    This is actually a couple of years ago. We were on Lake Binder in SW Iowa It's looking like the weekend before Christmas will be our first time out this year.

    So jealous.

    It's looking like I won't get on the ice until we go to Minnesota next month.

    50 degrees here today on January 4th :L Could almost get the boat out at this point.

    I was excited when I actually got out on the ice before Christmas which is rare. But now it's going to be weeks yet before there is good ice again.

    Yup. It sucks. I'm just hoping that we can get a few weeks of late season ice in this area. Okoboji has good ice, so far, so that is always an option.
    We're leaving a week from today for a week in Minnesota. I have 7 lakes to fish in 6 days. I don't know if I will get to them all, but I'm willing to try.

    Just bought new bibs to wear and a nice new rod and reel combo. Here's to hoping I actually get to use them this year.

    Booked a trip to Okoboji at least.

    Finally getting overnight teen temps here so maybe the small ponds will be fish-able soon. Funny that I wrote above about the brutal cold on 1/1/18. On 1/1/19 I took my Harley for a spin!

    We still have open water here in SE Michigan. Weather has been crazy. Probably going to finally freeze over here in the next few weeks. Still no snow on the ground.
