    Default ice fishing forum

    with the salmon runs generally over and the fresh water about to freeze up maybe an ice fishing forum might be a good idea for the winter months. we could share ideas on baits, rigs, custom shacks and so on.

    Default I second That!

    Great Idea. I cant wait to get out on the ice. I think its the best time to get the kids out too.
    Lest get a ice fishing forum.


    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

    I third the great idea.

    Heck, fishing in Alaska is through the ice for a good portion of the year.............

    Default Usually

    Usually everyone just posts their ice fishing messages here. And yes it is getting there. Summit Lake was close to freezing over last Monday. Many of the smaller lakers running down the Richardson north of Summit Lake were freezing up as well. It won't take much to get the lakes completely covered.

    Better start sharpening the augers and cleaning out the ice fishing takle box of old eggs and such.

    Default ice shanty

    yes it does look like a good forum. only ice fishing, people seem freindly enough and they divide everyone into teams so they must have some type of freindly competion going on for the season. looks like a good way to make the winter go by.

    problem with this deal is those fish you paintstakingly take pictures of, with the logo and the tape.....then attempt to release in 20 and 30 below temps are being killed just so you can tape them. Have witnessed this first hand. I wont partake in it!!! Even in a heated fish house, snap a pic and gettem down the hole!!!
