Scorpion --- people were ice fishing @ St. Vrain today. Let me know when you go, I'm buying some gear a week after Christmas.
They were having an ice fishing demo @ BPS today. It didn't look like you needed much gear. They had a swimming pool w/ a bunch of HUGE Trout in it, some over 20 inches. I'm not sure how I felt about it though, those fish didn't have a chance. They were charging $2, for a certain amount of time. If you caught one, they cleaned it and bagged it up for you.
king, I have to help my brother with a few things, so I can't go to 11-mile but I am going to try Loveland tommorrow (Sat) for perch. Mainly around the swim beach. I'll try and post a report when I get back home.
