"Get Hooked on New York"

Epic Day on the Ice Details
Name:Epic Day on the Ice
Created By:volume4130
Details:After having a pretty tough season so far, we went out this weekend hoping to turn things around. Saturday did not work out so well, but we did crush the 8" pickerel. They didn't stand a chance.

Sunday was another story. Tried a new lake and when we got there it was pretty crowded. We found a spot that wasn't crowded and set up. About an hour later flags started flying...all bass 1-2lbs. The jig bite was on too. About noon, I go over to check a flag, set the hook and felt decent pressure fighting back on me. All of a sudden a giant maw pokes up into the hole. I reach in and grab a 5-3 largemouth!

After a few victory fist pumps, I calm down and start jigging a little. Catch a few panfish, a few more bass on the tip ups..then all of a sudden something big grabbed my tiny jig. It took line, I reeled it back up, it ran, I fought back. 5 minutes later I see another huge jaw appear in the 6" hole. Reach in and grab a 5-2 largemouth! I just about crapped my pants...2 5 pounders in one day?! I've only caught 2 5 pounders in my life, so I just doubled it in one day!

I saw a bunch of people on the Lower Mystics ice fishing Sunday and saw a guy holding up a pretty big striper and high-fiving all his buds. I was moving with traffic behind me, so I couldn't stop.
