Finally got the 15 year old grandson out on the ice for his first ever ice fishing trip. Went to a pond we have access to. Got on the ice at 12:30 stayed till 1:45, kept 19 gills. Had 1- 7 1/2'' fish that the grandson just had to keep, everything else was 8 to 9 1/2 ". Grandson got the Big 1 just before we were ready to leave, and i had asked him if he was ready to go, and he said just 1 More, and he got the Big 1. He said he did have fun, loves to fish in the summer time, but his hands got cold. Just told him he caught to many fish.
