I am anxious for ice fishing to start but not that anxious! With the cold weather scheduled for next week, maybe with a little luck we will be able to make it out on Red pretty soon. I have checked the webcams around Mille Lacs Lake and there is no ice that has formed yet but I suppose this is not surprising as it was 60 out a week ago. The Accuweather forecast shows that after December 1st the bottom falls out of the low temperatures and maybe December 17th is the more practical date Mark Applen and I can pull up our Salem Ice Cabins for a fishing weekend. We are anxious to get up and see what JR did to the place as he called me in October to tell us he's remodeled the bar somewhat. I have check some of the webcams from up north and the big body of waters are still wide open however some of the smaller lakes appear to have froze over. Either way it will be what is is as going through the ice is not a desirable situation. Last year we pulled our wheel houses up but had to fish our portables as one could only walk out on the ice. I suppose it was good exercise!

Next week is our annual Fall TTA (The Transformer Association) meeting in Naples, Florida. I was on the board of directors, including serving as it's President for 2 years. In that time, instead of giving a feel god speech I started telling Ole and Lena jokes, something to highlight my Wisconsin up bringing. Well it's been pretty successful and even though I am no longer on the board, the group expects a few Norwegian jokes to be told like this one: Ole went into the Lumber yard to get some boards. Sven was working so Ole looked at him and said " I need to buy some boards there, Sven" "How long do you want'em Ole?" "Vell Sven, a long time, see I'm building a house ya know!"
