Very nice...unfortunately I was working instead...may as well have been fishing for everything I managed to accomplish.

God grant me the Serenity to accept the size of the fish I catch,
the Courage not to fib about it,
and the Wisdom to know that no one would believe me anyway.

just curious, are those fish suspended over the main basin or holding shallower and what are you using on your tip-ups for them?  would love to figure out how to catch them in the ponds here in NY

actually caught all of them jigging in about 2-4ft of water although the action was not furious by any means. just had the tip up in there for reference. caught them all on a firetiger fiskas.

Nice fish! 

I've seen you post some nice fish pics, If you don't mind my asking, those from out of state or just way up Northern Maine?

Wow that last one was a beauty
It doesn't matter if you didn't catch anything as long as you had fun.

I wish I could fish my big brookie lakes in the winter, but a 10 mile hike in 12 ft. of snow where nobody fishes isn't my kind of thing :-[ :P ;)
if anybody from michigan will help me out with the lakes and stuff up here I'd really appreciate it since I'm new to the area.

i don't usually plan my trips too far ahead just usually go out on a whim. probably try for some trout again early next week but will more than likely go for pike once or twice before next week. the trout fishing has slowed down a lot so probably will start concentrating on perch and pike for the next few months.
