Fished a northeast Ohio lake yesterday had to battle the wind all day! A few times I wondered if my anchors were gonna hold. The bite was excellent caught around 70 crappie 5-11Ē and a couple bass. Fishing in 10 fow caught most of the fish from the bottom up to 6ft. I caught half on a gold #6 thinwire hook and minnow and the rest jigging a gold pinmin and maggot. Ice thickness was 7Ē with an inch of frozen slush on top. Visibility 3ft the action was steady most of the day. Kept 12 fish and quit just before dark.

Good catch!  Me too. Have to do rear brakes on a utility truck first thing, then itís off to the ice.

Good luck with the brakes I hope they are disc! But you said utility truck so they probably are drum. 😱 Good luck at the lake today hopefully thereís a decent bite going today! 😊

Brakes went great, but with my back still sore I couldnít lift my shanty in and out of my truck. So the prospect of sitting in the wind on just a Clam chair in 11 degrees with a -5 wind chill just didnít appeal to me. So I chickened out.  Will be going Sunday or Tuesday. Tomorrow and Monday are booked.

IT did. If it wasnít windy Iíd have gone without a shanty in a second.  Aggravated my back still canít lift my big thermal shanty.  I go back to doc Monday and hope to be released to normal activity, then itís game on Tuesday!!!!

Last month I was out at -5 without the wind chill and never opened up the shanty. With the floatation suit, cold isnít too bad. But the wind was just too much with everything else. Mainly the back. And with high wind and no shanty itís tough to see or feel bites. I never use floats, always hold or deadstick my rods. Todayís conditions with a bad back wouldíve been tough because I couldnít kneel down over the hole with a short rod like I normally would in wind with no shanty.

It does.  I can feel a big difference from 30. And not sleeping as well with a 13 month old when Iím nearly 40 isnít helping.  And being a concrete contractor isnít exactly easy on the body. I donít know how guys in their late 40ís or 50ís do babies.....

Iíll be 36 in a couple weeks and Iíve got a 10yo and 2yo. The 2 year old is exhausting like a little savage running around you canít hardly reason with!😂 Heís fun but exhausting!
