So, who is ready for the water to freeze over for some good ole ice fishin? I have a few secret holes and I cannot wait to get out and drill some holes in the ice.
I have a gas powered ice auger which has a mind of its own and a hand powered auger. In my prime I could drill a hole with the hand auger through 2 feet of ice in under a minute. We used to time ourselves and compete for the fastest drilled hole. Now those days are over since I mainly ice fish by myself these days.
It a way its a tradition with my wife and I, she buys me a new ice fishing pole every christmas. This has taken place ever since I have known her.
to all of you ice fisherman out there have a safe winter and catch some monsterous bou's, dollies, burbs, or whatever it may be that you catch.
