Only made it out two times for northerns, been way to cold. My wife and kids enjoy it, I do more drilling and rebaiting than I do catching, but that's the way it should be i guess.

So Went out with the wife yesterday. As you guys may know, I have fished with the FIL for quite a few years, but would be lost if I had to find fish under the ice without someones help. :oops:

So Sunday we decided to try our luck without him, as he had projects to get to. He says to head out around 12, as he has been experiencing an evening bite. We get out there and had the bait in the water when we start pulling up tiny little pearch. 4 - 5 inches.

We are there until around 2:00 pulling these bait thieves up, when this super nice guy pulls in and starts asking questions and tells us about his past experiences on this lake. He drills about 10 holes (we had 6) and drops the Vexilar into his first hole, when whammo, pulls up his first of many 10 - 12 inch crappie. We still aren't catching squat, and my wife starts looking depressed. He says, "You have any blue jigs? That's what they seem to like around here."

I go to the jigs I brought out and, of course, no blue. He then says "Why don't you guys use some of my holes."

We did. But still nothing, until my rod bends, and its on...

Pulled up a nice largemouth. Not what we were looking for, but a blast to pull out of the ice non-the-less.

All that said. This guy is putting on a clinic. He gets into a rod-bender and loses it at the hole. Drops the line in again, and bam, pulls out a 14"er.

My wife is looking like she is ready to leave, and this gentleman says, "How about you watch my line, I have to make a call."

Bang! she pulls out a nice 10"er, drops the line in and pulls up another similar sized crappie.

Dude walks back and says "See... sometimes it is the right equipment... sometimes it's luck, and sometimes it's a little of both."

I say all this because it is rare that a guy teaches in a way to not make people feel stupid. He was a great guy, and I hope to see him on the ice again soon.

My wife wouldn't take any pics with the fish she caught because she "didn't feel she had to work for them, and they're his fish."


Good luck with the rest of your seasons, and if you see a fellow fisherman struggling, give a little time to talk to and give some advice on how you are successful on the ice or in a boat.

Thanks for reading.

:lol3:

You don't know my wife.

She's as competitive as her old man.

His hole, his gear, his knowledge... his fish.

He tried to make us take the fish, but she would have none of it. She thanked him immensely for the amount of time he sat there with us newbies. But no way was she going to except those as her fish.

Went out in in he hutch area looking for crappies. Found some small ones along with small gills...didn't plan on keeping so nbd.

Excitement for the night was this almost 21inch smb on a TINY jig. Talk about burning drag.

Getting that football through a 6 inch hole was quite the ordeal.
