    Fished from around 10-6. Caught a ton of dinks, probably close to 30 or so, only 2 were "keeper" size. Also got a couple Bass, largest was around 2lb. Saw fishinful sporting a T-shirt in his shanty, nice day to be on the ice! I actually got a little sun on my face today!

    I think I saw Big Daddy reeling in a nice looking Bass as I was leaving?? Johnboy thought that was you fishing across from us but wasn't sure until I saw the Big Daddy truck in the lot as I was leaving. If it was you I gave you a thumbs up!

    Old State Park is a good place to start..... You'll see where to go when you pull in the lot, it's not a long walk! You might not catch alot of big fish, but you'll usually catch plenty of small gills.
     
  10. Yep. That was me.

    Caught a bunch of dink gills, 5 nice keepers over 7 inches, one perch, and three more small bass. It was a fun day out there for sure. Saw fishinful and johnboy in the parking lot. Prez and Buns caught a load of dinks too with a couple nice gills and one crappie. Prez lost a good sized bass at the hole too. Saw Gilligan and his brother fishing a club event. Ron, who won?

    Depending on the rain, I may be out there tomorrow with Nick.
     
  11. went out to miller. did ok alot of dinks and a few keepers. Then got the bright idea to drive all the way to Mosquito (only took an hour) fished from 4 to 8 and caught nothing. Did see a guy get a nice walleye over by the bouy line, over heared him say he got it on a jigging rapella. Ice at miller was 3ish crappy ice and at squito it was around 6 to 7 with the top 1 1/2 white crap.

    All in all it was a fun day. Got to use my Vex again. But even more fun was playing with my Aqua Vu. That was cool to see the fish look , shake and sometimes take your bait. Awsome.

    Good to see you out there Carl, Prez too. Fished tournament for Summit Sportsman Association. Top prize went to Bob Doyle with ten fish weighing in at a little over 2 lbs. Bernie & Don took second & third fishing Miller Lake. I finished fourth & my brother Bob fifth. Had 11 people fish, I think everyone caught fish. I had 10 fish, but a lot of dinks. Thanks for the tip with the wax worms. We did real well after getting the tip, but ran out of waxies. After that we only got 1 or 2 more fish. They were nibbling on the maggots, but would take the wax worm all the way. Fun day, & great weather out there.
