Ice fishing

Recommended Posts

Anyone ice fish here?

 

Two years ago my son and I tried getting into it and had some fun. Last year there wasn't enough ice. Hope its cold enough this year.

I go about once a year. Generally fishing tip ups for pike on the refuge lakes by Valentine.

I've got to admit, I don't understand the allure (no pun intended).

 

Fishing to me should include a boat, warm weather and a relaxing environment, not freezing my a$$ off.

 

Not trying to offend anyone who appreciates it, just my opinion.

I sort of agree. There just isn't a whole lot else to do outdoors in Nebraska in January-February.

 

That said, there's a lot worse things than hanging out in a shanty with friends and schnapps.

i dont know being someone who likes to fish (granted im only pretty knowledgeable with hawaiian salt water fishing and all its many forms i.e. shorecasting, inshore fishing,offshore, bottom fishing, jigging etc) i think going ice fishing atleast once would be pretty cool... granted i also f'ing hate the cold but im sure i could stand it for a few hours if i had a couple boys with me and some beers or whatever..... id definetly be down

I'd like to try it, but the prospect of falling through the ice scares the sh#t out of me.

 

I'm not much for fishing, but winter is my favorite time to spend time outdoors. If I was going to do some fishing, ice fishing seems preferable.

Sometimes you just gotta get out of the house.

After slipping on the ice and dislocating my knee. I don't ice fish. That's why I can't wait for spring to get here. Even more so since the first week of Feb most lakes around here were losing the ice, now the majority of them have refrozen.
