Well, I was finally able to make it out and pull a handful of fish thru the ice. I had been waiting for another good cold snap, as I just wasn’t hearing too much for reports of guys venturing out on the ice in the area.
The lake I was on had 5-6″ of good, solid, clear ice in the areas that I checked. It was nice to see that the snow missed us as well, as these cold temps should only help with making sufficient ice thru the rest of the week.
As I said earlier, I was able to pull a handful of fish thru the hole. I was setup on a shoreline break in about 27 fow. Had one walleye worthy of keeping and the rest were released to grow for another year.
It was nice to get out, drill a few holes, breath in some 2-stroke fumes and set the hook!
Hoping to get out again on Wednesday, as the temps sound a bit warmer so a guy can maybe hop around a bit.
