MN has an automatic 10 feet rule for ice fishing shelter.

I reckon for early ice it may help to keep people from parking right next to another.  However there's always that one or two knucklehead who will park and block someone or the bonehead who parks directly in the way to the entry/exit pathway.

Most of all, it's the people who are in contact with covid and still passing it along, cuz they don't care enough to quarantine themselves.

For more information read my MN nice journal

first off, I don't think many are too worried about this flu now.  so yea people will probably act normal and come say hi. if your afraid of it put up a sign or stay home. I sure don't know how you can avoid it. if you currently wear a hazmat suit to the store then you probably better wear one out on the ice too.


second.  do people regularly set up shacks closer than 6ft?  I have guys move in but most stay a bit farther away than that.  shoot I have seen fights break out when people move in to close. lol rude in my opinion to move in on people.  I find my own areas unless its a local "gathering hole".  those are mostly first ice spots though.

wear what you think you need to be"safe", but live your dang life!  and nobody else's!

OK so I have had 4 Covid test. 1 In September =Negative. 1 Last Sunday, 1 Last Friday and 1 On Tuesday. Tuesday although I never got any results from any of the last 3 The Doctor told me I have Covid. I get home and Later that day I get the results back from the Friday test. It say's Negative but if I still had symptoms to have another test. Which I did. The Friday Test was swabbing the inside of my mouth not in the Nose which I thought was weird.  I have had a Fever, Cough, Running Nose, Headache and body aches Since the 8th. Still waiting for the other 2 test's to come back. I don't fish next to anyone during Ice fishing season so no problem there.

make sure to properly account for wind direction when determining your 'distance'. If wind is blowing 25mph it would only make sense that you need to come up with some accurate equation to figure out how far the virus can blow down wind.

Get you a Bluetooth speaker. Assess the new neighbors and select a Pandora channel they probably won't like and crank it up. You may not like it either but it sure is fun watching 'em whine and finally move. Tejano is often a good choice  ::)



Turn it UP!   >:D :roflmao: :-*
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Where I fish it's rare that we have another group fishing within a few hundred yards of us.
6'? I don't think I would fish that close to another fisherman/ group covid or not!

I prefer about 40 yards from each other and that's not just ice fishing.

Like a Prairie Dog hears you shot one of his palls sticks his head up out of the hole to see what is going on. 1 little 2 little 3 little Prairie Dogs.

Did this at my Uncles ranch when I was a kid. He supplied the bullets.
