    Well, clearly she sets the bar pretty high. Glad you were able to clear it.;)

    It's not easy being me :p.
    The one court house was in Montrose, Susquehanna county, there's really nothing there for me to get into :D. I walked a lap around town and was back in less than 15 minutes :).

    WoooHoooo! Friends are having their annual Ice fishing party today :D, friends, food, fish & live music. And I don't even fish the hard water! Ice is reported to be 10" thick, that'll work.
    Trout stocking is coming right up also, winter is almost done, right???

    Ice fishing is big at one local lake that's a decent size, but since it's Reading city's reservoir, no boats of any kind on it. Ice fishing is the only way to access some parts of the lake, so it's popular. I tried it once. One more thing that you either spend a good bit of time and money to do it the right way, or feel like a moron for trying.:rolleyes:

    Last year I didn't even set foot on the ice :p, I staid on shore with the music an gas grills full of food :), lots of venison made several different ways and flavors, even a few fish on the grills :D.

    This one is a 29 acre private lake that is in danger from the DEP people, they'd like to drain it and construct a
    " bigger an better dam" even though the existing one is concrete. The issue is the famous Camptown Ladies
    (doodah, doodah) are only couple miles down stream.

    One local pond is scheduled for trout stocking on March 4th, have a feeling they'll have to cut holes in the ice to stock it. Spring is on the way, right??

    They told me the fish hit good early but it had slowed to almost nothing by the time we got there so most of the adults were on the bank around the bon fire or feeding off the two grills and tables full of food. Some kids were still fishing but it was slow. One of my buddies told me he caught all he wanted to an then gave em all away, something about not going to clean a sled full of perch with a hang over.

    Just another excuse for us red necks to get together, two of us have passed on sense last year's party.

    They had three generations of one family on the ice fishing earlier in the day. The kids and dogs had a blast on the ice, I staid off it cause if I fall I'll prob break a hip and be laid up for a while :oops:.
    I don't care for pike - pickerel myself unless it's smoked.

    Same here. We only got a inch or so of snow then another inch of ice & freezing rain from this last storm. Just a mess, just another PIA storm.
    I didn't even start the 6x6 up, screw it, it'll be gone soon.
