Pray for warmth

Recommended Posts

I love to ice fish but I'm praying for a warm winter.  I think what hurt us last year was the cold extending late into March / April.

As long as winter does not get dragged out until April, I think we will be fine.

Same weather service has March as being warmer than average. Let's hope!

I'm hoping big time!  We need another big alewife hatch.

Do you have high whitetail deer winter loss in a year where you have a cold winter and a drawn out spring?

Yes usually it’s the yearlings as they don’t have enough fat reserves

One year ago today, our intake temp was 35 degrees.  We are currently sitting at 40 degrees.  Hopefully this pattern continues and the lake temp is not cold too long.

Bucks in the UP take a lot of loss during a bad winter.  Same fat reserve thing.  Pray the timber wolves don't show up.  They do many joy kills.

 

I hope that the winter is such that fishing is outstanding this coming July.  The Mrs and I plan on taking a few kings from Lake Ontario this summer.
