Fished the old res. of my hometown today with my son. Beautiful day with some sun and temps in the upper 30's.

Slow day, did not mark a ton of fish. After a few hours (and only a few bites to show for it) he decided he had enough. He asked if mom could come and pick him up. We had fun, but he missed out on the big fish of the day. A 26" channel cat!

Took about 15 minutes before i could wear it out and turn its head up through the hole. My gas auger cuts 8" holes.... but when i saw its head i was nervous it wasn't going to turn and make it up! Biggest fish through the ice for me. Cool

Ended the day with only 5 keeper gills. Cleaned them and right into the oven for an appetizer before dinner.

Candy even got some of the scraps before i took them out to throw in the garden.

RE: 3-1-14 Attica Res #1
That is Awesome!! It tickles me to no end to see Ice fisherman like yourself pull big ol fish like that through that lil hole in the Ice. I'm sure i would Love Ice fishing if i .....well........If I Didn't have to actually be on the Ice. I have this fear of my big ***** taking a polar plunge. How thick of Ice do you consider "Safe" Ice?
