Ice fishing 2022

Looking forward to a long cold Winter!

Started this thread for us to share our reports, pics, and stories. 

I really enjoy ice fishing.  Landed my personal best, of many species, while sharing the day on hardwater with friends and family. 
Grilling, drinking, and laughing the time away waiting for a “flaaaaag!!”

Run…. Fall…. Slide. :D
Good times!

Also looking forward to this year, i had a good time last year. This will be be my second season at this, lots to learn. Last year was good, but started late getting set up. Spent my life in construction, many winters outside and never had the desire to go sit out on the ice when off. Retired now so i'm ok with getting out and trying my luck at it. Last year i think i sat to long in one spot, this year i'm gonna try to move around more. 

Also i'm gonna try live minnows, last year was just jigging tins and the like. I guess i'll dead stick the minnows and sit and jig another rod. I haven't tried tip ups yet, not sure if i'll go that way yet. I want to keep it simple, a couple rods, a couple holes.... life is good...

Thanks for starting this!

I'm in deer mode now but will get the basket out of the corner and change leaders after that. I'm hoping my auger charger is in the basket and I didn't put it somewhere safe so I wouldn't lose it and forgot lol.

Going trolling for trout on my favorite Central MA lake in the morning….

Hope there is skim ice on top :D

I’ve had epic days in those conditions!

I can’t wait. Where I am a lot of the small ponds and bays have the thinnest bit of ice and it’s just enough to get me excited. Time to sharpen the auger
