  1. Man, yesterday at the Deer Creek picnic, all DaleM could talk about was getting ready for, dare I say, ICE SEASON! He even went out and picked up a brand new Shappel shanty! I told you man, once you get it in your blood, your HOOKED!

    Hopefully, we get GREAT ice this coming Winter! Could have used it yesterday in that HEAT.

    6 months and counting..... ;)

    From a die hard bassman to an iceman. Who would have ever thought it! Yes I did do it guys. Hey after 95 degrees yesterday the cold would feel good.
    Now on to getting my aqua view set up. I figure by first ice I'll have to get a bigger truck to haul everything.
    It's all your fault CARL!!!!

  3. Glad to see we got another one Big D.

    Jerry, you will have to at least give it a try. Heck even I liked it enough to be looking forward to it, And you know I'm not one that likes cold weather. Well up until this last year I wasn't anyway. (darn ice gods!) :D

    JimG , I even surprised myself. Sowbelly is right it does grow on you. To be honest I'm not ready for ice yet, as there is a lot of good fishing to do yet. BUT!!!! At least when it does go to ice I'm still very happy. Like Carl I hope we have better ice this year. I'll bet we recruit a few more of you as well. You all know I'll be right there cheering you on.. Carl has agreed to give me Ice dancing lessons as well, now there will be two of us doing the dance :D :p
  12. Both if us dancin??? LOL! Bring on the ICE AGE!!!

    I think we'll get more guys out there. Just puts you in a different mind set. The fishing can be slow, or it can be GREAT, just like open water. One of the best things is how much fun you have going out with your buddies and sharing the experience.

    Look for a couple ice-related events this Winter gang. Presque Isle AGAIN, plus, we're working on another open tournament on the hard stuff. ;) :D
  13. I think I'm hooked and have not even been up there yet! Sounds like an awsome time, I would have loved to seen you guys frying fish out in the snow storm. I'm already sucking up to the wife for a weekend trip up there.

    I already got a new Aqua-Vu Scout.
    My nephew has the shanty,auger and vex.
    So we are ready :)

    From all of the stories, it sounded like it was a blast up at PI last year.

    But we can wait......we got some soft water to deal with now.... :D :D

    To answer that, YES we will be having outings on the "ICE" We will have another Presque trip for sure and are working on getting a few more together. We'll let everyone know. Now that Big has me hooked, I'll be right there pushing for all of you to join us :D I'll guess the number of members getting out will be more than last year. Hey, if they can take a basser and get him excited about ice, no one is safe.
  17. HA HA another one bite the dust

    George, you know how much I enjoyed it, can't wait until we can get back at it again. Well, I do want to enjoy this soft water for a while longer, but I won't be in tears when it freezes this year. See ya on the ice!

    Dale. Nice to see another one cross over lol. I prefer hard water to soft sitting in the shanty with a vex :) We'll have to head out this winter on Buckeye Dale :)

    Anyone else tired of them speed boats and jetski's buzzing by them yet? I'll take those windsailors up at PI over them any day. :D Big Daddy, it may be too early to start dancing, but would it be okay to at least start humming? ICE,ICE,BABY!!! :rolleyes: :p
