      Haha! Fish gotta eat! One thing most folks donโ€™t realize is a bass is ranked as one of the most aggressive predators. If itโ€™ll fit, they eat it. Muskie, walleyeโ€ฆ..they ...more are more particular. Bass eat it all, including their own.
    3. Wow

  3. Finally got out since ice fishing and caught a few decent bass on spinner bait and Sencos. Hardest part about this pond is catching bluegills small enough for bait. ...more I should be eating these things..... but these will work! (FORESHADOWING)

  4. 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! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. Had a long walk back to the big gill pond this morning. Deep snow for walking and 3" of slush on top again๐Ÿ˜ž. 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.

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.
