    im hoping to be on a small pond on 3" of nice clear ice on 12-20-08

    but, from experience, Ill be happy to get out and get on some hard water whenever Ma Nature says "go". ;) hopefully sooner rather than later like the end of january like last year.
  11. Can't be soon enough hopefully we don't have to wait unitl January 15
  12. Trying to take the last couple ice seasons into account, Id look for a cold spell in mid to late december that forms a little ice and has everybody excited, but then some unseasonably warm days that melts it all off....then in mid Jan. finally we get enough that we can all start venturing out on it. But I have heard we are due for a cold winter and a 30 year blizzard so who knows.

    I hope the January thaw doesn't kill it... I'd really like a good long ice season this year.
