I headed up to an Aitkin county lake on Saturday morning with a small group of friends. It is a small lake so I am going to protect the name. We started out with beautiful 22-degree weather and then the wind picked up! My son and I were using the new Otter Ice Camo Ice house. I have finally found an icehouse I really like! Check out the video of the wind! We were really laying the smack down to the crappies and sunnies using spring bobbers and hair jigs. We also had waxies and crappie minnows but the hair jigs were the ticket. As soon as the front made its full entrance our fishing was done for the day. We ended up with a respectful pail of fish and through a good amount back for seed.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
