Incredible bass through the ice. Weight? Tip up w/ minnow?

not sure on weight but felt every bit of 5.5 - 6 lb. medium roach did the trick. had to kick my hole back open before it started taking line on the tip up.

The elusive gigantus frozenfishasuarus or arctic bass and a damn fine specimen at that. Yep, might as well hang the rods up for the year, you blew your wad on the first outing and it ain't getting better from here ;)

And here I was thinking hardwater fishing is all about catching dinks you would shit on during the summer. :D
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
