    Since the recent warm up, the short lived ice season looks like it's coming to an end. According to the weather channel the next 15 days are way above normal and no deep freeze in sight. I've only been out a couple of times because of my job restraints, and in my opinion was not a productive adventure. With the river ice that is melting the steelhead should be pretty active once the rivers calm down.

    It should be back. After Feb 5th we could go into a deep freeze for about a month, if Joe Bastardi, the best long term forecaster is right. He has been right so far on this winter. :)
     

  3. I’ll take open or hardwater with enthusiasm. It’s the Limbo that’s difficult to accept.
     
  4. Fingers crossed

  5. I feel for you "ice guys" but there are so many negative consequences with the sub freezing weather that aren't related to fishing.

    You know, part of it might be my age. As time goes on I seem to have less tolerance for the really cold weather. But that seems to be true for the really hot weather also.

    So I hope you get your ice back, without the paralyzing, bitter knee knocking cold.
     
  6. Still 8-10” on Milton today. Shoreline open maybe a foot off of Jersey. 13 shorts today and no keepers!!! Go fish, ice not going anywhere soon. Be safe, have fun!

  10. I sure hope it's not over yet. I got out on the ice for the first time this year and can't wait to get out and do it again. Now if there was a way to get away from this thing called work??????

  17. Give it a week and a half and let me know how that goes for you
     
  18. By the time you get to Florida to use that gear, it’ll probably be snowing down there again also.
