Over Christmas Break, say sometime between the 22-30 of December, does anyone want to hook up (If Ice is really good) say around Mount Pleasant, Chippewa Lake, Mitchell or Cadillac Lakes or say within and hour from Blanchard, MI 49310 (for anyone that wants to map it). I am sick to death of fishing alone and not really catching anything year after year and would like to get together with someone who might have a better clue than I on where to fish so I can bring home something to jusify all the gear I have.

My wife thinks I have a girlfriend and some sort of sickness that makes me like dead bait in the fridge door.

I would like to find a place, pack some sandamawitches and make a day of it.

I have the whole week between Christmas and New Years off and plan to fish everyday. PM me if you want to meet up. I'm always looking for someone to go with. I live 30 miles north of Lansing so all of those areas are fine by me.

I am only a few minutes west of Blanchard (Mecosta) and am looking for someone to icefish with as well...It seems my sons have grown up and no longer have time to fish.... I don't have any extra days off in the next few weeks though...or any free days for that matter but I sure would like to get a few guys together over New Years if any of you are interested...I got an old beat up portable and an even more beat up gas auger if anyone is interested in a get together... Maybe on Chippewa, there's supposed to be some monster Gators in there, or Cadillac...It doesn't matter...

Well it seems that they have these meet and greats downstate all the time and generally it is to far or on a bad day for me....so maybe we ought to have a Central Mi meet and great...of course any and all would be welcome...Meet at Chippewa where we might catch a Walleye or 2. Cook up some chili and just have a big BS festival on the ice...raise a little he!! with the locals and go home lol....
I know Isabella has gators as well but am not sure if we can fish there not living there...
There has to be more members than this that live inthis area or close to it...

What is the ice like down that way and what lake were you two thinking of? The further north of Lansing the better, but either way fill me in!!!!
