Stopped at horeshoe today to see what the ice looked like. Walked about 30 yrds off the second lot towards a houseboat. Drilled a few holes, ice ranged from 3-6 inches. Fished for 10 min, just as I was about to leave I feel a deadweight on my line, set the hook and off it went. Big male steelhead gave me a fight of a lifetime on the ice rod, fought it for around 20 min, estimated him around 28inches. Awesome way to start the hardwater season.
The Lord has blessed us all today... It's just that he has been particularly good to me.
