so we went to an old favorite. i dont know why i dont fish this place alot. some one knock some sense into me!

so  we went to a spot deep out in the woods. my first time ice fishing it. well attempting to ice fish it. we bushed whacked our way through thick woods. thank God for machetes. now ive been out here before. AND KLILLED IT!!!  the first and last time i fished it. we fished for an hour and caught 15 bass a piece. if i missed the fish. it would come back and bite it 2 or 3 times.  id have 5 and 6 hits on one cast! so yea this pond is good.

so we finally reached the pond. it look sketchy but we decided to test it any ways. so my buddy had his machete in hand to cut some holes.  i was standing on the marshy swampy shoreline with the 150 foot rope and the sled full of gear. 

ice breaks and i fall through. fell to up to my knees.  we continue to walk along the marshy shoreline break the ice(not on purpose) we wanted to check the thickness on a different part of the shore. little safer but it was 2-2.5 inches!

we trek back to the truck hit an old favorite. first time on the ice here this season 3rd time ever. check the ice! 4 inches!!!! SWEET!!!!!! get to the spot spread out the traps, didnt have 2 set up before my flag poped! missed the fish. so i re set. go back to the 2 nd trap i need to set. BAM flag up!. couldnt set up my 5 traps. had 6 flags and 2 bass.

chasing flags all day. one flag would pop on one side. and the other one would pop on the opposite side. we would have to decide which one to take. hopefully its the right one. drag peeling, 5 lber.  multiple flags popping at the same time.   at one time i had 2 flags up. my buddy ask can i grab one. i said sure. i missed my fish and he lands a 5lbser that moron!!!! 

we missed at least 40 fish. we would set the hook right away. missed fish. put pressure on it. but not set hook. missed fish. let it run. missed fished.  we missed a lot of fish. now it may be the size of the hooks and we were using large shiners as well.  ??? ??? ??? ??? ???

I MISSED 2 MONSTERS!!!!!!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:( they ran me into logs and broke off!
my buddy had 3 5s and 2 4s.  that son of a complain! thats the last time i let him get my flag! my biggest was 3.5

we caught over 40 bass and 2 perch.
