Hey guys,

just wanted to share a couple pictures. The smiles say it all! lol Both fish were a personal best! Jay is holding the top fish and his was 10 pounds. Matt's was 7 pounds. Both fish were VERY healthy and returned to pull hard another day!

Thanks for the help Finn and Stfcatfish! You guys are awesome. Definitely not a good idea to drive on the ice...but that meant hauling all of our stuff around....uhhhhhhhh. Definitely not as young as we used to be!!

Nice environmental fish shots, Doop. Thanks for sharing them! grin.gif

A bit easier to fit the whole fish in the pic when it's a horizontal hold (and easier on the fish). grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Thanks Steve,

I appreciate the advice. I did know better than to hold the fish vertically. That got lost in the moment though...lol

Not a bad picture for a cell phone huh!? smile.gif

From what I could see Finn...I found myself looking over your way a lot as you yanked slimers from the ice! lol

When my buddy spoke to you I was marking fish after fish on the vexilar but nothing would bite. I was using an angel eye jr. with the head of a small smelt and nothing. It was a heck of a long drive but as you wrote...well worth the time and effort. Next up...LOTW in March!!

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
