We got out on Como lake and cut lots of holes in shallower near the pavillion, but no fish were marked in any of them. I was thinking they O2 levels were down, so I moved out deeper closer to the areators were, but not too close, the ice was still 2 feet thick. I dropped a jig down and soon had a big hungery school of crappies willing to play. we got to drilling about 50 new holes in the area for the kids clinic. That scatterd the fish quite a bit and made the bite pretty tough when the kids got there.
I rigged up a palm rod with a 2 mm jig with larva and that was enough to tempt a few finicky panfish and perch to bite!
We tried quite a few tricks to tease those skittish fish to bite, here they try double teaming, using the scratcher and tapping the rod to impart the right movement in the bait .
the best thing seemed to be a slow lift with a light shake or vibration...
