Ice fishing report over the holidays

Took a little break from the boat the last two weeks to take a dab at some ice fishing 

fished pools 3,4,8 and 9.   In some places the bite was great and others you really had to work for your fish   Most of the time I used no bait to catch my crappies but when fishing for the blue hills we used waxie to get them to strike   We fished in water d Otis as shallow as 3 ft to other areas thawrnt to 13 ft.  The flasher was a must when we were in the deeper water 

Robert and Dillon it was an absolute blast going out with you and your friends ice fishing I have pictures of some of our catch from the last week with a couple kids that we fished with first was Gavin with a nice sauger he had pulled up  and also Carson with his first fish of the day.   Very good mannered kids we had on the ice with us. Wade keep that boy fishing he seemed to really have fun. 

This week gonna try and get back into the boat and target walleyes again hopefully the extreme cold weather stays away.  

Good luck out there guys and gals!!!!!!!
