Been wishy washy warm/cold here.... I punched a couple holes around some docks yesterday and caught a few gills, but mostly dinky Kentucky bass. With the new baby and a new additional part time job, I haven't been out much lately. May be punching holes this coming weekend...... we will see.

AF- good ice has been so late in coming I just about wrote this year off again. Got to re-organizing my work place and tackle and that has been keeping me busy. Also got new project on boat setting up a Humminbird 360 view.

Forgot to mention. My back problems disappeared when we bought sleep number mattress. Wife hates it though but I love it.

Ice in my Crown helps my back.... Big Grin But I guess I'm a fair weather fisherman, unless I had a heated house... Icon14

Wow, are there any men without back problems?

Lately I've been trying to do regular at least every other day one mile 20 minute walks + brief mobility excercises every night before bed and my back seems to be the best in 20+ yrs. Of course, can't excercise when you're having an episode and hurting.

been out quite a bit this year. did really well early December but dropped off January, which is typical. Should pick up in another week or so again if the weather cooperates soon. but it's supposed to be -17 again tonight.... biggest crappie this winter so far is 15 inches. biggest perch was just under 16 inches. biggest pike is only 37 inches. biggest gill is 10 1/2 inches. biggest walleye only 26 inches.

Have not been. When my buddies talk about feeling the ice move and gearing cracks and pops, my desire subsides and I pray no one gets stuck.

As QK said, Kansas been hit and miss with very questionable ice, but getting cold again. Went to North Dakota with my son and a couple friends right after Jan.1st and pounded the perch before it dipped to -60 degree wind chills. Scooted out of there before we got hammered by that blast of cold air but looking ahead to going up at least once more.
