Put Up the Ice Sled

Post By: johnski      Posted: 3/26/2020 12:46:40 PM     Points: 1819    
Yes it is that time for me to clean up and put away my ice fishing sled and gear until next year. It was a good year overall, though the 20# laker still eludes me. The new Ion 5 amp performed beyond expectations. Easily cut through 26 inches of slush, snow and ice! Time to turn the page.....

Man, I am still holding out hope for one more ice trip, but it doesn't seem too likely at this point. I am excited to get on some rivers for spring browns though.

yes rivers are still low and open. We'll see where we are in two weeks and the quarrantine.

Johnski, I love how my Ion works too but sadly have put it away for the year along with all my ice gear. Was going to have elbow surgery last Wednesday so figured best put it away before being a one armed bandit for 6 weeks and trying to put it away. Now of course the surgery has been cancelled due to the current situation. Guess it is time to get the boat out, cleaned up and on the water.

Hey SGM...yes I feel for ya. I had some minor surgery in December but yours is more serious. Stay well in these strange times.

Hey Hawaian...thanks for the invite...probably not a good cabana boy as my shakiness on board would spill martinis on the guests.!! Ha!
