Ice ready, waiting on snow

Posted: December 7, 2012 - 10:21pm

No snow, grey skies and Christmas approaching.

Isn’t Christmas supposed to be white, bright and joyful? Well, we will probably get there (hopefully sooner than later) but for now I guess we just take a day at a time and still be joyful.

I was down at the St. Paul Ice Show last weekend and by the looks of things, there are a lot of people that are gung ho to get out and fish! Continue to make safety your number one priority as you head out on the ice! I was out last evening with my son Mac but instead of fishing rods we were toting hockey sticks.

If you haven’t skated on a lake, you are missing the boat! It’s a pretty cool feeling to be able to just go and go and go without doing circles or running into some boards. I’m thinking a new Olympic sport should be tip-up fishing on skates. In fact, if we don’t get any snow in the next few days I think that is what we will do this weekend — practice for Russia in 2014!

p.s. Still looking for that special deer! And I will be sure his or her nose is not bright! Loving it Outdoors, Walleyedan.
