On a tip from Chad of hungry fish and solid ice, me and Jack headed up for a piece of the action!
We were not dissapointed , the ice conditions were excellent, around 6 inches thick with just enough snow to quiet our steps over the shallow roaming fish!
I went out to where it looks like people were fishing before with frozen over holes. Soon had a fish on. They were in a weed bed about a foot off the bottom. They were quite fussy, but I found the smaller tungsten jig with a nuggie tail to be irresitable to them. We also got a few largemouth bass and walleyes on our panfish tackle, fun indeed! Chad came out later in the day and iced some good fish too.I am glad I got this chase in, it looks like I won't get out again for 2 weeks, I will be at the ice fishing show next weekend. Hope to see you there!
Look real close on this one, you can see my reflection in the lure!

This is what the sky looked like when we got off the lake, no color changes done at all!
