SO THERE I WAS.... it was about 15 degrees and windy as all get out. there was a pond i have been meaning to try for about 5 years now. we finally made it out there saterday and again on sunday. i figured there would be about 5 inches of ice like all the other lakes in the area but this one had 12. luckly i brought the gas auger we started fishing and only caught 2 in about an hour. so we moved and just started to slay some rainbows. all together we caught close to 70 or so between the 2 of us. nothing impressive but most were 10-16 inches so it was fun.
