Nearly 70 degrees here in New Jersey today, so as expected, ice fishing is out at least for now. Unexpected plans mean I probably won't fish on the 18th, either.

Last winter was even warmer on a much more consistent basis, and some people believed we would have no ice fishing, but as winter is winter, arctic air masses pressed down and February witnessed ice fishing. So patience has us waiting for what's all but inevitable, though I really would like a good thick ice cover of at least eight or 10 inches. I just like the feel of thick ice under my auger blade signifying a winter that really means it.
