Default First ice.

Well, sure looking like it's going to be a late start this year. Maybe the latest we've ever had? Granby has just in the last week getting into the twenties at night.

Buhahahaha! Well I've been keeping my freezer open and throwing bags of ice in the lakes.

If we are taking bets..... my guess is at least here on the Western slope we won't be ice fishing much before Christmas. Hopefully I am wrong as I'm looking forward to getting back on the ice.

I hiked in to one of my early early spots this morning. Wide open. Iced that area first week of November last year and late October the two years before. Saw elk well above 11k still. Good luck. I probably won't try again for another two or three weeks.

I remember your reports early in the season last year! They got me excited for the cold.

We should set up a "Squares" bet like for football scores and everybody PayPals $1.

The squares will be the December and January calendar and we pick a body of water to watch until it ices over.

You don't get to pick the squares. When all the squares are purchased we put all the names in a hat and just pick one by one to get through the dates.

Evergreen would be a good body of water since they have a live webcam.
