Felt good to be back on the hardwater!!!
« on: Nov 30, 2005, 12:00 AM »
I pulled my first few fish through the ice this past weekend.  I was just at a little private pond south of Darby.  My wife's family has a little pond on their land that has some pretty good shade.  To my amazement there was already 5 inches of ice on her.  So what else could I do but put a couple of lines in!  The only bait we had in the house was some marshmallows, but they worked beautifully.  I pulled a dozen cutthroat out in about 2 hours with the biggest being about 12 inches.  It felt great to be on the hardwater again!  I hope to try Georgetown lake out this weekend.  I haven't officially heard that it has enough ice yet, but its been cold and only colder the rest of the week, so I'm certain there will be enough ice.  I'll post a report after the trip.
