Your sons are watching you boating making tight circles in the open water. I couldn't resist that comment Jason.

The weather broke the freezing point here in Omaha yesterday, and was 35 at lunchtime today, so I got in a nice walk.  Picture of the Mighty Mo looking North from Miller's landing.  Used the Hotsy to blast all the snow and ice from the Timi, will be on the cradle by end of the day Wednesday.  New engine got a bath as well, mother nature helping me keep on schedule.  5 degrees and snow Thursday, but 48 Wednesday.

Yeah, it's a bit brisk outside.  Just a side bet Trent, I'll bet boating within 90 days.  Good Friday is March 30th, opening golf season.  Good enough to golf, then good enough to boat.  Have you done any planning for a boating/camping trip to your little slice of paradise?

Do you guys boat in the winter over there? We donít really here however I make a point of going to a local pub/bar once a month for dinner on the boat even in the winter to give it a good run. However what I canít do and I didnít realise is my glassing as itís too cold to set so looking forward to getting that done!

I was out on the frozen lake last night talking to a few fishermen;  I typically go for a stroll with the dog when I see fishermen set up camp multiple nights in a row, something is up usually.  Sure enough they were catching a few crappie here and there to make the evening worthwhile.  With fresh holes drilled we got a quick measurement . . . a few inches short of three feet of ice.  I don't ever remember it being this thick, this late. 

My ice out thought at this point is May 1st, really late.  (:

A friend of mine had these motors sitting around the shop too long and I happen to have a hull looking for a horsepower upgrade so...........This one however will not be used for ice fishing.

We have had a warmish winter here in Northern Utah but just when you think winter is gone, it comes back. I had one day at 58 degrees and then the next-one...a foot of snow and then 2 more feet the next day. Snow, rain and sleet last week also and yesterday 60 degrees and clouding up today. Trying to rebuild my V179-- Hope this is the last of it.

Thanks Chad. I enjoyed that water ski back in the early 70's. Water skied every Saturday morning on Bald Eagle Lake. The O'Brien water ski was a work of art with the inlayed wood patterns. And every ski was different.

Ha!.... I wanna get my new Glastron out of storage ;) This would have been great in Jan or Feb, not the middle of April. I think we are looking at the middle of May before the lakes open up as most still have 2' of ice on them. Hope I'm wrong and it happens sooner.

In Acton ME, our shallow lake is open, but we've had two solid days of sleet/hail/snow/rain and the wind is blowing like crazy!
