    I don't know about most of you but I've just about had my fill of this Ohio winter weather. I'm really pumped about getting out to do some fishing.

    I probably won't go this year. It was elbow to elbow last year. If I do go, I'll have my OGF hat on.

    I think we exhausted the raising the horsepower threads, and everyone is done looking for "cheap trucks". It's kind of hard to troll dipsy's and boards with ice on the lake LOL. Deer seasons over and I don't yote hunt (Should Start). So there is nothing left to do, except bitc$ about the weather. :p

    damn,the rain finally changed to big steady snowflakes here in newark:mad:
    guess i'd better put the shorts and tee shirts back in the drawer for now:rolleyes:
     
  11. snowing hard in Middletown right now.

    It seems every year I start getting the cabin fever about now. I do have access to a small 2 acre pond that never freezes due to the aerators/fountains. I usually end up over there first part of March using ice jigs and spikes cathing dink bluegills just to get out!
     
  12. Last year the daily highs for February didn't look any better than this year. How come the cabin fever seems worse this year :confused:.

    that's right.but the second half looked better with highs from mid 30's to the 60+ mark.
    looks like it's gonna be a little later this year

    i think what makes things bad this year is the fct that december and january last year were lots warmer overall than this year,so it really has been a long winter this year in comparison.
     
  15. Ya know when I was racing motocross....a group of us would load up and head south to slightly warmer climates for an extened weekend just to help ease the pain of waiting for warmer weather around here. I am thinking that it wouldn't be a bad idea to hitch up the boats and do the same thing!! Watching the Bassmasters this weekend REALLY got me in the mood to wet some line for sure!!!
     
  16. The 2nd half of Feb 2007?? According to weather underground we only had one day over 45° last Feb, and that was 53° on 2/25/07.

    I think you hit the nail on the head though. Dec/Jan '06-'07 was MUCH warmer than Dec/Jan '07-'08, so the winter didn't seem as long.

    I saw a Robin yesterday at Wills Creek, I heard the Red Winged Blackbirds are heading North and the days are getting considerably longer. Morel Mushroom posts of findings are beginning to come in from the South and West Coast. I will be finding shrooms in 5 weeks at most, you just can't stop Spring from coming!!;) Hang in there, it's right around the corner better hurry and finish the Honeydo list, get the reels respooled and the tackle organized because it's almost here!!
