Yup,
I'm cool with snow or a little rain but with wind really sucks the fun out of it.

I was told it keeps the rookies home..I hate the wind the most as well..15 today ..just want a day without a coat..stay safe today
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Unfortunately, inconsistent weather is now the new norm.  Can't control it - just have to adapt and adjust, but I do miss the days of fishing well into April in a T-shirt and picking through three plus feet of ice.

Fair enough, that's what I say to my pops in Florida when he asks how much snow we got up here... but it don't beat 33 degrees no wind and a little light snow while the pressure drops... One weekend of that is all I ask.

We've had some pretty nice days I've thought, I've fished every week since the week after thanksgiving, there been wind and cold,  but I never felt like I suffered greatly,,  I think last weekend was last straw for most, I took today and tomorrow off to regroup a little, I'll fish Monday, I like the looks of the forecast.....I predict a "white out" and not from the snow.

I hear ya...I was mainly complaining about the ďchoresĒ the ice and snow bring...I donít suffer while fishing but the chores beat me up so I dont feel like going fishing...a catch 22.

Wel all need to vent, I work maintenance for a living, I spent last Thursday up on a flat roof in 6"  of water and slush shoveling drains, every day it's something weather related. ..like I said... we ALL need to vent.

To weigh in here... this season has had some of the best conditions I've seen in a while...tons of ice (I'm on winnisquam) not a lot of snow so we can be super mobile .  Wind..yup   that sucks and it's a huge nuisance...but would u rather sketchy ice or 4 ft of snow to deal with?  But def agree...I'd rather 0 temp and no wind vs 40 degrees and blowing 40.....

 ;D :tipup:  I'm having a great ice fishing year.   Today is perfect with sun and calm.   I get to choose my days so rain, heavy snow and howling wind find me in the reading in the sun room.  But if its just windy I plan ahead and go to a lee shore that will be in the sun morning or afternoon.  I do look  forward to March sun and temps above freezing.
No complaints here.  Hey,  its winter and we have lots of ice and no snow ;D

Careful now, Frank. You're starting to sound a little like John Lennon?  :whistle:
Hope you had good luck today, Bill. And, you too Wayne if you head out tonight. Sounds like good conditions for night time crappie hunting.
