The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Day after Christmas- Ice Fishing

Manuta Reservoir
5 Rainbow Trout and 2 Bluegill- Not bad for a few hours.
All caught on a pink and white "Toadie" with black spots.

My friend Brad and I got to go ice fishing up at Mantua Reservior for a few hours today. Surprisingly, all of them came out of the same hole- it was a nice little hot spot. We actually caught a 6th Rainbow trout but it was a little smaller than the rest, so we let it go. It was a beautiful day and the ice was 13.5 inches thick- plenty safe. I got to try out my new ice fishing sled- it worked great! I think playing chill radio on Pandora (Internet Radio) through my phone lured the fish in. Brad didn't have to much luck, but he brought me some! Hopefully, he will want to go again. I'm sure he will have better luck next time.

Yea, I guess i am lucky. However, we must grace the waters of Mantua again so I can redeem myself with many landed 20in. Rainbows.
