Fished Nimmy 4:30-7:30 Saturday 1/20., Jigging & Tip Ups with Minnows/Minnowheads. 2 Perch, 1 Crappie & 2 Stogies. Had an first time experience with one of my tip ups. Line was peeled completely off the spool and 6lb braid was broken. (I didnt check the Tip Ups after dark until I was ready to call it a day).  Think it could've been a huge Catfish, Walleye, Carp or Northern.  Oh well, live & learn even at my old age.  Had a great time anyway.

BTW: The newly constructed SMITTY worked wonderfully.  No drag whatsoever while pulling the shanty & gear.

Yeah Gary, Billfish sent me plans, but didn't use them as template, but only a guide.  You Tube has videos too.

There is a guy on Ice Shanty that is named Smitty who sells premade kits, has a patent and everything.
