Did the site close and nobody tell me? First dock tourney is in 2 weeks and nobody is here. Wake up and put some life back in the site.

Iím sort of here!   Not been a good year for me health wise.  No COVID-19 thankfully, but 2 joint surgeries and an ankle reconstruction coming in 2 weeks.  2020 has sucked.   Surgeon told me with modern technology Iíll only be on crutches 2 weeks and in a boot for 4-6 weeks after that.   So I should be ready to go on ice by beginning to mid January.   

Also going to get prizes out and contests up for 2021 season here right quick.   Want it all done before surgery because I canít drive for a while.   Itís the right ankle.

It's been an odd year, indeed!  Someone said that someday we'll tell our great-grandkids that we lived through the Great Toilet Paper Shortage.

My friends and I are all getting older every day, which you would think would be a good thing.  We've always been competitive, though now it seems like we're racing to the "finish line."  If we keep up this pace, I'll run out of pallbearers.

One of my friends was an avid hard- and soft-water fisherman, tug operator, charter captain, marina owner.  I'm helping his family sort through and sell off all his stuff.  The experience really opens one's eyes to just how much "stuff" we accumulate over a lifetime of having fun.  George Carling was right...again.  Ha!

I am just checking in.  I hope slab makes a full recovery prior to a good, long season.  If things work out, we might be on the ice a week or two prior to him being allowed to drive.  I have been watching YouTube ice fishing videos like crazy.  I hope to get out this year.  No dock tournament for me, it turns fishing into stress and work, that is what i try to get away from by fishing.

Snow yesterday and below freezing temps this morning have me stocked for.some hard water.  Temps are forecasted to be in the 60's later this week though.  Until cooler temps arrive' i will continue to catch ccrappie from the bank, watch perch videos and dream about hard water!

Still here,  trying to kick this weird bug, no taste, smell, all joints hurt, headaches every day, worst symptom no one really talks about and that confusion, I'll walk into a room and forget why I came into the room, lay my keys down and then can't find them, I was trying to make ice jigs yesterday, I must have walked from the garage to the house 10 times and each time I forgot why I went to where I was going and why I went there... nothing you can do for it but wait it out, loss of taste and smell lasted about 3 weeks, headaches started about the same time, fatigue sent in last week, loss of memory just started last week. Other than those weird feelings I've had no breathing issues... Doc said no reason to get tested because I don't have a fever, so I continue life as a normal, confused sore, grumpy old bastard... Hope to see ya'll on the ice this season.

watch it wapak ice dawg, my whole family had it in August and none of us had a fever.  Mostly mild symptoms, everyone had something different. It is running rampant in your county and mine.

Glad you are ok someone. Hope you heal quick slab. The current weather played the groundwork for ice by cooling the water temps. Hoping everyone will have a better 2021, especially when we get ice. Good luck to everyone.
