    Thanks for the pics. Busted ice with the boat many a morning. Hate it when floaters push you off your spot.

    I have never fished the dead of the winter before, but this post ties in with several other things I have read lately on this subject, and am gonna give it a go this winter.

    Thanks for the post!!

    so any way big muddy what is up brother,we miss ya,dude where r u?good to hear from ya.yea i will be fishing hard this winter,as a matter of fact i will be trying more cold lakes just to see what happends,i like the winter fishing because most of the time u have lake to yourself,no noise,not that noise matters.but its peaceful,plus i like useing liver in the winter in cold lakes,helps keep it on your hook as well.now in power plants and summer i use big baits,just wondering if some of yall use big baits in cold water lakes and catch fish?any info u have will make me a better cat man this winter thank you.
