We fished the same pond I had ice-fished back in November and December. Really need to try a different body of water NEXT time. :)
We marked fish in the main basin. They seemed eager to bite at first, but soon turned to "lookers". They would follow, but not strike. So, it was fun to watch the fish on the electronics, but we weren't catching much. My first fish of the year was a Largemouth Bass.
We drilled holes and checked all over the main basin for active fish, but the story was similar everywhere. We finally moved towards the west end of this pond, and found a lot more fish, and many were very willing to strike.
I ended the day with at least 15 Bluegills (up to 8"), 1 Black Crappie (11"), 1 White Crappie (8"), and at least 8 Largemouth Bass (up to 13"). All were caught on a 1/16th oz Lindy Frostee Jigging Spoon tipped with a waxworm.
