    I don't think I am ever "truly" ready for a new fishing season:

    -I still have jigs to tie
    -I still have flies to tie
    -I still have in-line spinners to assemble
    -I still have to learn about all the species up here, since I'm only familiar with the species in Oklahoma....

    Have been happy to post results in the ice fishing thread this winter. Looking forward to being able to report in this thread over the summer as my new boat/kayak is being delivered tomorrow. I purchased an old town predator xl minn kota and after a couple weeks of getting it registered, rigged up with rod holders & electronics, should have her on the lake soon. Good luck to everyone. I know I've got the itch!

    I would recommend going to the SOS in Jackson Crossing. Just snag a ticket and then go walk around and have lunch. It is a pain getting a new registration... all that for a a $15 reg

    I was just there this morning. FINALLY managed to get my MI Driver's License today. I was there 15 minutes before they opened. Called the number on the sign, answered the questions on the recording, and had my phone number up on the queue before they even opened the doors. In and out in 15 minutes!

    Now I need to get a fishing license.....

    I just moved to Jackson in Aug 2015. I've been out ice fishing on Gilletts. Still learning the area, as well. Are you living in the city?

    I'm in Vandercook. Gillett's isn't that far away; I've been planning on dropping my kayak in there, along with other places.

    Went to local lake with the fam. We didn't catch anything, but two local guys did. Pulled a limit of very good sized gills.
