So after a few short notice invites from Steve (Ice Guy) that I couldn’t make, we finally hooked up today. Met up at 9 mile at 12:45. I never really fished with PA’s but Steve showed me how to work them. All I have to say is I’m absolutely sold on them. Our first spot we thought we were on them. I think we had 8-9 nice fish the first 1/2 hour. Then turned into a dink fest. So we tried out a few spots and same thing dinks and a bunch of Bernie fish (Love Ya Bernie) We decided not to keep the iffers. I caught a few crappie that were bigger than what’s in the pic that I should have kept but thought we were going to fill bucket with perch and Steve said I had to keep em all so my back already started hurting thinking about it lol. Tried a few more spots and picked up a couple more keepers but wasn’t much going on. Had action all day just not the size we wanted. But had a great time talking **** and telling fish and life stories with Steve. We fished till dark but I got a meal to clean so wasn’t all that bad. Weather was actually pretty nice even though we had to break through a bit of ice going out and coming back in. Pretty sweet not dealing with minnows with those PA’s. And when they hit they crush em. I’m down anytime you want to go back! Thanks for the trip man, appreciate it.
