Did some ice fishing over here in Western Colorado, near the Flat Tops wilderness area. Landed some good size Rainbow Trout and Cutbow Trout with the cookie cutter fish being about 16" and thick. Biggest one of the day was about 19". The fish were finicky and we had to keep switching between a bunch of different patterns of jigs, lures, etc. to figure out what they wanted...lots of fish coming up to the lure, staring, and swimming away.

We landed fish on the swedish pimple, various tungsten jigs with maki soft plastics, and of course the jawjacker tube - on and slightly off the bottom.

This day was pretty nippy, showed up to about -2 degrees and I of course forgot my gloves. My buddy let me use a single spare mechanic glove that didn't help at all lol 😂😂. I was happy to land a few fish right away but after my hands got wet, I had to take a small break. I feel I came close to frostbite this day.

Overall good day though with lots of fun! Got some drone shots of the surrounding area and even landed a fish while flying my drone (one hand holding the controller and the other, the rod)!! Hope you guys enjoy!!

Nice fish...they eat real good from there too. As a kid, I hooked a 15 to 20 lb giant trout in the white river bout a quarter mile upstream of that reservoir... fought it an hr but it broke off..two weeks later dad went back and hooked him again, same story...dont know what such a monster was doing In the white.
