finally ice out on the local lakes! I got out today after school around 3:35 and fissh till 6:00. used small green and smoke twisters on a small jig wwith 4 pound line and an ultraliterod and reel. MAN are bass fun on light tackle. i caught about ten bass (all over 2 pounds) the biggest at 4 lbs. about 25 crappie (biggest being 13 inches) and about 15 bluegill (all small). I also hooked a VERY VERY large fish that shredded my 4lb test, i reeled in the broken line only to find the end was surrated and shredded! Maybe Mr. pike came to play...on the WRONG day :roll: :lol: . if it was a northern, it was over 8lb because it was VERY heavy, my pole was doubled over from the fish. It was also fighting and taking out line like no ones buissness.

I fished in a warm cove area that was all slack water because the wind was cuttoff and the water was about 53 degreese.there was a warm water fast moving inlet there so i think thats why it was warm. There was alot of weeds in this area, allong with bullrush and logs. There are alot of minnows out all ready so guys, start using mr rapala :lol:

Sounds like some steady action! I wish you had a camera. I love looking at pictures of fish, and you catch a lot of em!

You should get a camera phone, or a digital camera. I got a cheap one from walmart just so I could look at pics of fish we catch :D You can get one that takes good pics for like $60.

Looks to be a good spot to get some numbers. Unfortunately, like alot of spots noted on this site, it's a bit further then I'm willing to scope for pond action. Damn that 9-5 job.

Wow, that sounds like one sweet pond!

phone onto the internet
You can usually just enter your email address in as a phone number, then select the picture and choose send in message. Then select your email adress out of your phonebook. Most phones seem to be something like this. :wink:
