Well. today we got out for Michael's first ice fishing trip. We went with my brother in law out on a local private lake. We spent about 3 - 4 hours fishing with not much luck. My brother in law hooked a huge pike. He got him up to the hole and was about to try to pull him through the ice when the fish spit the hook!! I saw the fish near the whole and it was a hog. Another friend of my brother in law, went with us and caught a small bluegill, I had one good bite, but I was busy talking and missed it. A couple of other random bites between the 4 of us, but that was it. Michael got to experience how to cut holes, and set tip ups and jig through the ice, but nothing to put in the frying pan though. All in all it was a good time outside today. The temp was around 32 degrees this morning with some snow coming down. While we were out on the ice we saw 2 different flights of geese come through, that was cool. We also heard alot of shooting at the near by pheasant preserve, those guys were tearing it up today. There was a beagle howling for about an hour in the nearby woods, he must have been on a bunny track. Check out our podcast this week and we will discuss the fishing as well as some other things we did this week.
