Never been. I wanted to go last winter, a guy has an ice auger( with engine) said he'd take me. Well he couldn't get it running so he brought it over for me to fix. I did get it running. But no safe ice the next weekend.

It was a horrible season last year. The only ice I got on was for the walleye jamboree in the soo.. I'm itching to get back on the ice!

I didn't even bother last year, watched my dad fall through twice. Potentially downing is not worth some gills.

Stoked for this winter, just praying for a consistent winter... Pure michigan.

I can't wait! A couple guys at the job site I was at yesterday were drilling holes for deck posts, just hearing and smelling the exhaust from the auger put me in the mood to go home & grab the new Eskimo shanty, vexilar , & the rest of my gear & hit the ice.

We used to do a lot of it while I was up in Houghton, sadly I think we did much much more drinking than fishing. I never thought I'd ice fish in New Mexico, but I did once last year and will probably make another trip this year.
