Did you feel it

Post By: skiman      Posted: 8/14/2014 7:08:49 AM     Points: 2825    
I walk to work and I was wondering if anyone else felt that little nip of Fall I the air on Monday morning?

I know, I's still summer, but I most certainly felt Fall. The air smelled and felt different...maybe it was the Super Moon or that I didn't get enough sleep the night before, but my thoughts turned to hard water and ice fishing!

It won't be long now, I've started checking my gear! Come on ice!

Good Fishing!

Ski - it was definately a figment of youe imagination. And please stop spreading rumors of ice. ice is bad. All you're going to do is get people like IFF, Fargingicehole and Kev-o all fired up and nowhere to go. :)

C'mon angler, it wont be that bad. Besides the faster the ice gets here the faster next open water season will come for all the warm weather guys out there.

C'mon ICE. Lol

Yeah, I heard it too, Kev-o! Hey anglerwannabe, don't get me started on ice fishing... I'm enjoying the pontoon right now! But some cooler weather would be nice! I think I'll take the ice rod on the toon and vertical fish for some perch!

Apex, Kev and Farging - you guys cut it out!
Athough, Farging, catching the perch on your ice rod with the toon would be fun.
Ski - see what you started you should be ashamed of yourself. ugh

I've had the ice rod in the yak a few times but haven't busted her out yet. Anyone have a freezer big enough we could freeze some lake water. Drill a hole and float out to a good spot :)

Maybe skiman had a nip or 2 or 3 out of a bottle.

Wow...Black Bullhead? Maybe that wasn't plain orange juice?
(Come on ice!) Good Fishing!

So I'm not the only guy who always gets that "fall is coming" sign every year midway through August (or so). Every year about this time I come in off the deck and announce that fall is on the way because of the chill and/or smell in the air... and every year the wife tells me that I say that about this time every year.

Absolutely love fall... but winter is for skiing and boarding...not sitting around a hole drilled in the water. Just a little too sedentary for me. Blame it on the ADD (heh).

Ha, ha ... I didn't notice the alternate interpretation. Doh...

Actually I did notice 5 leaves on the Mountain Ash tree have turned yellow 8-)

You're killing me BUD!!!

Actually I would love the days to dip to low to upper 50's and night to hit mid 30's to low 40's.

I actually had to turn my heat on the other morning just to knock the chill off in my truck.

That's what coffee is for, not the heater... It's getting time for fishing Dillon all night in my tube or my yak...

First weekend in November, I will be on the ice.

For now I will begin to enjoy fall bass fishing.....well in about 3-4 weeks anyhow. Still in the dog days of Summer.

This has been a mild Summer so far though.....come on early winter.

While at the lake Wednesday morning, I saw 2 leaves fall off a tree and float past me.....

Just saying

spicy, iff, elkinthebag ya'll need more sleep because you're hallucinating. Now go to bed and get some rest.

I saw yellow leaves today too, but they were attached to sunflowers.
