let me first off say there might not be any size here but i achevied something i thought was nearly impossible. work called and said i dont have to come in today, so i took off with my goal in mind. game set match..... (sorry if some pics are good and some are not, had to keep changing from MMS mode to reg mode on cell to send to pops :-\ )

7 species, one day, metro open water, in december

Started off at Webster lake in thornton knowing perch and trout are avaliable, i pull up and start walking to the lake, then low and behold the DOW is there stocking the lake with trout. :eek: i wait till he leaves and throw out a waxie on a jig, wham one on right away as they are all schooled up in one spot, one leaving here and there i get 19 total till they finally all break apart, then it was dead, so i went over to the big drop off and put an ice jig on with a waxie. got about 6 little perch.... then i said off to the next lake.

so then i head to twin lakes ponds in serch for largies and some crappie, i get there and half of the lake is skim ice, i went sad but walked to the far shore and the whole cove was open, using a green and white mr twister one one spinning it slowly in and a ice jig with 2 waxies on the other floatin on a bobber, nothing but about 5 little large mouths ith no sign of a crappie. then my bobber starts bouncin and i go to set the hook and me being an idiot i forgot to reel the slack before i set the hook, off whatever it was.... keep castin one largemouth here and there (small) and i cast out look over and thought my bobber was gone, k nope. pick my pole back up start reeling and theres one on already, he must of hit it when it was falling, happend twice in a row then it was dead.

then i say alright i gotta get back down south before rush hour starts, hit the house and throw the trout in the freezer, grab some hotdogs and cheese bread and off i was to stern, i get there and they got the pumps going, barely any ice at all, set up the usual rigs and get out there as the sun starts to shine. took one of the smaller poles and tied on a small fly and threw it around the rocks for some gills, they took it (had to do something waiting for the carp) enough of that lost my fly as my drag starts peelin out. carp on! get him in throw his slimey arss back and drifted the cove with some hotdogs for the kitties.... 30 min nothing, then 1 little one, 5 min later another one. i went to the truck after that to grab my smokes, i return and someones loose dog is up on the table eating my hot dogs and bread, he takes off when i run over and keeps goin. so that was it for me..........all in all a very interesting exciting adventorus day. never though this would happen

Good work!! I think the most species i have ever caught in 1 day was 4!!

However I have never made it a mission to catch as many species as possible. LOL.

Stern isnt a bad little lake for some carp action!! Plus it has a park to intertain the kids :)
