  2. WOOHOO!!!!

    We were catching gills yesterday as fast as we were at Presque Isle last year. It was a ball. Hopefully, we'll get a better freeze this year. I hope before Christmas!!!

    all i can say right now is i hope its a DRY and cold winter. That snow really screwed things up as far as im concerned and those dang warm spells really tarnished/temporarily ruined the season. Im looking forward to this upcoming year because i dont have to spend a penny on anything, except bait and line and i would love to have an underwater camera. :eek:

    i reiterate..... DRY DRY DRY DRY and cold winter....

    nice to see some activity in my favorite forum. ;)

    lol bucket sitter :p thats just there to keep the eyes from icing up! :rolleyes:
     
  7. Hey hardwater I love ice fishing as much as anyone but lets not rush it to much, I still need the fall for my deer season then we can get all the ice we need.
     
  8. I had lunch with a fellow hardwater fan last week and we both said the same thing....we are halfway there. I have kept this to myself, when its the 1st week in June and we are finally getting some good weather most people look at you funny or with outright hostility when you start talking about ice.

    hey geowol, gander mountain had to jump through some hoops to get me a trap pro (which i love by the way)

    better to let them know what you want early so you can get set up with what you need.

    good thing i let them know what i wanted early last year, i had mine in november i think. if i would have waited much longer i wouldnt have been able to get one.

    for some reason, although they are listed as the clam/trap dealer, they did not carry a few of each model, but did have about 10 each of maybe half the line-up.

    trap pro was not one of them, they had to get one from one of their minnesota stores or something.
     
  14. Thanks Hardwater
    I missed out on a sale at Thorne Bros. http://thornebros.com/
    They had their pro on clearance thought I would wait and missed out
    going to start stocking up now on those rattlin spoons for the slob perch on
    the isle
    ice on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
