Febuary 10,2013 I should be Ice fishing but I have a cold and just do not feel like it.  It has been a good year so far the ice has been kind of touch and go with the weather patterns we have had.   On the good side there has been a lot of sub 0 stuff to keep the ice safe.
This was the first Perch of the year to small to keep but it counted as the first one.    Caught on a Northland Forage minnow
This is one of the greatest things it keeps me fishing even in the coldest weather it is a bit bothered by the wind.    Also keeps the market guys from seeing what I am catching
Folds up quickly and carries all my gear
We did make a trip to Maine Smelt fishing it was great catching 18 smelt a bit high priced by the pound but worth every cent of it
 Loved this place
This is what they look like very easy to clean to eat
These are what we used to catch them
