    What lake did you go to if you wouldnt mind sharing.
    BTW Looks like fun and nice pics!
  4. Merikal Farley trout club in Swanton. Its 5-6 acres, 22 feet deep and stocked mostly with trout but we have caught some nice bass, gills, crappie, and the occaisional catfish. It is a private club but a great place to take the kids. Probably the best $100 I spend every year.
  5. Dang randy, how did it feel to fish on ice thicker than 3 inches?? lol Had jaimy set up past where we had to stop yesterday. Made about 2 inches last night.
  6. There was an easy 8" where we fished today. After the last few days it was nice to "relax" and just fish, no worries of swimming. I had a good time yesterday, I'll be back out mid-week.

  15. Thanks for all the kind words. My older daughter is at my parents tonight and I just called her to tell her to check out this thread, she thinks its pretty cool. He older brother is probably spitting nails that he had a friend over and did not go. I went to the same spot tonight and only managed 1 bullhead, 1 gill, and one trout, but my excuse is I forgot the Vex.
  16. I hate to bring this back to the top but I had to. This is the note my 10 year old gave me tonight after being home form school today.

    Thank you Dad for taking me and Elizabeth ice fishing.

    I had a good time fishing and playing with Elizabeth.

    I thought it was really funny when Elizabeth peed on you!! It was hilarios!! I thought you would be mad but when you laughed I knew it was o.k. for me to laugh! I also loved our lunch/dinner. It was great, I thought it tasted like really good steak. So thanks for that stuff. I am also thanking you for everything else you did for me.

    Being a Dad is great!!!
