Waiting for ice to grow a bit more for ice fishing in comfort. Currently 7.5 inches. Ice Castle needs 10, preferably 12. Kubota and Truck 12 too. Been on the ice with the Mule (needs 7 inches).

We had 4 days of skimpy ice back in November, and open water since then.

My "ice fishing"consists of taking ziplocks of fillets out of the freezer.

How do you keep your garage so clean?
I spent four hours picking up in mine yesterday and if you didn't know what it looked like before you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference. lol

If you drink enough Rue 33, you only need 3" of ice on the water....

Weather app on my phone's calling for highs in the 20's, low's of 7 on Thursday & Friday next week. Yikes. Looks like I'll be chucking a good bit of wood into the furnace. It'll be interesting to see how hard the pond ices over.

Hopefully you don't get a bunch of snow. That will insulate the pond and minimize the ice. If the snow is heavy and thick, it will push down the ice and water will come up thru the cracks making a white frozen mess.

Ice?


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Had a nice 3" thick skateable surface this morning, and now the weather is messing it all up. 2-4 inches of smudge expected, though right now it is sleet. Didn't even get a chance to get on it.

Yes, for real. Happens once or twice most winters; not this early in the season, though.

Dwight, how's the snow level at your place? I talked to my cousin in MN and they've had 28" of heavy wet snow in the past 4 days.

North Texas had a cold last week with temps in the single digits. I hunted but didn’t stay out long.

Nice Black Crappie! How much ice do you have? We are in a warm spell, the ice is 1/2 gone from the pond now and it's not safe to go out on. Same with the local lakes.
