1. My entertainment for the morning. This little guy, (fat field mouse), came running out by me on the ice. He came pretty close and stayed by me for about two minutes ...more before continuing across the WHITE snow! Thought for sure I would see a hawk or another bird of prey grab him before he made it, but the little guy made it all the way across! He needs to buy a lottery ticket! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  2. Pretty slow morning. Tried a couple of new ponds that I've never ice fished before. Mostly small gills and bass. Took a while to even find some marks.

  4. Had a long walk back to the big gill pond this morning. Deep snow for walking and 3" of slush on top again😞. But some of the big ones were biting, so it was ...more worth it. Foggy this morning so it made the trees look pretty cool! Good morning overall.

Lol I can't tell everyone enough: if you want to catch a fish of a lifetime and your PB Largemouth, you HAVE to go see Capt Morris Campbell!!!!! You will not be disappointed! Proud to say, over the years, he has become family to Lori and I. Thank you again Brother, for another amazing trip!

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.
