Very nice.I've never brought anything that big through the ice but there is always tomorrow ;)
There is nothing better than the smile on a childs face when they see the fish come up through the hole.

Measured 32" and 16lbs.  I usually return all these lakers but this one really slammed my lure and gulped it down and I had to keep this one.  Was real good eating.
