Hoping for Dec 17th, we seem to at least have some walkable ice in NE SD by then.

Would be great to shimmy out onto the ice over Thanksgiving weekend! Of course safety needs to be a priority at first ice, but a little walk-out panfish action would be great after a little turkey smile

I am usually somewhere in the Ely/Iron Range area for thanksgiving and can usually get out the day after thanksgiving on first ice. I have always loved thanksgiving but thinking about it more, maybe it was because I was actually excited for ice fishing ha.


Summer Sucks!

Last season it was Jan. 1, which is really late for shallow areas. Two years ago it was actually before gun deer season in Southern Wisconsin, the opener is the Saturday before Thanksgiving and I was catching crappies on Friday Nov. 21.
This year I hope it is right after the Milwaukee Ice Show because I will be more than ready to go.

Earliest for me has been the Saturday after Thanksgiving. hope this will be the case this year with them predicting a long colder then normal winter with heavy snow fall this year.


Fishing is not just a hobby it is a way of life.
