    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    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

    other times its like fish in a barrel

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