Yes sir, it was an outstanding day; the bite was on, and the weather was perfect!

I'll tell you what folks, there aren't too many chances left to fish the ice, but if you've never tried it, and want to, it's not too late to get your Ice fishing Primer 101, from "Professer Bigbrown." Eric will get you on the ice, on the fish, and in the know, to ensure you have a great time.

Eric, good luck at the Granby Ice tournament this weekend!

Pete

I'll second that, Pete. Me and my girlfriend finally met Eric (BigBrown) at Dillon on Saturday. He initially gave us some leads a couple of weeks ago on where to fish at Dillon. Of course they paid off, which is why we went back this weekend. The bite really picked-up late in the day.

We're looking foward to fishing with BB again sometime! After seeing some of those lunkers he had pics of in his photo album, we're GEEKED!

Kudos to "Don in Denver", too. Back in October, he gave us tips on how to approach ice fishing (this is our first year trying it) and how to rig our equipment for the best opportunities.

Without a doubt, there's some excellent people here on this site!

Hey Dante-

Hadn't heard from you for a while and I've been wondering how you were doing. Thanks for the kind words. It's nice to hear that you and Carol are still catching fish and having fun. That's what it's all about! ;D
