That doesn't sound like a slow day to me. I tried ice fishing for the first time this year and got the skunk everytime. I would have been happy with one perch, I would be REALLY happy if I caught a northern!will said:Fished from 9-4 over 8 FOW. Caught 6 keeper perch on medium fatheads and 1 24" northern on a shinner tip up rig. Pretty slow day, I need to get out more!!!
