Default Failed attempt

After reading all the info from everyone and seeing the pics, I just couldnt take it anymore. I had to get out and fish. So I made my first ever ice fishing attempt. I hit Chatfield north marina for about 4 hours on Sat morning. Ice was about 6 inches. I had two come unbuttoned quickly after the hook set and lost a decent trout at the hole. This is going to take some time to get the "feel" for ice fishing. I had a great time though and look forward to my next try. Thanks to everyone posting great info and tips for someone like me to learn from.

Yeah, for heading out alone your first time, that's not bad at all man. You might try and head out with someone, use the Partner section....good luck! I owe cff for getting me into it too, and now they should all be owing me for all the money I've spent!

Thanks for the support guys. Actaually one of the members here did offer to take me out, but I had to keep it close to home last weekend, so I tried on my own. We are getting together to give it a shot this weekend.
