I stopped out to the Cikowski Fishing Jamboree


I had to deliver a pizza on ice.  Apparently Jimmy’s dad ate his Hilltop pizza last fall and Jimmy was distraught with months ahead with no pizza from Hilltop.  Al feeling guilty of is pilfering of Jimmy’s pizza had this special pizza delivered by Mary Ellen and I brought it out on the ice for Jimmy


Fishing was already picking up.  This was the 2nd Northern of the morning.  They released the smaller one.


No wigglers anymore these were caught on minnows.  Not a bad catch for a beginning of an ice fishing trip


Fritz enjoying the sunshine and lake.  It was a perfect warm morning for icefishing on Lower Kaubashine


The secret for catching fish


They had a first time ice fisherman along.  Great day to be skipping a few days of school to spend time with dad and his uncles.  Tip up flag up and ready to be checked


Pulling up the big catch


Better luck next time.  Perfect time to learn how to ice fish

To all Poe fans out there.  He has completely recovered and is on a strict dog food only diet


Had a group of guys up fishing this weekend who listened to my advice on their 2nd day and headed over to where Grandpa Gibson was fishing.  They did not start until 11 am and slow and steady all afternoon had the crappies coming through.  The top 2 crappies were about 13 or so inches give or take maybe an inch more.  They would catch 3 or 4 and then it was quiet for 40 minutes.  All of them were caught on Wigglers (Mayfly Larva) that they picked up in town.  Under the stack is one of the finicky perch that eluded Grandpa Gibson earlier in the week.  They only caught one perch the rest were crappie.  Had the walleye tip ups out as well but only found the crappie


The day before they headed to Big Arb and caught these perch.  They said the fishing was much better on Lower Kaubashine
