    [pm for location] Got out today at about 2:00. It was a beautiful day and very warm. There was about 4inches of ice. Anyways as soon as we got there-BAM got onto the gills started off fast and never slowed down! It was only about 4ft. deep but we were in the weeds. Tear drops with a waxie was the hop tip. Ended up pulling in 50 keeper gills averaging about 7inches! They all were about 6in to 8in. Today I also caught my PB pumpkin seed It is a little over 8in. but fatter than fat!!!!! Will get it on the scale and let you know the weight. Caught about 10 eight plus inches today. 5 were pumpkin seeds. Talked to some nice fellow fisherman they were getting some perch on small buckshots and such. All together it was a great day out there and couldnt of been better! Check out the pics and video that are soon to come!
    All 50 gills-What a day!
