Heading in the right direction
« on: Nov 06, 2019, 06:43 AM »
The temp was 31 when I left home at 5:45 this morning. Forecast is below freezing nights this weekend, then several days of mostly below freezing temps next week.  Yeah baby! :tipup:

Trust me, I've been checking almost daily for local and up at my cabin in NH. Might just be a dream but I'd love to see a big cold snap come through and be on ice Thanksgiving weekend.  ::)

Ya never know, it's happened before. If I recall correctly, maybe 2010 or 11 some guys got out in CT?

Just saw a picture from just over the mass line into NH. Guy was holding a piece of ice about an inch thick. We've got some cold air coming the next 4 days or so. I don't think it's enough to lock anywhere in ct solid enough but depending on what I see around here I might have to make a trip to my cabin in NH on Sunday  ;D

Nice, early Happy Birthday Ravo. Not to be Johnny Raincloud, but be careful if you find ice.  :tipup:

Oh absolutely. Going with a buddy to check it out so I won't be alone which is always nice. The itch just set in hard, so we gotta at least go look. High elevation and cold 🤞

My guess is you will get on. I'm on the coast and it was 18 when I left the house.

Pretty cool at my house the last few days. There was skim ice on a local pond I passed on my way to work. I know it will be a while though.

I am headed to NH for Thanksgiving as well and hope there will be enough ice to fish, I know of some small water that might be fishable by then if this weather keeps up.

I checked a small pond in Enfield on my way home. Only about 3/16 thick but it's definitely gonna make some ice tonight

Checked that same pond this morning. Damn near an inch thick. I don't think this weekend will be quite enough to make it safe here in town but it's a beautiful thing to see this early in the year

Made the hour trip up there this morning. Mostly open water at my cabin. Having a backup plan in place we drive and checked a bunch of smaller ponds in the area and found one that was barely fishable. Set up but didn't get even a single flag in 4 hours so we called it a day. Even though we didn't catch anything it feels great to say we fished on hard water mid November
