A-Jay's 3rd Annual Ice Out / Open Water Countdown Thread ~

It’s 40 and cloudy here in Michigan. Not much snow left on the ground either, there’s none south of Grand Rapids from what I’ve seen. Rain snow mix tomorrow and almost 40 again. 
 

I hope winter doesn’t go on and on either. Two winters ago we barely had a trace of snow at this time. Then the end of January the winter flood gates opened and it went on for what seemed like forever. Winter can’t last too long. I will have some new toys that require open water!

If you think it is hard on you guys, I bought my boat 4 days before our bay froze over.  Haven't owned a fishing rig in 9 years.  Going completely nuts.  Made worse that it is cold and not enough snow to rip around on snowmobiles.

He needs to win something.

I am rooting for the Old Guy.

Old guy? If you and him were more than 2 years apart, I'd be surprised.

Congrats on the new rig. Assuming it's NOT the one in your avatar pic...or is it?

@A-Jay and I are 2 months apart - we got about 8 years on KVD...he's a 'kid'.

So you're saying @A-Jay should be referring to KVD as the young whipper snapper instead of old guy?

Still no sign of an arctic front here in the forecast. I see a couple nights where it may dip to near zero but there’s also a day of almost 40. Ice shacks and trucks are going through the ice here at record pace too. People just assume that the ice is thick and strong in mid January here.

I usually can tell when it's the middle of January.  

That's right about the time that the voices in my head start a chat group.

I know they're not real, problem is

sometimes their ideas are absolutely awesome.

Their generosity has no limits ~

In fact you may have seen one or two of their 'ideas' here already . . . .

You look different in real life than you do in your avatar pic.

That’s the difference between 33* and 15*! Doesn’t seem like much in the grand scheme thing of things but that little bit of temps makes a huge difference!
