That's really big for most areas as they usually don't top 8 inches in most parts of the country I have caught them.  Very nice!

Think I might have a 10” in the bucket from this morning. It was wild. They were schooled and on the surface hitting a jig and waxworm about 6” down.

A fellow next to me couldn’t raise a bite so I gave him an ice jig and some waxies. He started getting them on the first cast.

Gotta go ice those fish down.

You betcha! I was schooled by a couple of masters. My good friend and fishing mentor “The Old Man” and another old guy named “Stan”.

While I was watching the bobber this morning ( the fish started out hitting super light) I could hear their voices in my head saying “ another guy who doesn’t know a bite when he sees it”  and “ you gonna hook that fish or what?” Stan taught me to fish the docks, Bob taught me to perch and ice fish. Stan is gone now and Bob suffered a serious stroke.

That was 40 or more years ago. They took me under their wings and I tied them flies. ( they liked my Crystal Flash Scuds)

It’s just great how those memories come back while you’re sitting on a bucket on the bank or dock catching springtime gills and sunnies.

Once again I have to apologize for my “opening day” comments. Guess I just wasn’t thinking.

I had to learn that kind of fishing myself - my dad and grandpa only liked to fish for Walleye and trout but they were really good at it.  I like to fish for them too, but I also like to fish for whatever is biting on whatever they are biting on  ;D.  I'm one of the old timers now but I'm schooling some of the other old timers fishing like that - more often than not they say "do you have any more of those dots (ice fishing jigs)"   hahaha

Swimming level is definitely key !!  I can't tell you how often I've been fishing right next to someone using the same bait and same set up but we just hook, for instance, a Gulp minnow slightly differently and I'm out fishing them 5-6 to 1.
