Default Ice fishng 2012

Well.. there's still ice an hour and half north of me.. but I'm done for the season..

We had a good year...no monsters.. mostly salmonids..

I caught tagged rainbows in the big lake(Winnipisauke)..unfortunalty two weeks prior to the derby or it would have been worth some cash...

the last two pictures are from an Ice fishing seminar I gave for the Plum Island surfcasters in january...

No way zim, we been smilin here in north country since Christmas day. It's been off and on as far as fish go, but def. starting to pick up as some of this ice melts away and the water temps continue to rise. Actually going on a lil' night/day excursion tomorrow night on Pleasant Lake in Casco w/ my buddy Striper John, I'll report back later in the week. We're gonna fish all night for cusk then switch it over just before daybreak for salmon/trout/large mouth. We've been pullin some slobs outta there lately, so here's hopin. . . . . .

Turned out to be a succesful venture on Pleasant Lake Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. We fished from around 8 p.m. 'til 11 a.m. and the flags were flying fast and furious. What a trip seeing those finger lites waving at ya in the dark of the night. First time fishing for cusk, we caught 13 or so and lost a handful more.....kept us running from sun down to sun up. Switched it over to smelts in the a.m. and the flags just kept on flying one after another after another. We each lost a salmon or two and landed a nice large mouth. It was a pretty good way to wrap up the season. The ice was safe but questionable in spots as we had anywhere from 4-6" of ice depending where on the pond we were. Open water in the middle and starting to soften up around the edges, but didn't really effect us where we were!!!
