Ice fishing is Nice wishing
« on: September 05, 2021, 12:39:30 AM »
Ah all summer long, all I think was ice fishing.  That simple minded idea of pulling up a fish at your feet through a hole in the ice.  It's just so satisfying.

Although it does take some work to find fish.  Sometimes it's just luck, drill a hole in the ice and boom fish are biting.  Sometimes it's no luck, and it's just wasting time out there.

So it helps to get a few gears together to enjoy the time and peace of the tranquility of snowfall on the shelter roof, bare the freezing windy conditions, and just sit in that camping chair and doze off.  Let's see what this next season will bring us.  What's the latest gear?  What's the latest gossip?

And always, the best'est secret'est fishing lure or techniques.  The big fish stories, whether they be true or full of embellishment.  Or the tried and true methods of old will always produce.

I'm looking at my lures and deciding which ones to move over to ice fishing.  Really all one ever needs is just a sinker and hook with some bait.  Still choosing which jighead type or with spoon type is kind of fun in a hobbyist way.

The cold has not been extreme enough so far. No one should get on any lake yet.

This is the weekend where everything will start to change.  Cold temps will begin to make ice on many lakes.  Most of the ponds around locally have just about capped up.  As usual the sunny northern sides of the ponds where it gets the most sunlight are usually still free of ice.

I won't be ice-fishing this year. Got too many other things to worry about.

I always just plan on hunkering down at home and poof, I go ice fishing.  Same for just normal fishing.  It seems that a big plan and all, will always be subjected to change.  When young and having more energy and free time it's fine to make plans.  Simple things like fishing opener or hunting opener, those are usually pretty well locked in plans.  For other plans, especially winter fishing, there's no telling if it's gonna be a blizzard or sleet/rain storm.  The winter weather isn't always so nice.  If the subarctic winds dip down a super frostbite scenario is just as bad.  At -20 F everything starts to really freeze and propane heaters start to not work so well.  Truck batteries may freeze and you're SOL. 

Last season, on just about the days I was able to go out, it was raining and it was mostly miserable terrible.  Even with shelter set up, by that time I was too wet and cold.  Still I was able to at least hook into a fish or two, so it was okay.

I'm thinking that maybe this year will be the year that I will buy an actual ice fishing suit.  Well I did buy the Arctic Armor suit like over ten year ago but that thing was a sweat suit.  It gets really cold while wearing it as all my sweat condenses inside of it. 

I'm getting older and it does get colder.
