The bite never really turned on this summer. Way too hot too quick. That said I still caught my fair share for sure but it was definitely slower this summer. Now that it's too hot to even enjoy being outside.... Well.... Let the ice begin!

OH HAIL NO! What has this forum become????? All Ice and Carp weirdos should be banned immediately.. immediately I say! Starting with elkinthebag.. then Kev-o, fargingicehole, carpitup, John_CO, Ajax, Bron, Goosehunter, Lackskill and we'll throw in Fishrangler.. yeah yeah he's a catfish guy.. but I'm so incensed right now!

I see I'm going to have some problems here. FIRST Kev-O should be moved to the head of the banned line! Next, IceFishingFool needs his account locked in an expeditious manner.
SGM - don't know where you got that old pic of me.. but that's how I keep other anglers out of my space!
On reflection, Tom (state Editor) needs to be banned too as he is an avid carp weirdo. This creates a problem... Tom and Matt control the forum.. and they're friends.. I need to cause a rift among them and then have Matt ban Tom! A solid plan is coming together.
I2Fly - you can stay ... for now... I have a suspicious mind and the ice and carp weirdos may have conspired or drugged you into working with them to lower my guard! Anteroman and Vinnie.. got my eye on you two too.
TRAITORS TRAITORS Smelly and Esox you're almost my last bastion of hope and even you have succumbed to the succubus known as ice and carp weirdos!
Tony - I wanna thank you.. I really really do but I know for a fact you're an ice weirdo too! Unless there's rocks to climb.. hmmmm maybe I can work this to my advantage! lol But you are correct, I have been having a most excellent year thus far.

No stupid forest fires in winter either. My cooler is light since I dont need icepacks. No mosquitos. Fishing during Bronco games you have the lake to yourself. Now, if we do away with ski traffic I have to argue hardwater season is sportsmans paradise.
I would love to take out some one who dislikes or is a rookie tp experience some of the best fishing of the year That fish was landed with a buddy who had no clue about ice fishing. Now he's hooked And the scenery is priceless
Lol even Jim diidnt like the 100% heat today on the lake. But in Colorado fashion it started to rain when we got the boat off the water. Then got nice again then more rain wind and a temp drop that got me excited cause it could have been snowing. (Almost)

We arent new to ice fishing but would like to fish with you Riper. You wont see me south of Lamar ....ever. Sorry Bill. Colder the better. Fished all morning today and spent all afternnoon rehydrating with ac and fans. This sucks.
Now that the jet stream has buckled--and we are in a rainy pattern for at least 7 days---what will the complaints be? Haha. I must say I dislike the dog says of summer for fishing but not quite ready for ice. I am definitely ready for a nice long autumn of fishing though. Knowhatimsayin bra?
