Ran 2 cameras. Started at 6am and off at 3pm. Not for one minute was there not fish on camera. Bunch of 12" a pile of 9-11" and plenty of 8" filled the bucket. Was a great trip for sure ! Plenty of ice as well, 10-12" of the good stuff. IMG_20200228_094723_901.thumb.jpeg.f0834acec0bf50ae7433e0f2d589aae5.jpeg

Also had some great times close to home, with my favorite fishing buddy. He pulled his first crappie through the ice !IMG_20200223_193205_801.jpeg384980.jpeg0223201624a_HDR.jpeg

I saw that bubba too.  How many perch can you get threw at a time.  I have been using an American angler but recently the “ new” blade replacements are worse than the original. Thinking about cordless.

Well, I did 80 and still had 1 bar of battery. Haven't charged it since the fall. The great thing about the bubba kit is it comes with 4 blades and 2 batteries. I had the rapala but had a battery go bad, which they replaced but I figured I try the bubba while I waited. It feels big in the hand compared to the rapala but I have zero complaints. I've put it through countless walleyes, king's, steel and perch.

Must have been a good size hole

They report a 27" girth on the fish.  With a 10" blade the hole is 10" x 3.14 (pi)= 31.4" circumference, so I imagine there were some anxious moments at landing!  It also means I could probably get away with a 6" blade when I go ice fishing for Lake Trout around here. :lol:

Coming back in on Honeoye at launch yesterday  it was apparent that someone went through right near the concrete abutment of the dock at the ramp  ....looked like one leg. Must have been a real sweet drive home.

The shore ice is getting soft fast on Oneida in spots. Better get after them soon...

11” of ice where I am today, half white and half black. Top 1”-2” is toast. Lots of standing water.

It should firm up for the weekend at least.

Some tank perch today.
