Eagle Crg and I will be off to the Northern Challenge on Mason Pond, Saturday Feb. 5th and will hope for weather a little warmer than last year. When we arrived at 6am it was -12 with plenty of wind and our fishing spot only had 6' of water. Needless to say we got skunked, but were glad we had a tent w/heater to keep us warm.
This year we will try for one of those great prizes while huddled around the campfire on the shoreline enjoying fine food, fellowship and plenty of the liquid refreshment. Nice thing about this tournament is all the fun people you get to meet. Even saw Wisdom up there with his Viking's jacket, while I had my Eagle's jacket. Weather this year appears to be a little more comfortable with warmer temperatures, but that's the fun of ice fishing.
If others are going; look for the guy in the ragged Eagle's jacket and say hello.
