    I just got back from the Muskingum River. Went casting for some Saugeye at a couple locations, I was amazed how the melted snow the last couple days made for a hard freeze last night. No snow on the stip ponds etc. Just good looking ice finally. My neighbor has a couple small ponds walking distance from my house! Yes, I stock them for bait also:roll_eyes:. LOL.. I walked over and drilled a hole. 6 inches of good ice!!! Its only gonna get better too with the upcoming cold spell coming. I think im gonna grab a couple of reels, auger, and the wax worms and hit it for a couple hours this evening for some small gills and crappies!!!! I am pumped! Wife is gone for the day, and me and the neighbor are gonna have a couple cold beers while we fish also. (wink).. It's nice to just get out of the house every now and then!:big_smile: rollo

    Caught a bunch of gills at the neighbor's pond earlier. I am gonna slide out tomorrow as well. Look to catch some eating sized fish for the freezer tomorrow at a strip pit that I have done well at, and ice-fished before. It has some nice fish in it. Hopefully they will bite. My run some tip-ups as well....... rollo
