    I got out on a local lake this afternoon for about 3 hours of ice fishing. Ice was about 10" thick. It was about 16* with a bit of wind blowing but I done pretty well catching 8 Largemouth Bass and 23 Bluegills. My camera battery died after about the 5th photo which is a real shame cause a couple of the biggest fish were caught after the battery died!:sad2: I attached the pics I did take. You Southern folk will get cold just viewing these photos!:lol:

    What were you using for bait? I have never ice fished, but we've had a real cold spell and I read in the local paper outdoors section about several of the smaller ponds around here are iced up enough to fish with 4-8 inch thick ice.

    Hey Scott, im glad you got some ice fishing in thanks for the pics. I went by lake George yesterday on the way to work and there were two pickups with plows out on the lake plowing out areas for guys to fish. The Storm we had this past week left 30 inches of snow on the ice. Im working again today but im hoping to get out there a couple of times next week. Ill let ya know how i do.

    Nice fish, i love ice fishing but don't get to do it very often in southern indiana. we have had some REAL cold weather though (we had a 3 day span where it didn't get above 15) and we have more than plenty of ice, 10-12 inches. So we went out saturday afternoon. Caught 65 bluegills, kept probably 30. 15 crappie (all real nice, 10+) and two small channels. man that channel was fun on an ice fishing reel and 2 pound test! good job and keep getting out!
