Alright back on the ice again 2 days in a row. Feel like I need to make up for lost time. It was a Cool day about 20 degrees and a very light southern wind. I Caught 21 Blue Gills and 2 Crappie. The morning started off pretty slow fished from about 0700 till 1200 and only caught one small blue gill. At noon I moved to the south central part of the lake and it was like fishing on a different lake. I caught 21 fish in 2 1/2 hours. I was using a Purple and goldish orange jig. It wasnt the weird color jig that threw me off it was what I was doing to catch them. I would go all the way to the bottom Keep it there for about 5 seconds raise it up about three feet for about 10 seconds and then lower it back down to within 6 inches of the bottom and hold it there. At no point was I jigging. It was really weird. Never caught gills like that before. This was all in about 7-8 feet of water on two inches of ice. All in all it turned out to be one of the best days of ice fishing that ive ever had. All summer long I slatter the catfish but on the ice it seems that im a fish out of water “No pun intended”.

Until the next fishing hole
