Ice in August
Usually around this time I start to think about ice fishing to take my mind off the heat or unsuccessful trips.
Kind of like Christmas in July on tv ( made for TV Christmas movies must be pretty cheap to show) but not as asinine, its a good time to think of what you're looking forward to this winter, good memories or anything else.
I'm mainly looking forward to no mosquitos, ticks, spiders* and rocks.
Have to add intense sun and smoky air to my summer hate list, people who swim in untreated water to my annoyance list.

*in webs, do OK with spiders on me, then they're the intruder and usually don't bite. Its more of a honor to have them building webs on you, or a sign you need to move more, catching bugs with your own spiders web is just a sign of patience.

Seen some ice in the stream and puddles up on the Fish Lake unit last week while I was deer hunting... probably be awhile before it's fishable though... Still the same it's coming... looking forward to the hard water... Later J

Yep - only a month out for the Henry's Lake trip to Idaho. Lots of new tackle & gear being discussed over on IS by both the ID & UT gang. High Uinta lakes are probably getting some ice by now with snow up around 10,000 plus feet falling and staying.


My local go to store (Angler's Den in Roy, UT) has some very interesting new tackle from Johnson that will see the inside of my tackle box very soon.
Cool

I started working on my tent last night, going to spruce it up a bit for this season. Kind of fun to do those projects. Bring on the ice. Later J
