Weekend of Ice Fishing


Recommended Posts

I spent the weekend with my oldest son and other extended family members ice fishing in central Utah.  Despite the abnormally warm weather, we were able to get out on the ice.  Saturday, the temps were in the low 60's, certainly odd sitting on the ice in those temps.  The fishing was as great as we had ever experienced with each of us catching around 70 trout for the weekend.  The winner was my 13 year-old nephew and his 25" Laker.  It was his biggest fish and he couldn't have been happier.


Here is a picture of my boy and a rainbow that he caught yesterday morning.  The wind was keeping the temperatures a little cooler that Saturday.



Here is my nephew's Lake Trout.



Saturday we had some excitement.  As I said, our temps have been well above average.  Normally, this lake will have more than 20" of ice,  and right now it is about 8".  As we were walking back a buddy of mine went through and took a swim.  Now, we got him out and everyone got off safe...and it is nice to be able to look back at it and have a laugh.  I think his last words before breaking through were, "if it will hold me, it will hold anyone."  As I said, the lake was safe for fishing and ATVs, but we had to cross a pressure ridge that was pretty soft.  This trip will certainly remain in all of our memories.
