Yeah, I'll be back this friday and saturday. last week I only caught 2, both real nice 3 1/2- 4 lbs. target 30-55 fow water. I got one at 42 ft and the other at 30. buckshot rattle spoons with minnow heads work. these fish will chase, get'em worked up and then they nail it. I was on the WFC on the lower part of the lake. first Ice these fish can be speared in shallow water and as winter goes on they go deeper.( fall spawners )I pulled mine out of the smoker yesterday and they are awesome eating. If I get some more this week I'm going to try a fish boil. There might be some better lakes out there but I target eyes at the same time and maybe a stray laker too.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
