Is it over??
« on: Feb 07, 2019, 07:33 AM »
 What is your opinions? Is this warm up and rain gonna make the season short this year or will we be back out there doing what we love. I really hope it is not over. I finally talked my father back into ice fishing again this season and our schedules have not been able to mash up. It has been over 12 years since he has been on the ice. Would really love to get him on some fish!!!

Stick, I don't know about McKean County, but I expect the ice to be OK here in NEPA, particularly, Susquehanna, Wayne, and northern Pike counties as well as other counties in the northern latitude.  Should have a report after Saturday.  Hope you and your dad get out together.  Special times.

Thanks, I am more worried about the edges. The ice was a pretty solid 8" Tuesday on the Kinzua res, but the edges were getting sloppy. It doesn't help that the water level keeps changing so the ice keeps shifting.

SW/SC Pa I'm worried it's over I'm going to do some looking tomorrow but more rain coming in tonight. Probably have to make a few runs up north before the end of the month.

I think we're toast here in SC.........could have handled the warm couple days if we followed it with a good cold wave but not with the rain and warm temps. Pretty sad. I remember conventional school of thought 40 years ago being first ice and last ice was the best action. That used to mean first week of January through first week of March. Now first and last ice are 7 days apart.

Might well be over for the Southeast, however I just looked at the long term for Mt. Pocono and the call is for ice making weather right into March starting Sat. Bear in mind that is just a guess by so called experts.

Hell no!...

When did the Krauts bomb Pearl Harbor???  :o
Fish the PAK tonight before the rain arrived. A good solid 12in's at Sterling Marine but the shoreline is taking a beating. Once the cold snap hits the shoreline will improve.

It's a German joke. Cat. He is a army ranger so I know he knows history of war like when the French fought the Indians. In 1812. Oh ya this season has a fork in it. Unless you go north of the border

It's never over till the fat lady sings........ she's on stage.... I remember we had ice before Christmas for a week them it melted and came back in March. Yea March I fish a couple days before Christmas and 3 days the first week of March. This ice fishing getting to iffy in western pa. Unfortunately ice fishing may become long journeys to far away waters. Devil's lake anyone?

The cold temps coming up starting tonight here in the Northeast will tighten the ice back up.

Not sure if people are familiar with the Uncle John's Creek cam on elk Creek in Erie. Well it went from high flowing muddy water to an iced up creek still flowing pretty good. That was just over night. Ice forming that fast on flowing water is keeping my hope up that these lake will lock up nice and tight quickly. Sure we'll be fine for a while
