Counting the days!

Recommended Posts

With all this warm weather, how soon till the stores start putting their ice fishing stuff on clearance?  We may be lucky to get out by the end of January.  I'm already planning on taking a row boat out on the day after x-mas.

 

I'm not saying it isn't going to snow, but it will be a while before we get 4 to 5 inches of safe ice.

I was out in the boat the other day on a lake in WNY and the water temp was still in the mid 40's. So the lakes have a ways to go before they freeze even if we do get cold weather.

Agreed. Was out on Sodus Bay the other day for perch and sfc water temp was 46. Gonna take quite a bit of cold air to cool it down before ice will start forming...

I'm planning on taking a boat out after x-mas if the weather is decent.  I remember doing this maybe 4 or 5 years ago.  I also remember was I was not the only one on the water that day.

 

This season might really be a washout.  We can't get below freezing.  It may be trolling for browns in early March this year.  The funny thing was I was really going to buy a flasher this year, but I might wait now for the clearance sales.

I bought a bunch of new equipment over the last year. Few replacement items. Few upgrades. A buy here and a trade there when there was a deal........ Sure hope The jet sled floats!
