3.5 hours last night on a course pond. Marked an ok amount but they were crazy finicky. As in they would take 60 seconds to swim up to the bait and then 1 second to drop away when you mis-jig. Missed one nibble, buddy missed two.
Only fish of the night. Dead sticking with very slight jigging ~5-10 seconds convinced him to bite.
Ice was less then ideal, mostly under 2". Was honestly 70% sure one of us was going to take a swim but I managed to work my way out pretty far without issue. Going back out tonight.
I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news. - JM
