In my neck of the woods the next 10 day forecast calls for 9 days above freezing and 7 of those days the nites are above freezing,with lots of rain. Close to 60 degrees a few of those days also SO I think I'm done and gona put away my ice gear also and wait for some open water which shouldn be too much longer. I think the Fat Lady is about to sing. But I hope I'm wrong!!!!

Put it away then got it back out and now it is away for the season. Managed to get out 12-14 times. Been a great season with lots of action most days and a few no so good. If you do venture out stay on top and be safe everyone!
If you think your going to have a bad day you will seldom disappoint yourself!

It's getting close, really close.. 

The gear is on standby in the garage all ready to go just in case a refreeze should happen.... But it's getting dustier and dustier and Springtime gets closer and closer....   
Like was mentioned.......  Channel Cats on the Susquehanna and kayaks on the open water is right around the corner...   

No ice pouting here... just waiting for the change of seasons and scenery....   ;D

Northeast looks like it will be fine, but here in the far Southeast we might be done. Sunny and 53 now with no real cold weather in sight. :P

Well it was still go around Mt. Pocono yesterday, and I'm sure everything is now covered with snow, but certainly fishable. Unfortunately no real cold in sight, so time to at least clean up everything and reorganize, and dry up the mess from the snow. Oh and sharpen the Wusthoff.

Im in the process of putting my stuff away. I am done for the season unless we get some freaky cold snap. I have been catching some decent gills up to 8" open water fishing. Kept some today & on thursday. It is not ice fishing but I am catching fish & not driving 100 miles to catch nada !

I'm slowly (and begrudgingly) putting my gear away. A good hit on Sat. and a nice meal of crappie again tonight; already breaded and cooked. ;) No real cold up North till around the beginning of March but hey; if I get the call I can drag my stuff out easily enough. Be safe if you're going out; 60 degrees and then rain up North doesn't look too promising.

Gonna put some items away.  Flip over, Jaw jackers, tip ups, extra graph all getting put away tomorrow.  Still will have easy access to other gear if ice remains.  Started open water fishing Sunday and caught 24 crappies on plastics.

Finished putting my stuff away yesterday :'( I guess now its time to get the trout and bass rods ready and spooled up with fresh line. Also have to get the kayak down and rigged back up for bass and crappie. As much as I enjoy ice fishing I enjoy warm water fishing even more so its not really a bad thing my season is done ;) I'm also pretty pumped to try surf fishing this summer when we head to the beach with the family, I've never done it before. Here's to hoping for a good winter again next year!

Getting my stuff wrapped up for storage as well.   Fly fishing the Delaware will be my next venture.   Usually start in mid-April.   Sometimes earlier depending on water levels and temperatures.  Fishing the salt is a blast.  I've been fly fishing OCNJ for about 12 years.   My personal best was a 36" - 14lb weakfish.  Also caught quite a few stripers (biggest was 32"), and blues.  Still waiting for that 20lb striper!  Believe it or not, I catch a fair number of flounder on my fly rod.  Biggest was 21". I'll be down there the second week of June.   Can't wait!

Put gear away yesterday as I think we're done in my neck of the woods.  Getting ready for some walleye fishing on the mighty Mississippi.

As much as I didn't want to admit it, I have been slowly putting my gear away.  After this weekend I'll pack away the rest of the big stuff but my season has been over for a couple weeks.  Just keep dragging it out with sorrow.  Very enjoyable season nonetheless, can't wait for next year!
