It's been a trying season this winter. Slow to make us here in the Southwestern hills. I've iced a couple brookies one nice salmon that went about 18" and then some small bass, pickerel and yellow perch. Hoping if the ice stays for a few more weeks around here to get into some March bass fishing, that was always fun and they run like crazy when they grab a shiner as the water temps warm. Next weeks temps won't help though a lot of the places I fish have only managed about 12" of good ice the rest of it is pretty soft weak ice or a hard crust.
