    my dad and i went out to a pond yesterday to hit the ice. we werent 100% sure if we'd even be able to fish. when we got there we found the ice was pretty solid, 3 to 3 1/2 consistently across the pond. i drilled holes all the way out as we ventured out.

    where we were we didnt mark any fish right away. but they came through regularly in packs of maybe 2-5 fish. when they came through, they were looking to eat! this is the result of a gill pack that came through.....both rods out of the water with fish on. :D

    way to go. I'm not sure about going much yet. It's raining here right now.

    last shot, a gill with one of my favorite gill jigs in its mouth. tipped with a waxie, they wouldnt take maggots today. this one tangled in my other line.

    all in all, a great day of ice fishing.

    Way to go HWF! My mouth started watering looking at those fat gills. I haven't found any where that has that much ice yet. I have several of "those" ponds myself but I don't want to drive 45 minutes until I know they're good to go! I figured you must have been out somewhere when I didn't see any new posts from you most of the day yesterday. Thanks for giving all of us something to keep us going.
