Nice list Shaun! Looks like a great season for you. I'm getting the open water itch bad, too. ;)

y'all are a bunch of sissies. ice season is alive and well.. and is going to get better as the spring wears on. I feel ya on open water though, I'll be checking out crappies and maybe trying a walleye spot during a few free afternoons.

you'll still catch me on turquoise in may though.

Nice to have options - metro open water or mountain ice. Plan on taking advantage of both for the next month or so.

Blue sky spring ice fishing. Open water can wait, you guys don't know what your missing. stay on those crowded metro lakes, I like having the lake to myself on beautiful spring days.

It kinda helps when you live 150ft from the lake-:eek:

This.

Best day of fishing ever was fishing on top of Williams fork in mid April with 65 degree temps and 3 feet of Ice. Makes for easy drilling and dragging.

I'd much rather do that than get up at 10 pm and fish some metro area's reservoir's dam face and trip over rocks all night chasing a fish that's smarter than most people I know, (much respect to the walleye guys who put their time in).
