2/8 - started at sunrise with the old man for another typical father/son ice mission. same plan as always; dad sits in the shanty with the heat blasting and a thermos of coffee while i set and tend to the tip ups, occasionally punching more holes to mark fish. when a flag does raise, a double tap on the windowless shack tells him its time to roll out of there and run in the direction i report.
action was nil until the sun poked out around 930 and flags started to pop. over the course of the next couple hours, we raised over a dozen largemouth including two standouts.
all largemouth came on medium sized roaches hooked up to a treble on 12 lb floro. i like to zig zag the spread throughout shallow and deeper water to see what works. not uncommon to get bit in 4 fow and 16 fow all in the same outing.
2/9 - set out with great hope at sunrise again. 5 hours went by and we had hoisted up 2 largemouth. a random blizzard that ripped through town kept us bunkered down in the shack. this is why i always bring a nice assortment of snacks and refreshments.
