    I know it's a ways off, but these cooler temps have got me Jonesin (Walleyejonesin). Guess I'll get the ol' Jiffy out and lube her up. Best perform a tackle inventory too.
  2. I'm not trying to hijack your thread but where are some good places around here to do icefishing. What is the necessary equipment? I just got into fishing this past spring and I haven't had a chance to look into icefishing but it looks like a blast. Thanks

  3. Don't Forget To Look At The Hardwater Discussions Forum, I Would Post There, Plus Theres More Information There On What To Use And All There Is A Question On There Similar To Yours.
  4. Yep, it's lookin good out there... even though it'll be weeks before we're drilling holes in inland lakes in NE Ohio.

    It still feels good to get the ole juices flowin' again and start thinkin about it. I've already found myself visiting a few tackle stores and fiddlin' with my gear.

    I strung new 4 lb Stren Hi-Viz on a couple of my rods. I know it's a little too stiff, but I can atleast see it and can normally add a 2 lb leader.

    Going thru my pin-min collection and seeing what colors I'm in need of and checking what other tackle or gear I'll need to buy.

    IT FEELS GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No real warm up in the next 15 days is forcasted. Seen 5 or 6 nights it's going to be in the teens and highs not getting much above 35. Hopefully it's not too long before we get to hear the wonderful PING under our shanties!

    Don't really know you bigcrappiehammer ? But my wife says after 32 years she' glad to get me out of the house in the winter on the ice or in the summer running my charter Boat !!! Heck she even buys me some of my ice stuff !!
  10. hearttxp: Same here in my household. If I stay in the house, the "Honey-do" List magically increases.
