Went ice fishing today with Brandon.  Met up with Barney and Parker Barnett on the lake.  Mantua Reservoir that is.  I wanted to target blue gills and try to stay away from the trout.  Well it worked partly.

We caught several trout and six keeper blue gills.  Missed a ton of bites and in all had a great time.

I think Parker outfished us as I ended up two quarters short of what I started with.  I had been fishing for at least a hour and a half before he even got there and within 15 minutes he had 3 of my quarters!  I love ice fishing!  Like Parker said, you can be fishing two feet from the next guy and not getting a bite, while he is catching fish one after the other.  That was sort of the case today.  We were not even 10 feet away from each other and bam…he was yelling fishon!….

It is always fun!  Thanks guys!
