I got out to the Alexandria area for what could be the last ice outing of the season. I found many panfish really close to the bottom of the ice, mabye feeding on flies emerging in the holes, or on baitfish eating the flies.
You could see them clearly, I made a few videos of strikes I will post later, but they were skittish about any movement above the holes and I got more and bigger fish staying back from the hole and watching the line. The best bait was a jumbo wedgee in red glow or pink, got some on black too. Also iced some fish on a 1.5 inch radical glow blue tube.
