Ice Fishing In 08-09 Is Coming To An End!
The temps were perfect for a fantastic ice fishing season all winter. My buddy Brent and I have had a lot of good times fishing the hard water this year, and have caught a bunch of nice fish to reward out hard work.
Here is what I consider the catch of the season. A 2.6 lb Perch fell victim to Brent's hand. This fish was just shy of a state record.
The fish was one of many nice ones caught on this day on Eaton Reservoir!
Here's a couple of nice Crappie I caught minutes after the perch. I couldn't let Brent show me up with that hog Perch!
I absolutely love ice fishing. There is just something about hanging out in my shanty catching 'gills, perch, and bass. We fished hard this winter under some tuff conditions, but I can always rely on Brent to go know matter what the Mother Nature dishes out.
Here's a picture of some of the weather we went through this year. It reached minus zero a bunch of times this year, but we still held strong and fished hard.
All in all it was a fantastic season, and I just can't wait to get my two son's involved in this exciting sport!
I'm sure we'll be able to get on some ice for a few more weeks somewhere on the inland lankes, but I'm ready for summer. It's been a long and cold winter!
It won't be long before I'm on a good pre-spawn Bass bite....And it just can't get here fast enough!
Thanks For Visiting
