Yup. I'm too stubborn & cheap to drive north when my numbers spot is 5 mins. away  >:( Local ice is a wash-out. Sorry for the high-jack-- more pics of PB slabs!

my biggest is 12", but i hooked one during summer that was much bigger. he got off right next to the boat. this year the water is really low, so i'm hoping the fish will be more concentrated.

15" and 1.7 lbs through the ice on Mississippi River Pool 12 back in 2000.  Largest ever is 15.5" and 2.2 lbs at Lake Rathbun, IA in 2012.  Still looking for one of those real monsters!
