A few firsts this weekend.

I have never targeted either of these or caught them through the ice. Was great fun fighting the sucker though.

Large suckers are a good fighting fish. I love catch and releasing them in the spring when they spawn up creeks.

That's a nice sucker. Good to see the underdogs getting some love. I don't go after them through the ice, but they are my most frequent target from the boat.

Nice, suckers and carp put up a great fight, I haven't ever targeted them, but have caught a few.

suckers are very good eating fish!  that one would have been a treat. 

why don't you target bass under ice?  its pretty good fishing all winter. you can have a lot of flags if in the rite area.  they also eat ok up to the 16-17"mark.  make great fish sammies on a hoagie. just pulled some fillets out this morning for dinner.

congrats on the different fish being caught. :clap: :clap:
real fishermen don't ask where you caught them.

Sweet! That's a Silver Redhorse, a favorite of mine in open water for C&R and eating.  Never caught one through the ice though, that's pretty cool

I never really fish where Bass are prevalent. I just happen to be looking for Gills and came across that guy and two others. Never did find the gills though.

Nice Green back, We mainly focus bass and some pain fish. Catch and release only on the bass though.
