Took a trip into the mountains today since it was 60*! Did about 3 hours of hiking/rock climbing and while we were rock climbing we have 4 people out on the lake ice fishing. I brought poles with us but our favorite spot was iced over. LUCKILY those 4 people were in our spot and left us some nice holes to use  lol! 

The wind picked up later in the evening and got COLD, so we didn't stay for but maybe 30 minutes. I did catch a 13" splake with a red troutmaster? lure. Just bobbed it up and down slowly and shocked me that I actually caught something.

My nephew took a bad pic but the true beauty of the pic is obviously visible  Embarassed

Only way I can get some ice fishing done here is if I catch them inside a freezer  Laughing

Nice catch by the way  Wink  !

WOW...I'd be out ice fishing too if it were 60*  Exclamation 

The "feels-like" temperature right now in MA is -1*, so I'm gonna wait for that unseasonally warm, 32*+   sunny weather day before I break out my ice auger.  Smile

FG...I wish I could dress like you do I go ice fishing.  I just got back my self from Lake of the Woods in Northern Minnesota.  Ice was over 24" thick this trip.  It was 19" two weeks ago.  My largest fish was a 24" walleye.

52* today. Tomorrow it shows in the 30s and possibly some snow.

It was nice actually, but on 6" of ice and hearing it sing while you walk on it is a bit scary lol.

LOL!  It "sings" a lot at 24" also when you driving a pick-up pulling a fish house on it!

I went on a Lake Trout fishing trip on Snowmobiles in Red Lake, Ontario one year and the ice was 46" thick.  That was fun.  No worries about falling through there.   Shocked

Walleye has got to be one of the best eating fresh water fish out there.

My brother sent me a photo one year of some people trying to pull a truck out of the slush on a semi-frozen bay of Lake Superior near Bayfield, Wisc. They had to cut it loose or both rigs would have gone in.

52" northern is a trophy.  They don't come much bigger than that!
