a beast in the northeast
« on: January 07, 2017, 05:53:51 PM »
6 years ago, i had never been ice fishing before.  but i stumbled on IF247 and met a bunch of really nice folks that gave me great advice and took me under their wings.  to this day, they still take me to great places to fish, help me out on the ice, and share everything they know.  i call them my friends.  so it was fitting that i was with many of them today when i landed a beast of a largemouth bass, the biggest freshwater fish i have ever caught.  what a way to start the season!

thanks to garyp, ranger22, lottie, kevin, (JT in spirit!) and everyone on this site that has helped me put fish on the ice.  also thanks to FM for running IF247 and giving me the jig that hooked this guy (know who makes it?  they are killer.).






tight lines!
