So who ice fishes?
Ice fishing is very high on my fishing list.
You could even say that I'm addicted to it! [My wife sure does! :oops: ]
Winter can cause some very serious cabin feaver issues and now that I can't ski any more, ice fishing has filled the void very well.
I don't limit myself to any one type of fish when ice fishing. In fact I love to target multi-species on the ice.
This past winter, I even hooked into a Tiger Muskie at Pineview.
So, why do you like to ice fish?

I hope to have some kind of ice fishing get together this year.
We'll talk more about it as soon as we get safe ice.

Dubob, I have a very good feeling about Pineview this year.
That spot over on the South side of the narrows should produce some nice Perch this season.
I just hope that I can keep an ice augar running this year! :oops:

Strawberry would be great, but with no 4 wheeler, sled and with a hand auger(2 1/2+ feet of ice???), I cant justify a 2 hour drive to catch a bunch in the slot. That just me though. I think Ill be at homles the most with frequent trips to pineview and mantua.

Grandpa D ???? You pushed this issue last year and guess what happened....the lakes froze !!!!.... :p :p

A true story: A long time ago I had a friend who had a vasectomy, the doc ordered him to sit on a bag ice for at least three days to keep the swelling down...Well, my friend (me), got a little restless and not being able to sit in one spot for 5 seconds ( still the same ) my bro and I headed for Otter Creek. Coldest year I've ever seen. I 'sat' on that ice for three solid days never had a bite! Can't really say I froze my *** off but it did take care of the problem.... :D :D

Anyway...that was the end of my ice fishing...never done it since.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

No boats, but I did have a guy with a parashute and a snowboard buzz me at Pineview last winter.
I'm not sure, but it may have been Super Dell! *()*
