put all my ice fishing gear in the shop and will hang it all when I am home again and get the boat ready for some open water. Looks like it will be here long before it was open water last year. Tight lines everyone and hopefully see you out on the water soon catching some fish.

Brought the boat home a couple days ago. Have a new starter ordered for the old gal. All 1978 vintage and running great.


Have a great season.

Yeah...Iím ready!

My ice fishing stuff was mothballed today. Thought about pulling the boat out of the yard and into the driveway, but I figured it would be the ultimate jinx. Besides the canal and most other water is still iced over.

But, Iíve got enough flies tied to equip a couple dozen fly fishers for the next two or three years. And...Iím still tying.

Canít beat those old Johnsonís. Mine is a 1987 30 hp.

Got the starter in. The motor is running great. Planning on greasing the trailer wheel bearings in the morning and hopefully splash it Thursday. Time to go fishing..

Have all the gear in the boat, just need to put the oil in the lower units and ready, one lake is ice free and boat ramp open so might try and get it in if the weather cooperates for me, and if I can get the greenhouse finished.  Good luck to everyone might see some out on the water here soon.
