We got a big dump of snow. That always kills the bite and makes getting around much more difficult.

I had a fun day and caught around 60 pounds of large yellow perch for my fish broker and caught a nice Lake Whitefish which was around 6 pounds. I invited her for supper...lol

Just curios C I , how much do you get for these fish ? I've read up a little bit on this and saw anywhere from 2- 5 dollars a pound to the fish broker and 10-15 dollars a pound at the fish market . I've read that the local restaurants serve them as the premier fish dish in the summer . I laugh thing of the gazilions of perch we used to catch as kids both ice fishing and in the summer that we always threw back because nobody wanted to clean them . Oh and sunfish and bluegills were considered junk fish . Now I see lots of guys targeting them because they are delicious !

This must be a local thing around the big lakes in VT and New York . I have never see any of them on the menu or in a market around here in southern New Hampshire

Well we still have ice but the shore is shot. I'm calling it a season. I keep records and this end date is earlier than the average from the last 10 years that I have kept records. I could have planked on but was alone and decided it wasn't worth it.

Rifle deer season is done for me and I filled my tag with a tasty 6 point. Season ends in a week then an off week before the 9 day muzzleloader season starts. Back bays should be frozen by then so it will be ice fishing until hopefully April.
