Awesome fish and report Deano,

Looks like some dandy gills there.

Yeah, those gills look like real bulls!! It is always nice to find a place with fish like that in it that hopefully no one else knows about.

ah the scrappy gills...it still amazes me what a fight these put up, especially the "bulls". wait till I get out to the crappie pond and post those pics (pigs), those fish will demolish a bucket of minnows faster than 3-4 guys can put away a bucket of chicken on game day... tongue.gif

Nice fish Deano! I went out to silver lake for a few hours after work yesterday and only managed a 3 inch sunny! lol Water was pretty high and moving fast.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
