:30 till noon by that time i had a puddle under me and it was warming up so i carefully made my way back to shore and went and casted into the open lake until 2 then i went back on to my first spot and fished again for a couple hours i did manage to catch a 7' pike ;D not a monster but my first fish through the ice this year i decided to leave after the ice started cracking when i set into the little pike. :o :o
