Ok, this is the most prepared i have ever been for Ice fishing. I have a new Auger, I used to have the old hand crank kind, by the time I had a hole I was ready to go home. lol. I have an underwater viewing system, I already have a portable ice house and heater and I have my gear all neatly organized and ready to go. My wife must think Im off my rocker crazy, but I cant wait for it to get cold. Yes fall fishing is great, but we have a new baby in the house, and a 1 1/2 yr old too, so by the time the ice comes we will be a little bit more settled with the new baby so I will be able to get out easier. Right now I am doing the daddy thing. Im ready for an Ice house a few beers and a whole lot of fish. I have the fishing books out, lake maps, and all. I didnt Ice fish growing up in Nebraska, well, a few times, but that involved chopping a hole in the ice with a hatchet. As you can imagine, it didnt work. lmao. Anyone else feeling the itch?

When I left deer camp on Thursday, all the ponds had ice over them. I can't wait to get out there and get some early ice "eyes".

I did see a guy drifting on Detroit Lake in about 2ft waves. I was cold in the deer stand, I don't even want to think how cold he was. They must have been biting!

daninthewoods You said you bought a new auger. What kind did you get?

I bought a new laser electric 2 yrs ago. Best auger I've ever owned.

I got a strikemaster Lazer electric. The wife got it for me for fathers day. I am glad to hear they are a good product. They make them here in my town, Big Lake. For some reason I can't find my damn instructional DVD. I have never an auger that wasn't powered by sweat, so hopefully It is self explanitory.
