Catfish through the ice???? Who would have ever thought such a crazy thing?  But in all honesty, if you have never done it, you are missing the action.  Today a couple of my buddies went out to a honey hole in some river backwaters and got on one amazing bite.  Normally I would be on this venture with them, but today I just couldn't make the trek.  Mike and Sean boated somewhere in the neighborhood of 80 catfish during their day on the ice.  Unbelievable action fellas and congrats on the successful venture.  catfish 018.jpgThese critters are some of the funnest and toughest fighting fish that I have ever hauled through an 8" hole.  You can bet that there will be more stories and pictures in the near future. 


Good luck to all!

Happy Holidays! 

Fish On!
