YES!!! I got out on the ice today!  Drove the quad down to the lake, popped a hole...yikes 2.5 inches of ice :o  Checked the ice off shore aways, had 5 inches...enough for me!  My friends Tim (Fishinking) and Ryan joined me today, and Camo showed up for the evening bite.

We got out to the spot, and I decided to start the season in style with a round of Sam Adams Winter Lager, possibly the finest ice fishing beer there is ;)


We got into some massive perch right off the bat  ;D


After working a few different areas, we finally found a weedy break that held fish.  They were pretty spread out and extremely finnicky in the morning and early afternoon...we had to use very small jigs to get bit.  Once the evening rolled around, the fish started to concentrate along the break, and we ended up doing very well.  I ended up bringing home 28 fish. Camo's four and the 19 bluegills and 5 crappies pictured here (Ryan threw me a few fish too)

 ;) ::)

very nice spread of gills, WTG and glad you could give my 4 fish a home.  ;)  ;D The least I can do for a last minute usage of a power auger.  :D And the jigpole caught all my fish this evening too, with the 1 nice crappie that Jr. yanked in.  ;D Awesome fishy job.  ;) Hope that we can hook up Monday.  ;) WTG

Is that jig you are using, that I see in that perches lips a chart/green Marmooska?  That is the same jig I caught all my fish on this past week.  Definately a good jig, I didn't like the gap it had from factory so I had to bend my open a bit more.
Real fisherman don't yield to the weather.

yessir. I find that I catch 75% of all my panfish on that color marmooska.  I prefer the bigger sizes, but use smaller when conditions dictate.

Man nice going on your first outting bigred, you really hit the panfish hard.
That perch is a cute wee one, agressive though. :D

I see that you believe in recycling there, Big Red!  Newspaper frying pans!  Add a little salt and pepper, then fire up the burners!  Adds a bit of smokey flavor as well.  Just don't forget to turn on the fan!

Nice mess of fish- I miss gill fishing.
