With the ice holding up well a few of us decided to take a "Mental Health Day" on Friday and head to the high country to fish some hardwater.

After a two hour drive we were on the lake at 7:00 am with hopes the morning bite would produce. We got our holes drilled and whacked a few chunky Bows right away. Things slowed down after the first few fish and by 8:00 I was drilling more holes in search of fish.

We spent the rest of the day chasing trout in anywhere from 14-56 FOW, with the trout suspending mainly at the 12' mark in 24-26 FOW. The deeper we went the higher the trout in the water column, with the fish right under the ice in 56 FOW.

Once again having good electronics was key and FL-20 allowed me to pinpoint where the fish were in the water column. We ended up catching 20 trout between four guys in five hours of fishing, letting 12 of those go to swim another day. Jigging was key as the set lines only produces four fish.

I was able to get enough footage for a short video, hope you guys enjoy as the backdrop is just as awesome as the fishing.

Thanks guys, can't really beat fishing in 40-50 degree weather. Best part is I get home and the shorts and the flipflops go on. I sure am missing MN late ice though.
