  1. Ice Fishing Part Deux

    To brutal for me. You guys are die hards. Good day to watch a fishing show in front of the fire.
  2. How tough are you?

    Ok. We have ice on the ponds here in Illinois and I don’t ice fish. I was curious what everyone’s temperature limit is for venturing out on the lake. I’m around 45 degrees or higher. What’s yours.
  3. How tough are you?

    Way to go. Nice Fish. Sure looks cold.
  4. Happy New Year my Internet friends!

    Stay warm Crazy. We hit -14 here in Illinois and our power went out for hour and a half. Would hate to be the Com Ed guys last nite. Wind chill was -25 or 30. Happy New Year everyone.
  5. How tough are you?

    Thanks for all the responses. Most of us become whimpy as we get older it seems. Hope we get some warmer days in January and February so this Illinois guy can come try some winter fishing. Snowing here and 15 degrees. I also dislike winter more and more the older I get.
  6. Minn Kota Ulterra trolling motor question

    Had mine one season and no major issues.

  12. beauty of a day, and the catching was not bad either

    Nice fish Bo. Were the fish relating to gravel run outs or deeper creek cuts?

    Royal, Just smile when the 11 y/o does that. You got him hooked on the outdoors and a fishing/hunting partner for life.
  14. Cape Fair

    I'm ready to get out of Illinois. The weather has sucked all month. You guys are 20 degrees warmer than here. Looking forward to 10 days around Thanksgiving at the lake. Can't wait. By the way, nice fish!
  15. On the edge.

    +1 2 weeks since last out and this weekends weather sucks in Illinois RAIN and COLD! Coming to see you guys the 21st.
  16. WTF?

    I fished 5 days last week and caught 20 with maybe 4 keepers. That is darn tuff. Hope its better in November when I come. Toughest I have seen it in several years. Good Luck!
  17. Tuesday trip

    It's tough for sure. Kimberling area had 3 from 1-6pm. First time I have ever seen a boat on every bridge piling. Must be slow. Next week will be better I guarantee it I have to head home Sunday
  18. Why can't I find the big ones?

    I feel your pain. Fished Friday Saturday and today. 15 fish. A couple keepers in that bunch. Pretty tough out there right now. Most on a drop shot and a couple on a whopper plopper.
  19. Tournaments galore

    All you can do is go out, find a spot and catch some fish. If you are retired and live on the lake you can pick and choose your days. Otherwise just gotta fish when you can. See you all this weekend. Stay safe and enjoy your time on the water.
