I've got the terminal itch....it NEVER goes away....boat or no boat.

Harry
How are ya comin on those lures I asked ya ta paint??????? The black one and the brown one sittin on buckets in a canal on treasure island with the white floor and reed brown back ground??????? Seein pictures of all the other stuff you been paintin makes me think you aint been workin on mine??????? schlepin off are ya????? The sooner ya paint us sittin on buckets on the ice the sooner that itch will be scratched, might as well throw in an old grumpus with a 200 lb. sled and an augar that wont start while your at it.:evil:

Yeah, it was that cold snap that did it. That and I stopped at BassProShops after work on Friday. They have all of their Ice stuff out already, so I was drooling in there for an hour and a half.
I'm in the same boat as you guys, well I guess the same shanty.

Next trip to the island(if the water aint hard yet)I'm gonna bring an ice rod to fish off the side of the boat...bet it works good. Haven't had to cast 20 minutes after I anchor, they're under the boat. Really itching to try some of the new stuff out.

Mike,

Haven't painted the "catficious jig" for the grumpus either. Meant to, just haven't and I doubt I will for this season. Still want to show you some of the fixed hooks you were asking about, from my old site.

I can NOT wait. Looking forward to a nice long season this year. last year wasn't the greatest but I am thinking this year will be better. Going to get my gear out of the shed this weekend and moved into the garage so I can start getting ready. Absolutely love to sit in the garage on a Sunday putting new line on my tip-ups and ice reels. Have to stop on my way home tonight and pick up a 12 of Shiner Bock!

I believe Sly and I saw one like that on the ice last year fishing the raft. Looks nice but I'd hate to have to put it up in the wind :lol:

When we fishing again Matt? I'm ready for ice!!!!

I've had the itch for over a month now...I bought some new boots and a few jigs back in September. The doctors say if I am patient and do as much deer hunting as possible, the itch should clear up by early December. ;)

Sure looks like it Sly, I haven't used my shanty in two years...thinking of selling it actually. Would have to talk to Dad about that though, just no need for one fishing a canal IMO -Bryon
