Default Chain fishing report {pics}

Superfluke and I got out last week before the big thaw.
On this particular body of water we were the first people to make tracks in the snow so our hopes were high. The fishing was great but the catching was slow. We caught fish from 10' to 25' of water.


I caught a nice crappie suspended at 6' in 13' of water. It fell for a spike on a small tungsten jig




Right after my fish, Superfluke immediately got bit as well.He dropped his jig down and the line when limp after just a couple of feet {got hit on the drop} and the fight was on !




Ten minutes later his fish turned out to be a huge carp . It might have been too big to fit thru the hole, but it broke off before we could get it's big head vertical.


We ended up catching fish here and there and then Fluke caught this nice walleye that fell into the protected slot, so back down the hole it went.







I'm glad this cold snap will firm up the ice again. Hope to get out again in a week or so.
