Big sunfish and bass action

I got out with some friends for some late ice sunfish action, and had a great bite going on. I got more 10 inch bluegills than i can remember on an ice fishing outing. plus bonus largemouth bass up to four pounds and some good perch, sunny and 50 degrees too, cant beat that!
I got my fish on a lindy rattlin' flyer spoon with lots of red maggots for bait, also got some on a fatboy jig. Upsizing was the key to getting bigger fish. smaller plastics also worked, but you had to sort through more small fish. Most of the fish were in 8 to 11 feet.
Get out while you can, this late ice won't be around long, and the fish are really feeding now!

Big bluegills
