My 6 yr old grandson. first time out on the ice. dressed him up warm and got him out there. Thought it was a riot sliding and falling on the ice. he can't wait to get back out there. No fish, still had a ball. He was so upset that he lost one of his new gloves. Had to go to WalMart to get a replacement pr. A new Ice fisherman was born that day!

At an ice fishing tournament in Erie Pennsylvania for panfish, I caught my first steelhead ever and it took second place in last seasons Iceshanty Online Tournament! It almost didn't fit through the hole!  Also, the winners of the tournament was a father and son team and it was their first time ever fishing in a tournament.  They ended up taking home $1000! It was awesome to see a young kid and his father enjoying the ice season together and now they are hooked!  The video of the tournament is on youtube.

First ice in northern MN last November, and among a few smaller fish, my buddy ended up catching a thick 25" walleye. The ice and water were so clear we watched the fish for the last 10-15 feet of the fight, really a neat way to start the season.

Here’s a picture from my trip to Hubbard Lake in Michigan late last year. We got skunked for the day and half that we got to fish. We had a great time on the ice though doing our best to try to find some fish.

That was my first fish on a tipup. I had had these things in my garage for at least 20 years. I finally decided to try them out. I bought some #20 flourocarbon and some chubs and gave it a shot. I was in shock when I looked out the window and a flag was up! And the handle was spinning! It wasn't very big but that fish turned me into a diehard tipup guy. Now I have #80 flourocarbon and I'm gonna set my bait tank back up this winter. Here fishy fishy.
Every plastics manufacturer claims plastics outfish livebait. So now I use livebait just for the increased challenge.

When the fish are not biting out ice fishing in South Dakota can always put a smile on your face with a potato chip bag,,,

When you have the tip-up set up all day and when you're packing, you realized you had a catfish on it for lord knows how long lol

Earliest I’ve ever been on the ice November 18th 2018, also my father’s 58th birthday and my niece was born later that afternoon. And here I am out on the ice, with walleyes on my mind and on my line.

My 7 year old daughter got to finally go ice fishing with me this past year. She jigged up this little bluegill all by herself on her first trip, and I was not able to go ice fishing by myself after that.  Now I have her and her 9 year old brother along for all my trips.
