    We should have a good year out on the ice this year. With no one fishing the fish should put on some weight.

    Why? The fishing is great that time of year when they lower it.

    I hunt waterfowl that time of the year and getting a boat into many of my spots is hard with low water levels. Plus I can get away from those fisherman that think it's ok to drop anchor 30 yards from my decoys when I'm hunting. And sit there and fish.
