Ice 2022-2023

Well, it's here and I haven't drilled a hole yet.
Spent so much time in the woods that I didn't get my gear or scouting together until yesterday.
Looked at my local lake. Walked out with spud bar . The windblown ice was 4" but the clear black ice where need to be was 2 inches minus. Not ready yet.
I will be making a trip north on Friday to where I know there's good safe ice to fish and keep the multi year streak going.
Peace and tuna

    While they are fun to catch, they don't put food on the table.
    Now that all gear has had a shakedown, tomorrow is a different game plan.

    First trip for 2023. Probably going to be awhile again as the weather doesn't look promising for ice.
    Plan is to chase rabbits this weekend.
    Tonight it's what's for dinner here on the homestead.

    recall a long time ago fishing a ct trout stream when the suckers were in their spring migration- a guy with a distinctive far up Northeast twang insisted they were trout and kept as many as he could get--even over the trout limit=  funny stuff out here from time to time

    We get a huge sucker run in a tributary of the Hudson behind my house early May.
    As a kid I'd go there just mainly to watch them ( and some shenanigans).
    Some folks would come with buckets and a net. They'd net them in mid air as they tried to jump the dam and leave with buckets full.

    Well, tonight was an incredible dinner of stuffed striper with diced clams and perch.
    We also broiled a backstrap chunk ( didn't make the picture)
    Nothing like eating foods that came by our own hands.

    I gotta take next weekend off from the hardwater to do some family obligation.
    After then, I'll be on some big waters after Lakers. So far I've been out every weekend just before the new year.

    Ps.
    I'm booked for the SR again opening trout day. I got some irons in the fire up there and as always on that time, I'll visit Jack's secret spot.
