  6. Headed to a Farm Pond this afternoon produced a meal of 10.5" crappie and 9" bluegills. Had to go through quite a few gills to get the bigger ones. Lost ...more a few more crappies at the hole... uggggg! Had a couple nice Largemouth close to the hole too. Good fighters, guessing 3-4 pounders. Lots of drag going when those were hooked!

  8. Finally found a farm pond with good ice. Amazing how almost 2 weeks of temps of -16° to +10° and still not have plenty of ice on ponds. Some only had 2"! ...more Crazy!!! But did great on this one today. Everything from bass to catfish. Crappies were the highlight for sure. Biggest was 13.5" weighing 1#5oz! Big gills and a nice catfish just under 5 pounds.

    2. Robert Coleman
      Snow is*.... stupid phone! Lol
    3. Robert Coleman
      I know Jacob. Crazy! Never seen this much variation within a body of water. Don't know if the 6" of snore outs insulating that much, but it's been ...more below zero for highs for over a week!!!! Hopefully this weekend will be good everywhere! 👍👍👍👍
    4. Jacob Anderson
      Can't believe you don't have that much ice yet! We had about 3 inches when I came home for winter break and now we have about a foot. Nice fish!
    5. Jimbo Harwood
      Great Fish bud!
    6. Robert Coleman
      Lol Morris! How many extra suits do you carry with you on the boat?? You could make out like a bandit by the end of the trip!!!!!!👍👍👍👍👍👍👊
    7. Morris Campbell
      Usually its the one that was laughing at my 100 mph foul weather suit and ski mask who want to buy it from me when we get ready to run again!!
    8. Morris Campbell
      They all say that until we take off across the lake at 45 MPH.
    9. Robert Coleman
      Right on Garrett! 👍👊
    10. Ha ha thirty! We'd be in shorts in that heatwave.
    11. Morris Campbell
      Yeah, you guys are sending it this way. We will have lows in the 30s this week
    12. Robert Coleman
      Haha Morris.... it's coming!
      Chris.... I have NO idea how the thickness varies so much. Plenty of snow on top insulating, but can't believe this cold ...more can't get through!
    13. Frank Sharkey
    14. Was there snow on the ponds, we've had -25 for three nights now there's 22" of ice on the lake.

      Went Saturday and caught over 40 Crappie. Some were undersized so we started culling. Ended up with 15 keepers. 2 of which exceeded 2 lbs. Beautiful weather here ...more in Central Florida. Fishing in Lake Monroe between Seminole and Volusia Counties. Been a great season so far and the best is yet to come for the next 3 months.Come on down and enjoy this Flrorida winter for a few days and catch yourself some slabs.

Highlight Reel


I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
