    Was on the ice for about 6 hours yesterday. Today my back is so locked up. Miserable

    What the hell? Did you not have ice cleats or somethin? Hope you caught a few at least.

    Here's my saga this week. We were all set for Saturday morning. I had all the gear loaded and the bait in my stream. Had a nice taco dinner and turned in early. Well about 11pm the fucking stomach bug got me and I woke up puking! FUCK! I puked and shit water for 5 hours straight and had to cancel on my buds. Layed around like a dishrag all Saturday. Still weak, I went for it yesterday and we tried again. The conditions were brutally cold but with a heated shanty and a barrel fire, we managed the long haul into a farm pond created by a river cove that cut off and now floods each spring. Nice to see that we were the first to cut ice this year and we got in a dozen type.

    My buddy got this decent Bass right off the bat:

    When a bass that size has a bite mark on it's side, you know there's some big pike in this pond. No such luck though. I got a small pike, my other buddy got a small bass and a perch but nothing big. Felt good to finally get out but man it whipped me pretty good. It was 1 degree with 14mph gusts.

    Froze my ass off yesterday on the ice. Temp was about 2 degrees with 20 mph winds. Brutal.

    Slow bite yesterday as well which didn't help.

    That's nasty. We're supposed to get into the 30s and 40s this weekend so I'm hoping we can get out.
