Another day on the ice chasing Esox
« on: Jan 07, 2013, 11:25 AM »
Got out yet again to try for that giant gator that has been eluding me.
Off in the morning twilight to see if the big girls are hitting the early buffet table.



I was hoping for a repeat of yesterday when I had a fish as soon as I put my dead stick down. The first fish of the day was this nice 36 incher.



It wasn't nearly as good a bite as yesterday and the fish were a lot more timid.
The dead stick was outfishing the jig. I did get quite a few fish and lost a giant at the hole on the dead stick as well as breaking off another giant on my jig stick.  :(
Finally got that fish I've been after around 1PM. This bruiser taped out around 43 3/4" and hit a black/white Northland Airplane jig.   :thumbsup:

Those fish are incredible, congrats! I was happy just to finally get out and catch a few small bluegill this weekend before our ice melts. I couldn't imagine catching a fish that size thru the ice

Drifter great pictures as usual really nice pike. Where I'm located in south eastern New York the season is just starting . This weeks weather forcast calls for a few days of rain and daytime temperatures in the mid to upper forty degrees Fahrenheit.
 Have a great season always enjoy your photos and videos.
