Same here!   Been a lousy ice season so far.   I havenít drilled any holes yet myself either.

My "brand new" shanty has gone through 2 seasons without being on the ice.  It was frozen inside my shed last season and only a couple of days of good ice this season when i could not get out.  Maybe next year will be better.  I am giving up on this season. >:( :'(

I know.  Itís sucks.  Anything we get from this cold snap will be gone by the end of next week.   Pathetic season!

Granted, this season seems to be over. It's a bitch,sucks and depressing! Might as well start doing my income taxes then really get pissed off!! But I'm curious how close we came for good ice. From Feb.5 - Feb 14  the temps were H=30.8  L=22.5  AVG = 26.7  at Indian Lake.  If anyone will be around Indian this weekend, I'd enjoy an ice report!  Thanks!!!

We might get a few dayís.   Long term not great this week, but better than before.   Some early season spots might be froze up!

I'm up in Michigan on 6-10 inches right now.  Fishing isn't great but we're getting some nice perch. Hope to do better today when it's not blowing 35 mph. Get up here boys...

I am probably one of the most positive ones on here about us getting good ice, but today I put both my shanties back in the barn loft. Rods and such are still in the garage just incase but am moving the boat back to the drive tomorrow. I only got out 7 times this year but sounds like I did better than most.

Yes Evinrude 58, I think 7 times this year were better than most! Unfortunately, I did not make it at all. I only fish Indian Lake . Convenience, time and ice conditions played a toll on me. Let's hope next year will be better!!
