Hit a different small city reservoir today. The choice paid off with some giant fish! Walking on about 8" of ice still and honestly looked a little better here with no white ice on top at all. Fish were very active today..... maybe with the weather coming?

Anyway, only managed 5 keepers today but 2 of them were Fish Ohio size crappie! First fish went 14" and the next went 15". The bluegills were just around 7.5". Lost 2 other giant crappie at the hole too and had lots of followers on the flasher that would not hit. Did land a big 18" bass as well. Very aggressive fish today..... watching on the flasher, some were flying up 10' off bottom to hit. Probably threw back another 20 dink gills.

All the keeper fish were caught on a 1/32 shiny tin head with a very spase tied white bucktail and silver wing-n-flash tail with a red thread trail also. Tipped it with a waxworm when the bluegills were around. Caught 1 of the crappies and the bass without any meat tip. Fun day!

Great jig.
Really good fish there and sounds like an exciting Saturday trip. Nice to not to worry about getting off work early enough.

Thanks for looking guys. Was a hell of a day. Fished from about 10:00 till 2:00 and handled a lot of fish. These were both personal best for through the ice crappie...... first one popped my eyes out and then the 2nd bigger came right after it. Cool

FAT Tire Ale! I saw that at the market today when I was on a beer run. I am going to give it a try since you have some. A fish dinner and Ale sounds great to me. Nice looking fish on the ice but since I am is southern California I am glad it's you not me. I hate being out in the cold!
