Still here.
Guessing Dec 8th for my first ice outing of the season. Small shallow protected lake that held skim ice for several days around Thanksgiving until we hit the mid 70's. Hoping for a much better ice season than the last one.

Except for the guys like me who're on the site 365, I don't expect more Huskers to show up until ice really starts to form.  Sadly, that doesn't look too promising

On the plus side, I'm still catching crappie like nobody's business on a public lake a half-hour from town.

Can’t wait to get back on the ice.   Wasn’t much activity here last year.

If I could have got away in the morning it would have worked. Noon temp was 46 and the 2 inches of ice was not liking me poking around much. Haven't been through the ice since 1979 and I intend on keeping that streak alive.  ;) Talking maybe 6 inches of snow tonight. That would help cool the lakes that haven't capped which is most of them. My little lake will be in trouble because it never lost ice.

Still check in occasionally. Waiting for freeze up like everyone else. Until then filling my spare time with bowhunting for deer and hunting waterfowl.

The NOAA extended forecast is for below average temperatures from this weekend until Jan 7...

I am crossing my fingers that they are correct

I check in on my “Home State” from time to time.  I have safe ice to fish up here in the mountains of Wyoming, but only trout by me.   I fish vicariously through you all for perch, walleye, and crappie.  KEEP posting ….. give me my “fix” !  GBR
