    I do. Caught a PB 10.75" Bluegill this winter. Mount should be back in a couple of months. Those are some very nice trout. Where did you catch those?

    Before this year I've never been ice fishing. My dad and I got out quite a bit. I love it! Nothing like catching 62 perch in one morning!! :tu: But I'm with Ferg, I'm ready for some open water!

    Only ice fished once this year! About 3 hours worth. Spent easily 40+ hours plowing the ice-road, and getting the ihouse on/off the lake.

    ... something's wrong here.

    These are two of the 15 I caught last time out. Favorite fish to eat and catch!

    I agree! I caught a jumbo the other day but it was pregnant so I threw it back. We like to check for eggs on the fatter ones.

    These ones were first week of February so they were just naturally fat. This was 5 hours from I live and my grandpa who fishes 3+ times a week has been throwing females back

    Awesome, those are some big perch! The bigger they are the easier they are to fillet :tu:

    That is what it's all about!
    I kind of agree with Fitz and hold little interest in ice fishing but summer is on its way.

    Trout are a blast to catch thru the ice! My grandpa just bought a 7x11 wheelhouse with two bunks yesterday!

    Anyone in PA know a young person wanting to get into ice fishing. Here's a guy that wants to help by giving his gear away.
    Free Stuff Sounds to good to be true but someone could get ready for hard water early.
