I'll say the lakes are frozen.  The low here was 24 below 0 yesterday.  That's almost 60 degrees below freezing.  That's when it's getting pretty chilly out.  0 and above I can deal with, 10 below can even be tolerable once you adjust to it.  But 20 below and beyond is getting pretty bad.

I would love to be in my boat on soft water right now, but I guess I will sit on the hard water and fish through a hole.  That and make some lures.

After my last tournament in mid October I stripped stuff out of my boat for the restoration thinking I'd have some mild weather to get a real head start on the job and maybe be finished by Christmas.

Yeah, right.

It turned too cold after that to use any of the adhesives outside.  Not too cold to fish though.  I wish I had just waited till mid-end Nov. to put the rods up for the season.  I'd probably be just as far along on the job as I am now.

I use winter to recharge my batteries and I'm not talking the ones on the boat. I lived in Fl. for 6 years. It was great but the winter has it's benefits. Make new baits from scratch, maintain equipment, get new ideas, try some new things and

CURSE THIS @#$@# @#$%$% WEATHER!!!!!

I'm ready to get out there!!!

Below 0 here in NY this morning and it seems the older I get the longer Winters are.  One good thing is every year in Feb. I get out of here for sunny Florida.  I get about 6 weeks to fish Toho and several of the other local lakes and it seems like it takes forever for Feb to get here.

I do. I have about 2 and a half months to wait.

I just try to keep myself busy with bass related things and other things.

I get all my gear ready, do research, read books and magazines trying to learn new techniques and what not.

I DO!!!

Every Winter I get edgy, grumpy, and jut plain old ticked Off at the world. I think if has a direct relation to me being Housed up for 4-5 Months. I miss Camping, Fishing, and Riding. Fishing is the one that I miss the most. Hanging out on my Boat, just casting the day away. Yuh, that's the Life. :-[

I have two more winters to go retire! And then we are going to move to Table Rock Lake and build on our land that we bought ! It has a nice lake view, it is the only thing that keeps me going in the winters! :-/

I too was like you suffering from withdraw.  I found a pretty nice substitute.  I started fly-fishing for trout and steelhead all winter.  It's not a bass, but it does help with the withdraw disorder.

I feel your pain.  We're getting 2-3 inches of snow every other day and that's so depressing.  I tried ice fishing, but it's not the same.

I'm practically making a list of what I need for 2009.  Slowing going out and getting them at my local outdoors stores.  Got to do something to pass the time.

I went fishing the day before yesterday on the Potomac, went to a warm water discharge and had a pretty decent day!  I caught one on a Terminator Spinnerbait that went 4.6 lbs.  Between me and my partner, we caught around 20 bass and ended up snagging 4 giant carp on cranks.

Water temp in that creek was running between 55-60 degrees.  Crazy to be doing that well in the middle on winter, but I was loving it!

i was super excited for the ice at first, cuz hey i get to try ice fishing for the first time of my life and catch bass. well as it turns out its really tough to catch bass through the ice, and its cold, and its not even close to being as active. i buy fishing lures not on sale at walmart during the winter because im so anxious to go fishing. and i bought a fly rod, im going to try fly fishing for bass. the good thing about the winter is that it gives me time to find new lakes, fishing sales, and thats about it.
