Gotta be honest with you. I am still “out of the office”, but still have not been on the ice. It embarrasses and pains me to say that! Actually, I have been on it a couple, three times, but have not found any safe enough to fish. Now, I am fully aware that ice fishing is occurring in parts of our great state. Just is, I have not been there, yet. Oh, over the holidays I thought I would make it to parts farther north and west, places where there is safe ice. And, I did, but then we had a little snow storm and the wind blew 45 for three straight days.
So, I have been grumbling more and more each day, and still waiting.
I guess some folks who do not ice fish like to sit around and make resolutions about this time of year. I guess that is OK, if you want to do that. A resolution now and then is probably a good thing. But, why wait until the calendar says Jan. 1? Why not just “Get-R-Done”, whatever it is, whenever?
Be it resolved that I WILL get on the ice and fish before spring arrives!
I believe this would be another good resolution. . . . Be it resolved. . .
And for those days of ice-fishing that hopefully lie just ahead of us. . . . Be it resolved to put the big panfish back down the hole!
I’m outta here, back to more regularly scheduled “programming” next week.
