A buddy and I got together and fished Friday and Saturday evening. He was first to the ice Friday early afternoon and blazed a fresh trail through the snow out to a point where he set up in 13 FOW on the weed edge and had his hands full with nice gills, bass and pike before moving at sunset. I arrive around 5:00 and set up in 15 FOW on the drop and started seeing fish around 6:15. They were initially very aggressive but once it got completely dark they became very finicky and I ended up switching from tipping with a minnow head to euro larvae and managed a few extras. I left the lake at 9:30 with 7 for supper.

Saturday we fished another small body of water and got started around 4:30. I set my deadstick up, was opening a new small jigging rap when I heard the slide and drop from my deadstick getting pulled off the bucket and by some miracle the reel handle caught the snow on the edge of the hole and I was able to retrieve the rod before losing it. The fish was still on but managed to get off. I'll take the $125 rod over the fish any day of the week so I considered myself lucky on that one. We fished until 9:00 with another slower bite but the fish we managed were of better quality in the 11"-12" range. The bite wasn't fast and it wasn't for lack of fish but we both managed a couple meals which is all a guy can ask for.
