I ice fish both Chautauqua Lake Ny. & Kinzua Reservoir in Pennsylvania. I do not hit the ice till I hear it is at least 3" thick. My schedule allows me to get out on the ice for the 1st time any day of the week. So here is the contest.

Pick the day and time that you think this chubby little angler will first hit the ice.

The winner will recieve his/her choice of a $30 Gift certificate for the restaurant, liquor store or beer they so desire.

This is meant to be a fun type contest.

Winner will be determined by my post here as I head out the door for my first ice fishing excursion.

All entries must be posted by December 15th at midnight as I don't think there will be good ice anywhere before then. Good luck to all!

The way the weather forecast looks for the next couple of weeks, no ice any time soon!!!

True it isnt looking good right now. After me 1st year ever with no deer during two states gun seasons I am beginning to worry we may not have ice!

Looking like Scurrys February date might be the right pick! You folks that predicted December & early January dates are in trouble. Appears to me that the winning water might be a Chapman Dam type place.

I will be really bummed if I do not get on Kinzua ice again this year!

Keep that boat of yours on the launch pad Hoff!!!

Gary if I would happen to win you can bet we will be sharing the booty on the Ice ""For medicinal purposes"" of course, to ward of the chill.

Right about that Treerat! BuckMaster,Firemedic3314 and Scurry still have a chance. Though I really can't figure out why Scurry picked Monday Feb. 5th ????

If the weather stays cold and maybe gets a little colder there may be enough ice for me to get on Chapman this Saturday for Warren County Winterfest. If that happens ole Firemedic3314 will be the winner. Gonna be close!!

Firemedic3314 is looking real strong! Will there be enough ice on Chapman come Saturday? That is the question!

Firemedic3314 is looking real strong! Will there be enough ice on Chapman come Saturday? That is the question!

Based on your post about you being a little too thick around the middle, I think that there will not be enough ice to keep you afloat! You might need 6+ inches to do it!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Kiss my butt BuckMaster!! This Saturday at Warren County Winterfest is looking real strong for my first ice fishing outing. If I was a betting man Firemedic3314 would be a 2-1 favorite right now.

I am glad that he is also a man that enjoys a few Senior Soda Pops. Perhaps he and I can get together and kill a bottle of Grey Goose together! :occasion5:

I dont bet......but.....I will drink up with yas gary if I am so lucky to win.....although, you can have the Grey Goose ( I hear the goose is better than Fredrick...your own words bro) I'll stick to the suds. Although the Boss Lady likes her Jose Quervo....straight no salt or fruit chit....so make sure ya got the bottle of top shelf ready!!

Buck Master

Grizzly is still an "ice virgin" for the 2006-2007 winter season.

Grizzly: You must stop somewhere next Saturday and ice fish! Don't tell me you're too busy...just do it!

Grizzly Gary
01-28-2007, 06:23 PM
OK here is the scoop. I did walk out on the ice during Winterfest at Chapman Dam. Was out videoing anglers with the camera man for a Winterfest promotional DVD.

I did not fish. So as it stands it looks like there will be no winners in this contest.

I am leaving for Harrisburg Pa. to attend the Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show Friday morning. I will not be back till late Saturday. There is an outside chance that I will hit Chautauqua Sunday afternoon as I am needing more fish for the Grizzly Gary Game Feast to benefit Disabled American Veterans to be held on March 31st at the Russell Volunteer Fire Hall.

That is one day after BuckMasters selected date.

Looks like i'll have to drink those Senior Sodas all by myself! Who'd a thunk it would take this long before there was fishable ice?

you gotta be kiddin me, all you had to do was take a rod and make one little jiggle , you can't even do that! LOL thanks Gary, I had the 28th! :wink:

Figures...the little chubby cheap grizzled ( shriveled) cheapskate.....

Now there are 2 schools of thought on this one Gary.....lemme make my points then you will see where I is comin from.....And everyone else can weigh in on it too...

1st point: Gary Said:






Pick the day and time that you think this chubby little angler will first hit the ice.

Now....according to that statement by the Grizzled one......he was on the ice Saturday doing the video....so technically someone was correct in choosing Saturday,January 27, 2007.

Now for the opposing 2nd point:


Winner will be determined by my post here as I head out the door for my first ice fishing excursion.


So in my opinion....technically Gary's right and I'm right.....what do ya'll think?

( Course by now its a moot point cause Gary already drank well more than 30 bucks worth of booze this weekend.....)

( just remember Gary....someones always watchin yas....besides its all in good fun)

Mighty Mike

I say grizzly pays. You were on the ice so dont be cheap. Pay the guy. I bet he did drink the prize already. i just wish he asked me to help him. he he he!

Grizzly Gary
01-31-2007, 06:10 PM
Ok the last date projected was by BuckMaster and that date is Feb. 3rd. I can tell you that aint gonna happen cause I will be in Harrisburg that day. I may get out the 4th in the afternoon but that is not guaranteed cause the wife wants me to go get another load of firewood.

So that all being said we go back to Firemedic3314 and his date chosen. Man I swear I need to have a Philadelphia Lawyer sitting next to me when I post these things! :lol:

So I will let you all decide. I did go onto the ice at Chapman on the day Firemedic3314 chose. But I did not fish. John Lorenzo was right in that I should have taken a rod & just jiggled a line in a hole for a minute and things would be cut & dry.

So tell me what you all think. Pay Firemedic3314 or screw him! :twisted: :shock: :lol: :lol:

Would you have fished if you were not videoing? You were on the Ice so I think you should Pay .

Though I really can't figure out why Scurry picked Monday Feb. 5th ????

Gary read the very first sentence above, last I knew Monday Feb 5th was a day in a week or are we all in limbo today?

OK I have decided to award Firemedic3314 the win! Nothing worse than grey area regarding a contest or event. Will call you FM3314 and makes arrangements to award you your just due. Of course I hope to help you consume your winnings! :lol:

Thanks to all who participated.

Just want to say after many weeks of waiting and harassing the shriveled one......he finally came thru with the gift cert. Many thanks Gary .....BossLady and i enjoyed steamed clams, steamed king crab legs, filet mignon and several "soda pops" ....all on you!!!

Would have invited yas....but then we would have had to wait 3 more months for you to get back to us on when.....so we thought of you.......BRIEFLY......whilst we were chowin down.



Seriously though Gary........thanks Bro.

Sorry it took so long FM3314. I get spinning in so many different directions I forget things way to often. Still have to get up to the rod guys house and get Treerats rod he won.

I apologize to any for anytime it has taken me longer to do something than it should. To much to do and not enough time.

Glad you enjoyed your dinner!
