Catching brook trout on ice
After my outing with the 4 boys yesterday, I decided to head out for trout again, this time, brook trout were the target species. As we were on public water with no cabins or management, I left the younger boys at home, to go out with Ari and Avi, ages 17 and 12.
After making sure that we were on safe ice, we set up 4 lines. Didn't take long for the action to start, and it just got better and better. As one hole would slow down, we'd drill another, only to find more fish almost each time, often within a few feet of each other.
We ended catching our 20 fish limit (2 permits) in about 2.5 hours.
Truly miraculous ice fishing!
Hope to head up North with the boys again next week, planning to target bass/pike before school starts again.
