We went out to a small local back lake for my first ice fishing outing of the year. Ice conditions were great with about 5 inches of good ice. Our group moved around a couple of times to locate some action on the sonar/flasher. We  had a great time once I located some of the targeted species (crappie). They were quite finicky.  I had to resort to cold wet hands and use live minnows. which we usually bring when we go out for crappie. When they are finicky, this is usually the remedy.

Using a small live minnow on a Freedom Tackle jig head will always get a few to pull the end of my line. We decided  to keep about 10 good sized ones for a fish fry.

Not only do I love to hunt crappie down, I also love to have a good feed of them at the end of my day!
