After a long break from the Blogger & website world I'm going to try and make a comeback. 2 years ago I started TrailtheOutdoors.com and it started out on a good foot, but after some complications, growing to rapidly, and not being able to keep up, I shut it down. Soon after I joined the Blogger world with the Illinois Wisconsin Fishing Blog. Blake Hamilton took me in and let me contribute to his growing blog, in which I am deeply grateful for. As the hunting season approached in Illinois this past fall, I turned all my focus toward that and fell off the grid for awhile. Along with the holidays and my family it was hard to even keep up to say the least. New years came, and I kept telling myself I wanted to get back in the game and start to explore some new options such as podcasts, more videos, and some more photography type work. It should be an interesting and challenging journey along the way, but I hope you all tune in and follow along with me during 2013.
So far this year Ice fishing has been phenomenal. I have been drilling holes and setting hooks like you wouldn't believe. I had my first bad outing of the year this past Sunday mostly due to the weather. I will be heading back out this evening to try getting into some slab crappies. As of recently the hot setup has been a gold teardrop jig tipped with either a wax worm or a 1" gulp smelt minnow.
I should have a report from tonight's outing up in the next few days. Please add my blog to your feed and I hope you all enjoy what is to come in 2013. Tight Lines!
