    I have interest, but no can do during that timeframe. :annoyed:
    End of Jan have a winter camping trip with my kid's cub pack, trip to MD, and early Feb have a snowmobile trip to Tupper and possible closing on new house. Just a bit overscheduled.
    Sounds like a great time though!

    You and I can commiserate about our GM products together! (And laugh at the little truck people)

    So the only real thing I can't work around would be Feb 9th-10th which is the Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby. And the weekend prior is probably no good, we usually go snowmobiling Super Bowl weekend.

    That’s sounds good to me. Also the first weekend in Feb in Meredith Pond hockey Classic so I’m out for that weekend and the weekend after the fishing derby I’m in Pittsburg NH chasing my wife up mountains.

    Enjoy. I've got the ice tires on my bike for a few more weekends before I put it away and break out the sled.

    Alright. Went out this weekend and it seems there's still a good amount of open water. Was able to find 6-10 of ice at a lot of places too. Hoping with this cold air more will become available.

    I've got one pond somewhat local to me that always produces. It's thin now, but I'd like to get out on it Saturday to see how it is. My backup is a few locations out by Keene, NH and also to the north west area of Worcester, MA. I'll take a final count at the end of this week to see what will be most accessable for folks.

    I won't be able to account for everyone's travels but I'll do my best.

    Ah sweet, I fished Silver Lake in Belmont and Webster the weekend before Christmas. In my area I've been on Clement and Island Pond in Washington. Both had very good, clear ice.

    This week I think Maine is getting some snow so I may go to Millinocket to do some sledding.

    Bingo. And if your doing out of state you can always do a 1 day license or multiple days.


    Or I can just get an out of state mass license for less than I can get a resident NH license :annoyed::frusty:

    I think they have scaled that back quite a bit :(

    And as far as the ice fishing goes let us know what day you pick

    Any luck with the browns out there ? That's the fish I'm trying to refine my skills with. Bows, Lakers, brookies I have no issues with. Brown seem to alude me. And bass aren't even a challenge.

    Going out Friday. Looking good for the weekend. They have good ice on island pond ?

    Plenty of ice on Island Pond and I got one small brown that day, was the only flag I got. Few years ago I got a respectable brown out of that lake, was the only other time I fished there:
