The system here is known for them but they're still pretty fun to find in person as I'm so used to little ones most of the time during the summer.


Big Gills through the ice fight like no tomorrow, not much I’d rather do from December-March. That, and your beer never gets warm!
I like Crappie, but sometimes you’ll haul in a 12 that doesn’t even fight until it gets to the hole. A 9 inch gill will outpull a 12 inch Crappie more often than not! And don’t get me started with Pike on an ultralight!

Yeah ice and/or pan fishing for me is food gathering. None of the fights do much for me although I’ve never hooked a pike thru the ice.

Have lots of gills and now want to get some crappies for the freezer.

Back to the streams In 8 days!!

Looking forward to fights on the streams and dinner through the ice.

Yeesh... the bite was slow today. Only brought home two gills.

Ice where I went was great at 4 inches.

Heard that the bite picked way up in the afternoon but by that time I was napping on the couch.

Gonna try to get out at dawn tomorrow and then maybe again late afternoon.

Temps gonna warm up this week so thinking tomorrow is my last chance for a bit.
