Pondboy's birthday is this week. He has a tradition of going ice fishing for his birthday. I've taken days off and fished with him in past years. This year things moved forward a day to Sunday for the birthday outing.
The temperature was around 20 degrees and around 4" of snow had fallen/was falling as we drove to the first spot. The streets were all either un-plowed or partially plowed and driving was challenging but we are an intrepid bunch! We fished the first pond long enough to all score some small bluegills. I was fishing with Ted aka SoonerBass. Here he is with the largest of the gills we found at the first pond.
Not at all huge but boy was it a treat to have something on the other end of my line that could pull some drag out of my little ultra-light reels.
