AM I THE 1st...
Doubt I am the 1st to punch a hole this year....BUT I HOPE I WAS.
My folks have some property above the Buckhorn Canyon and there is a small pond up there that has a few BOWS in it. This pond has a little dock that extends about 15' out and is in about 5' of water. I carried a 2x4 out and punched through the 1 1/2" of ice. Dropped a crawler down on a 6' UGLY STICK and WHAMMO.....12" TROUT. Ended up with 3 for breakfast. All I can say is.....BRING ON A REAL LID PLEASE MOTHER NATURE.....
GOOD LUCK AND GR8 TIMES..........TONY
GOOD NIGHT CHESTY...where ever you are!!!!
