Yeah its not ice fishing but its going to be a cool one this evening. My fishing buddy for today will be an elderly retired GM worker that I go to church with. Its cool to have friends with boats!! As long as he makes it back in time from doing some shopping with his wife we are going to hit the lake this evening and try to catch some striper. Hopefully we pull some in the boat. I just hope I remember the camera! I need to break out some of my hunting undergarments for this one. Should be around 30 degrees this evening.

when its cold ya got to slow down the presentation.i hook my bait behind the dorsal fin then clip on of the fins down so they swim in odd circles.if your anchored another trick is to scale the ish/and drop the scales in the water it look like glitter in the water and really attracts the fish.i use that trick on lake trout all the time.Mmmmmmmmm lake trout.cant wait for spring:biggrin:

me and a buddy of mine went fishin last weekend and didnt get anything. got to the spot and relized i forgot the bait at home.:wallbash: so we went back and got the bait. and went to another spot cus people were moving in on our spot as we were leaving. so we get to our new spot and the lake level is up (very odd) which kinda messud up our area. we shot to a few different spots and got nothing. but then again were about as good of fishermen as we are hunters lol.:no:

well we got there, set up, and fished all night. used worms and stinkbait. had a few nibbles but that was it. then it got cold (high 20s) and the wind picked up. so we decided to tie the poles to the dock and call it a night. we went up the hill and watched a movie in the yacht club. checked the poles in the even colder morning and we had several bare hooks and one channel cat about 6 inches long. its was colder than we expected and we were under dressed so we didnt hang around long.

but today i was given a 13' 8" wooden flat bottom john boat. a friend built it but he didnt put any fiberglass on the seams so the seams started to crack and leak. luck for my i can easaly sand it, glass it, and repaint it in one weekend. then all i have to do is customize it and take it to the lake! should have pics soon. the work that it needs is easy to do, but he wanted to build a new one and not mess with fixing that one. he found it was not fit for his needs anyway but it should work for me just fine!
