Default Lake Michigan harbor(first time w/pic)

Mops and I went to the big pond yesterday and as you'll see in the one photos not idea conditions. I was the lucky one of the day and landed the only one it was a good one a 31" 13.98 lb. Rainbow jigging a rapala on an ultra light rod (my first ever and largest ever through the ice)and after about a 10min. fight Mops was able to get through the hole here's the a few pics from yesterday.I also wanted to say thanks to Gary and nice to meet you.

About 15" of ice I'd guess,but soft on the one edge.I'm not very experienced so please be careful!!! It was solid where we were.

That had to be a riot on the short stick!
Did it smack it or just swim up and eat it.
