|9.75" T.H.E. Jig w/waxie|
Conditions: Cloudy, Light wind out of the NNW, 7" of ice
I decided to head out of the Platte Lake Access where I knew the ice was safe. I decided to head out to the 14 ft hole as marked on my Lakemaster Chip. I was out farther than a couple of guys who were fishing tip ups. I drilled two sets of two holes. I put a minnow down one hole and I jigged the other with a tungsten jig with a wax worm. I had my Vexilar turned all the way up to 10, thinking it was on 1. Not a whole lot was going on. Finally a fish came in and bit, but I didn't have my drag set for the 2lb test I put on the reel and it stole the tungsten jig when it took a run. My bad. I decided I was going to have to switch a couple of reels a round when I got home. I decided not to tie anything on the rod with the broke line and switched to the rod with a black and white glow T.H.E. Jig on it. Finally I figured out I had the Vex set to high. I thought I wasn't gonna catch anything so I took a couple of pictures.
