What you talking about Willis?

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!
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 7/20/2018 7:00:58 AM     Points: 45028    
OH HAIL NO! What has this forum become????? All Ice and Carp weirdos should be banned immediately.. immediately I say!

If you can't see your breath it's too hot outside.
 Reply by: i2fly      Posted: 7/20/2018 7:25:04 AM     Points: 1433    
AWB, you are correct . Strange fellows one and all. The only ice I need is in my drink. I can't cast in a 10" hole..... Strange.

Yup cant wait
It shouldnt get 97 degrees in Idaho springs Colorado
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 7/20/2018 9:54:15 AM     Points: 45028    
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.
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 7/20/2018 10:03:42 AM     Points: 25921    
Ban soft water and 90 degree heat.
 Reply by: esoxrocks      Posted: 7/20/2018 11:14:07 AM     Points: 2480    
Never thought I'd say it but, I can't wait for things to cool down. Too figgin' hot to move. Cool but not freezing.. however.

Just don't see myself siting on my butt...staring down a hole for hours on end.
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 7/20/2018 11:19:15 AM     Points: 25921    
Stare at the fishfinder, not the hole Esox.
 Reply by: esoxrocks      Posted: 7/20/2018 11:22:57 AM     Points: 2480    
That makes all the difference. Now I cant wait to sit on my butt and stare at the fishfinder for hours on end. LOL

Seriously I should give it a chance again... fishing withdrawal gets so bad in the winter that even ice fishing might be acceptable.

Doubt it, but maybe..

How's that AWB?
 Reply by: i2fly      Posted: 7/20/2018 11:51:22 AM     Points: 1433    
Just switch to tail waters. I was casting dry flies - size 22 & 24s in January. Never mind I couldn't see them... I can't see staring at an ice hole
 Reply by: Tbubb      Posted: 7/20/2018 12:04:02 PM     Points: 18243    
Ignore the "Haters" Jim, they are just trying to think of a way to out-catch you!
 Reply by: 3wayfisha      Posted: 7/20/2018 1:06:14 PM     Points: 114    
Super eager for ice, but ive got cutties, salmon, and browns to catch before the season starts )

Going to do some over night backpacking ice fishing trips this year..cant wait to break out the snow shoes and 4 season tent!
 Reply by: Smelly      Posted: 7/20/2018 2:23:14 PM     Points: 20703    
Sorry AWB this battle is ALL YOU. And the deck seems to be stacked WAaaaaY against you ! Can't remember when this started this early. These guys are locked,loaded, and ready for the LONG HAUL !

Nice pic SGM ! ( AWB. Thought you said the Doc's cured you of your "Thong Fishing " Obsession. What happed ? LOL )

Kev. AWB still claims you Photoshopped his face onto somebody else in that picture.

Now its time to sit back and enjoy the show ! Just hope I can find a real good deal on bulk Popcorn !!

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.
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 7/20/2018 6:19:57 PM     Points: 25921    
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.

Fins up to the ice guys. Bring on the big ice cube.

...................and you hard water freaks know why I head to Florida on October 30th !!

Ice is for bourbon and rum not to walk around on punching little holes in so you can sit there and freeze your butt off.

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

Anteroman -MY HERO !!!!
 Reply by: elkinthebag      Posted: 7/21/2018 6:26:49 PM     Points: 2082    
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)
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 7/21/2018 6:29:11 PM     Points: 25921    
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.
 Reply by: TADA32      Posted: 7/21/2018 6:39:21 PM     Points: 8910    
I enjoy fishing with all you guys. Heck ice is almost the only time I get to fish with any of you.
 Reply by: Wilbur Rednbacker      Posted: 7/21/2018 7:24:54 PM     Points: 2044    
Cant wait for the ice. I never thought catching big fish would be so easy until I started Ice fishing.
 Reply by: SGM      Posted: 7/21/2018 7:55:26 PM     Points: 6724    
Riper, I agree, some of the best fishing of the year.

Bron, yes no bugs and not sweating my #$& off is a huge plus. Iíve had enough heat from my several trips to the desert.
 Reply by: tfotrout      Posted: 7/21/2018 8:07:46 PM     Points: 1000    
Bring on the ice!!!!
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 7/21/2018 8:15:24 PM     Points: 45028    
elk - you forgot to mention that it was 43 degrees at 5:30 this morning. And that The Boss literally climbed in the trunk of the car and took a nap! LOL

Anteroman - the PC term is Ice weirdos!!! But freaks works for me!

Riper - when hard water comes, I'll remember that offer.. am willing to bet I can talk an airman into joining you.

Every year I suffer the same indignation.. so I'll clarify again... ICE IS BORING! I don't mind the cold.

The only part of ice fishing I like is hanging out with you guys. So every year, I venture a couple forays onto the hard water.

Lastly, I think ice season should also be Subaru season.. I should be allowed to run them over with my truck. Seems like every person that skis owns one and drives like a madman.

 Reply by: Smelly      Posted: 7/21/2018 8:26:13 PM     Points: 20703    
" Couple forays onto the hard water" ? AWB = ICEWEIRDO !!!!

I dont like suburus either. Right there with you Jim.

Ice is for racing, not fishing. Iíll go freeze my ass off in a river

Dang, I'm running out of popcorn.

How long was the racing season last year
 Reply by: Bubba02STi      Posted: 7/22/2018 7:21:39 PM     Points: 497    
@ripper. I donít know. I didnít do any ice racing last year. I know it wasnít long though. I think they only got a couple races in due to the lack of ice.

I honestly donít care if people ice fish or not. The diversity in this sport is what makes it so great. Iím just adding fuel to the fire.

*sits down with IFF with more popcorn*
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 7/22/2018 7:32:25 PM     Points: 45028    
can't use my tubes or toons on ice! So again, ICE FAILS!

And IFF was supposed to have been banned already.. that's what Matt and Tom said! More duplicity among the ranks!

Problem solved Jim.

Theres no rules you cant bring your floaty pool toys out on the ice.

With that rig you can take AWB ďtrollingĒ! 🤪

You can use your float toys, just not real practical.
 Reply by: anglerwannabe      Posted: 7/23/2018 6:50:04 AM     Points: 45028    
Cisco - I like it! 2 things tho.... 1) did you buy me one already? 2) where is the actual water? oh, wait.. IT'S FROZEN!

Riper - char? That's something I can probably be talked into, but lots of whining would accompany it.
 Reply by: SirGreg88      Posted: 7/23/2018 12:02:59 PM     Points: 18    
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?
 Reply by: Goosehunter82      Posted: 8/16/2018 7:38:28 PM     Points: 42568    
Bump. I'm almost ready for the short rod. In fact at last weekends TLO carp tournament I used my 42 in Dave Genz rod for carp!

Iím more excited about fall fishing than the ice.

We landed some absolute bruisers of pretty much every species right before ice on last year.

I'm ready!! Hunting season, then ice season - Best time of the year is coming soon!
