Haven't been out fishing much since my little guy was born, but my mom offered to babysit and my dad had all the gear ready, and it was supposed to be in the 50's, so i had to go! It rained on and off, but the warm temp made it comfortable enough out there. Ice was in good shape, although with no snow left it will erode quickly. Fish were coming out of the weeds, and although not hot and heavy we scratched up enough for a good meal. Had a couple that were pushing 9" which is always fun. I found out the reels work so much better when you use the freespool function as opposed to pulling out against the drag! Guess i was rusty. ..

Thanks for the trip mom and dad, had a blast!
