Can not wait to hard water fish two tip ups out and sit in the house and watch football. The lake I live on has a 10 pike a day limit. Too many snakes But thru the ice northern back straps are every bit as good as walleye.
I miss ice fishing. Then I think back to when my hole had frozen over and my fishin' buddy gave me a shove and I fell over with the 5 gallon plastic bucket frozen to the seat of my snowmobile pants. Snowmobile pants in 1975 was a pair of long John's and 2 pairs of track pants. I don't know what was worse, freezing to death or cleaning around 400 Perch. No limit back then. I don't know if we went for the fishing or the food, drink and too many belly laffs to count. I do miss that part for sure.
Johnny D/coming to you from the north shore of the crystal clear waters of Lake Erie. I too can sit inside and watch my tip ups if we ever get ice again on Erie, it's been years.
