It's been years since I've been. Much more sophisticated now as I undrerstand it. I remember 50 years ago freezing my ass off on Red Willow lake (Hugh Butler) with a hand aguer and no shelter spending the day trying to haul in..........anyting. LOL.
Was out there Sunday, 68F, no ice. -20 wind chills tonight :eek:

Wife and I are looking at moving back to Nebraska also. I'm from McCook but looking at the area's around Omaha. Bennington, Elkhorn...etc. Really only thing kind of holding us up is the reality of the astronomical property taxes in Nebraska. I had forgotten about those. Wow.

Looks like some pretty good fishing around there though.
 



Work with a lady (she loves fishing) who moved from Omaha to Mccook, she says the lakes down east are mostly fished out.

The igniter on my furnace went out last night (-2F) Chilly night inside too

Used to fish at Swanson a lot years ago.
 







There are several sand pits north of Holdrege and to the west, they're private but I've heard the ice fishing is phenomenal at times.
Only been to Holdrege once in my life and I didn't even make it to the Tower. Every conversation since where Holdrege gets brought up I get asked if I made it there. Apparently I missed some quality entertainment...

That's hilarious, the "Tower" was interesting for sure, only went twice before they tore it down.
