Non Ice Fishers

Recommended Posts

I'm just sitting here, having a coffee, and staring at my boat in the yard, all covered up and cold.sad.gif

I think i'm gonna make some tackle today, and change the line on my reels.

What do you guys do to keep busy in the winter.Cant keep staring at my boat, i'm getting nose prints all over my patio door.blink.gif

I used to to paint on the glass with my nose too. :whistling:

 

Then I started ice fishing! It is a LONG time until trout season opens around here and even longer for bass. :blink:

 

 

Give it a try, you might "get hooked" on a new OBSESSION too. :w00t:

Luckily for me the current weather temperature is keeping this obsession under control. :angel: ( -11c with windchill of -17c :w00t: this am going UP TO windcill of -10c this afternoon)

 

But if I knew of a hut or two close to London, I would be jumping all over that to go. :blush:

 

We'll see though. I may go out for a coffee around noon and put a wet finger to the wind to really see how cold it is . B)

I try to make up for lost time (May - Oct) with the love of my life (that would be my wife). Actually, she is wanting to join me on the odd outing this year so I will be deducting that from 'lost time' and applying that to 'free time' to maybe take up ice fishing 'part time' next year. Does that fish math work???

Splashopper,

I think you need to explain to your wife what you were doing in the bathroom with your blackberry?? :oops:

Seriously though, I try not to explain anything (ever since the infamous la senza bra incident) to my wife.

aside from snow removal and more snow removal...last year..i tinkered in the garage woodworking ...made a pub table and some other stuff ...this year i figured it was time to re- introduce myself to the passion of photography that used to occupy 90% of my grey matter when i was young(cant beleive i said that!) ....i gotta say though ...these DSLRs are way easier then the 35mm SLRs ..

 

Bring on the last saturday of April

For the Mercman,

Okay,here's the short version of the infamous la senza bra incident:

1. Business trip

2. Checked luggage

3. Baggage handlers with a sick sense of humor (I think)?

4. Arrived home and immediately left for a fishing trip

5. Wife emptied the luggage and found the really sexy and perfume laden black la senza bra

6. It wasn't my wifes :whistling:

 

True story.
