Was fishing today with bassmastermjb (MARK) and we just came back from being on the ice at OSP. I found out that Icebucketjohn's son was doing his thing this morning over at OSP after a phone conversation or two with John. So after loading up the balance of my gear...... I stopped at Marks and told him to grab his gear and that we were on our way to the ice. I've been reading his posts lately and noticed that he was in dire need of an "ICE FISHING FIX"..... to last him thru this up coming warming trend. I was amazed to count 15 fisherman at the time I stopped to look around....Ice was not threating to be on were we were......then came the rain. That quickly thinned the guys out....We continued to catch more than our share of "dinks"..but it gave (mark) a chance to shake the rust out of his system and hopefully last him.....until we get the return of really good ice everywhere. Thanks (mark) for going(you seem much better). Thanks IBJOHN for the up to date info and I was glad to meet your son. And for me( it will lessen the pain if I dont get to be back on the ice for a while. WERE THERE ANY OTHER OGF guys there during the late morning and middle of the afternoon time frame?....AND DID ANY OF YOU OTHER GUYS MANAGE TO GET YOU POST HOLIDAY ITCH SCRATCHED..........BY GOING TO ANY OTHER PLACES?...Jon SR. PS. Tomorrows ice conditions might deteriorate very quickly after tonights warm temps/rain effects....and general weather factors....CHECK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU VENTURE OUT.
