Met Mitch (the Cajun) this morning in Florissant. Was fishing at 6:45-10 am. Good 18 inches of ice in 11-12 feet of water. Was his first time ice fishing and he kicked ass. ;D Mitch caught 6 and I caught 4. We kept 3, all 16 inches. The Automatic Fisherman had a good hit but by the time I got there the fish was off. I'll get one next week with it. : Seen quite a few inspect our jigs and we each had a couple other hits. The ice fishing tournament was this morning also. Not as many anglers as in years past. When we started drilling the holes some guy came running over and said "Are you in the tournament? No drilling till 7 am." Go away dude. Half the fish were caught on some little jigs Mitch tied. Pretty cool. Mitch said he liked that sight fishing and couldn't wait to go again. I'm ready.
