Can you believe it's been ten years since I got the idea to start a website dedicated to the great sport of ice fishing? We have grown from a few page site where you could email ice fishing tips in and get my local NE WI ice conditions/fishing report into this massive database of everything ice fishing. We are still growing in leaps and bounds every ice fishing season. Can you imagine the site in ten more years?

Well I havent been around for ten years ,but i have seen this site bursting at the seems since the day i signed up!! It was an incredible idea you had that i'm sure turned out to be so much more than you could have expected. Much like you, i never knew what a huge part of my life these sites would turn out to be. Every morning...every afternoon..every evening...if I wake in the middle of the night ...im browsing the forums. if i have time i love the morning rap session in chat and when ice comes evenings in the chat room are as good as sitting around the shanty!! I would like to thank you for your awesome creation we've all grown to love...my wife on the other hand is not so grateful  ;D

I would like to 2nd that one.  ;D

Back when I started ice fishing, I had no idea what I was doing and once I found this site, and the endless pages of great information. I only got better and better every year. When I started catching and posting, more and more info would flood in my head, and I couldn't wait to get back out and try something new that I read off of here.
Then next thing ya know, I got Grump, PM'ing me and chating back a forth, next thing ye know Scott and Grump, hooked me up with a Moderator status for our great state of NY.
And I've always said, "if there is anything that I can help ya with don't be afraid to PM me and I'll see what I can do for ya." Ice fishing is awesome and with this site, it keeps ya glued to the computer to see that the next picture and what great topic pops up next.  ;D
 :tipup: Fish On!
Thanks Scott for being around for 10 years and keeping a great site running.

I made up some items at cafe press with the ten year logo on it. Not sure if I'll get around to getting anything done for items in the iceshanty direct proshop, it all depends on how many cafepress items I sell. If popular enough I may get black hoodies and embroidered caps done.

As usual,  a big you da man, Scott....  keep up the good work,  I'd have to say I'm with Billditrite on how it became such a big part in my life...   It may not be tomorrow or the next day but look for a new member for the militia and an order for some of the 10th anniversary gear.... I love these sites and I am proud to support them when I can....   Thanks Scott...

Have to agree with all that's been said.  This is great site and glad I found it.  As a side note my son is going to start a web site on hunting and fishing and asked me if I could write something for it on ice fishing for someone who is just getting started.  I told him it would only take a couple seconds and wrote on a piece of paper www.icesanty.com    ;)2 ;)2

We'll see about that when they go against my Nittany Lions  :flex: on Saturday

Scott, thanks so much for creating a site where we all can come together and share just about anything as long as it is in good taste. This site is truly one of the best creations in the world, like duct tape and WD-40. Just imagine what our lives would be like without duct tape and IS :'( Whoa, I don't even want to go there :sick: I better go lay down for awhile.  This is truly one of the top sites :thumbsup: out there that I visit frequently other than firehouse.com. Keep up the good work, we all owe you a huge thanks and a big hug, on the other hand my wife wishes this site never existed at all. Well that is until I come home with fresh fish for dinner.

My daughter and I thank you :clap: 


Thanks Fishin Fireman a.k.a. Brad
