    ...and ready to start again. Had a nasty battle with cancer. I'm beating it and recovering, it's been a long road. I think I'm ready to start trying again. Any good reports in N.E. Michigan? Jewell, Hubbard, Beaver, Loon in Hale? Anything good happening? I'm going on the ice this weekend...

    Hey Crash, can't help you with those areas cuz I'm not up that way, just wanted to say congrats from one cancer survivor to another. Really missed my hunting and fishing during that battle 13 years ago. Best of luck as you get your feet "wet" again!

    I say who cares on the bite and go make it happen for yourself now that you can man. Congrats on great news and just getting out will be way more than enough for ya guaranteed. I bet you have a big sigh of relief once you get out there and all set up with line in the water and any pull on that line will be more than worth it! Good luck and never give up.

    Thanks everyone. Spent Saturday on ice. We were on Jewell in BC, got the normal small gills. Marked plenty, sight fishing was crazy. Saw many nice sized gills and perch. The big ones weren't hungry. Got some lunch and headed on up to McCollum. Had the same issues. Marked a bunch of fish but the bite was slow. It felt good to get that exhausted. Tight lines all.

    Pimpin' ain't easy and neither is ice fishing as I'm sure you remember well:) At least you can do it again though and that is all that matters. Good luck man, I know cancer beat my dad down pretty good for a couple years just before he was ready to call it quits after about 34 years at GM and now he has MS and has a difficult time even getting up and about so I feel horrible for him as one major illness is more than enough for anyone let alone a second one. Kills me every day thinking about it and we used to hunt together every year and fish once in a while and haven't done either since his cancer battle and now you couldn't even pay him enough to get out and do anything as he has sort of given up on taking part in any adventures like that anymore. Totally sucks so do it while you can is all I can say and if you got kids do it with them too because I miss it and wish I could do that stuff with my dad still.
