Came back from school to see friends and do a little fishing so we went out to the Centerville Ice Fishing contest, didnt catch anything, and it was a little chilly out there without a shack, but it was still a great time.

I took my father in law out ice fishing for his first time. He is is originally from Taiwan, and it does't get any colder than 40 degrees in winter there. So basically the idea of walking out on a frozen chunk of ice and drilling holes is a foreign concept. I took him out to one of my favorite little metro honey holes and we pounded crappies and sunfish non stop. In fact, in the first ten minutes we caught about ten decent crappies. And to top it all off, he caught the largest sunfish I've personally seen from Metro waters. It was a gigantic orange bellied hybrid gill that absolutely dwarfed the 8" gills we had in a pile...had to be pushing a pound. I felt great to take a guy out on the ice for the first time and catch a bunch of nice fish.

I have talked to some of the oldtimers about sunny fishing and they said the real big sunnies (slabs) are to be had in deep water 30' to 40' with the most lightest line possible. I have yet to try that this winter but will give it a try after the reg. season ends.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
