Nice fish, congrats! I have never tried ice fishing, maybe it's time to give it a go.

even with electronics, jigging panfish through the ice does take a certain amount of finesse, believe it or not

The crappie and the walleye make me extremely hungry! Two of my favorites when it comes to eating the fish we catch.
