The one that didn't get away! Bart, my Dad and Uncle Rick got this on the Cedar River backwater in Iowa - ice-fishing - the other day. It's a Northern Pike, 39 inches long and approx. 16 lbs.
I haven't been out fishing for over a month! Sad. I was going to take Caleb with me since it was so nice out. These pictures are a little later in the day. I started out fishing in my t-shirt! A beautiful day. The ice was solid 18+ inches of ice. Brad and I caught dinks all day- bass, perch and blue-gill. Brad got a decent size perch. No muskie- I was trying for them. I was even prepared with a heavier line and leader. I plan on getting out more often and hopefully Caleb can join me as well. I might try to get up to Bear Lake in the next couple of weeks. I bought an Idaho fishing license as well- so I'm ready to venture out ice fishing and fly fishing Idaho.
