    How far south did you have to pull it. Land looks really brown in the back ground.

    I heard there where boats on the river by Stanton a week or so ago already, I didn't see it myself but seems reasonable. Still gonna be a while around Bismarck i think, plus this snow is going to make it muddy once the melt starts.

    I still have some ice fishing to do around ND and a trip to Winnipeg yet, so i hope the river holds of for a few more weeks.

    I couldn't care less about your guys' ice fishing season. Lakes will have ice on them for quite a while yet. The river can open up at any point. And 5575, that trip to the Columbia looks amazing. Bucket list item for sure.

    Now why would you have to go and hope the Missouri stays frozen, just to you can ice fish elsewhere? That's plain mean. Because you're not ready to fish the river, you don't want anyone else to go and catch your fish?

    I'm kidding, kinda, but not really.

    Its not that i want the river to stay frozen, but it does really suck when a guy is on a trip to Winnipeg or a ski trip to MT in March and the river opens up early and people are hammering walleye in your backyard. First world Bismarck problems, I want my spring hobbies to line up perfectly dammit!

    I, for one, know how bad Big Sky sucks in the spring. Hate it. And I can imagine how tough it is to struggle through a Lake Winnipeg trip. You have my shoulder to cry on.

    Dude..

    It's been good. It's get bad when the idiots start coming that won't let the trailer drain before they pull up the ramp. Watched a fancy sparkley ranger dude back down the ramp and skidded all the way down. He panicked and got pretty excited. I had to chuckle a bit. It doesn't seem too silted in.

    Don’t chuckle too much. I’ll be that guy in a sparkly ranger next weekend if I hve my way. Key thing is to keep those tires straight. I’ve puckered up plenty of times

    Throw a spade in the pickup. There is a sand pile at the top of the ramp, throw a little down and it makes a huge difference.

    I buy those big bags of sand at menards for $3 a piece each winter. One usually meets its demise for boat ramp traction.

    Never will understand why you tailrace guys don't invest in a roll of chains that you can put down in the spring when this ice crap is a problem and then roll it back up when it's not needed. Seems you fight this ice every spring and every fall. Twould be a good agenda item for the G&F to spend some of that increased tag money on that would actually do some sportsmen some good. Quote "Safety" and you might just get what you need. Just a thought. Tight Lines Everyone!!!

    True freedom is not the ability to do whatever one wants or as one pleases without restraint, rather, true freedom is the ability to do what one ought to do.
