I decided that since it was such a nice day i would go out on the ice and try to catch some crappies. I got to the lake around 2:30 and within minutes i caught my first fish, a nice crappie. the fish bit steady for the next couple hours and i couldnt get a good hookset on most of the fish. I ended up catching about 20 crappies, some nice bluegills, and a few walleyes.
My first crappie of the day.

Get out on the ice up north. It won't last forever!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
