The first day of ice fishing this season turned out to be a good one. Chris and I were on the ice by 8am. the first hour and a half was a busy one with about 7 flags. We landed a couple nice pike with the biggest being about 22 inches.
Things shut down for a while after the first couple of hours but then heated back up from noon to 2 pm when the sun came out. We landed 3 more fish with all of them being 12-20" in length.
Overall it was one of the best days I've ever had on the pond we were fishing. It was a busy day too and I think the longest that I actually sat down for was about 20 minutes. The rest of the time we were running for flags and changing bait. To top it all off, it was a nice day out. Its official, the ice fishing season is finally here.
