  2. couldn't find any big crappie, but we messed with a school of them 8-10" and they kept us amused pretty much all day while we waited for pike flags to fly.

      That will definitely pass the time waiting for the flags to pop. Our weather is really messing with me man, we finally got some cold temps this week to build on ...more the 2 inches of ice and it snows 8 inches right before the cold front to insulate it and now its raining and 38 ugghhhhh!!! I cant take it so I booked a trip in Minnesota on Upper Red Lake in February, so Im sure it will be a high of -28 than lol

    Chain Pickerel with a tip up

    1. Zach, only some of the coves (probably most of them actually, woodport might be sketchy) this ice was close to 5" the main lake mostly iced over recently but ...more is probably only an inch or two.

  5. after we were not allowed to enter the lake to fish our preferred spot (not sure who to blame the guys that leave a mess or the guy who now won't let anyone ...more on because of that, but the private property crap is getting annoying) so we came up with a plan B and did pretty ok. Nabbed a bunch of perch, plenty of them nice size, some pickerel with a few big ones and a variety of other species (bullhead, crappie, gold shiner)

  9. First trip of 2019, after work quickie, didn't get skunked, i'll take it! only had about an hour so i huffed it to a good spot, had another similar sized ...more one jump off the barbless hook that everyone claims doesn't effect the hookup/keep hooked ratio... also hooked something big in the current, but honestly it happened so quick i'm not sure if it was a stick or a fish haha
