    I know this isnt bank fishing but it is as close as it gets.
    How many die hard ice fishermen/women do we have here, and what do you target when you go?
    Myself, I mostly target bluegill through the ice, this is the time i stock my freezer with my years supply of gills to eat, then I try to move on to walleye..unsuccessfully most of the time!
    guess it's just a good way to beat the winter blues caused by not having open water to launch the boat.

    my wife and I both ice fish,target gills,yellow perch,walleyes, northerns, cats, and mainly crappie. We also like to fill the freezer with eatin fish during the winter,the waters cleaner and the cold helps keep the fish fresh and they always taste better than summer fish!

    I am blessed. My wife actually caught her first chain pickerel through the ice on our honeymoon. I knew at that moment that God had blessed me beyond my wildest imagination. :wink:

    I like perch the best, then crappie. That's about all I'll keep, except trout that I can use for cat bait.
