I tried calling twin lakes but i got a machine. I drove to mallard but that still has ice, also checked out some other ponds tried one that i wantd to try last year but never got around to. It had half ice so i threw a rattle trap for a half hour cause i forgot my coat so i couldnt stay much longer. didnt know what to expect, didnt even know if there were fish in it but i ended up hoohing a 20 inch 4.2 lb. bass. it was a hawg. nice way to start the year!
