1. This beauty was suspended about 3 feet off of the bottom. Raised the jig up to her and BAM! 15" and weighed exactly 2lbs.

  2. Finally got some good ice around here. Headed to the pond up by Solon this morning. Good to see the big gills are still there. No jumbos today, but a few 9.5 ...more & 10 inchers!😏😏😁

    2. Looks like you need to put some ice in that cooler next time.
    3. Some people need to "stay in your lane bro"! πŸ‡±πŸ‡·πŸ‡±πŸ‡·
    4. Ice fishing they can be picky. Most of them we caught just grabbed the minnow softly, but some hammered it.

    11. Thanks everyone for all the banter! Made us all laugh today! We ARE in North Dakota, no size limits. And Chris said it all.... little fish don't hurt the population ...more and they taste so good! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»
    12. Smaller fish taste better and fish don't take long to grow to that size...does much less impact on the fisheries than big fish.

      Thanks Buddy. just had to set a Sconnie straight.

      go ahead and look at the ND Game and Fish Website, and im guessing those are more than 10" walleyes. we have white bass that are 20+ inches here. My guess is ...more those are around 14". perfect eaters.
    15. will you guys take it back to Facebook!!! if you look a Robert profile you will see he is a well traveled fisherman.
    16. even if that is the case jerry (which i doubt) Why keep 10in walleye?

      what planet are you on Sammy? Hes fishing Devils Lake! There are NO SIZE LIMITS. only a bag limit of 5 walleyes per day.
    23. Jerry Scott 0
      Sammy there are no size limits. period.
    24. Not sure which america your talking about jerry, but in north america there is definitely size limits! Im just wondering the limit cuz those walleye look a little ...more small. I hope he's not posting pics of illegal fish. and I know those tiny perch should still be in the lake swimming!!
    25. Jerry Scott 0
      Sammy B, there isn't one. This is America....ha

  4. Brutally cold up here the last few days. We left early on Thursday night to stay ahead of the blizzard. We didn't even get to fish Saturday because it was so ...more bad. Finally located a few fish today, but it's been tough! Biggest Perch so far and not many of them. Locals are saying it is a terrible year for the perch! Off to look for walleyes tomorrow at a neighboring lake.

    1. Lol Bryan. We had chubs on tip-ups the last day to no avail. It was so cold they would've frozen solid in the hole. We have had great luck in the past up there ...more though!

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.
