Last ice fishing trip of the season

Well we wanted to get out ice fishing one more time this season........ So four of us drove up to Lake Puckaway in Central Wisconsin looking for some pike. This lake holds the Wisconsin state record northern at 38 pounds! This large shallow lake which is apart of the fox river systems supports great size and numbers of game fish. Pike and walleyes are the most common but it also produces a good catfish and bass fishery. We set up at 8:30-5:30 for a all day fishing trip and the action was good. We had flags all day but only landed 4 pike (27,28,28,30) and one large bass. We were running huge shinners in the middle of the lake in about 4.5 feet of water. We also experienced a good amount of drops which is uncommon for us since we use light line and smaller hooks. We believe the drops were from catfish of large perch. Martin had a big one on which broke his line and he also had a bite off.

I have some pictures I will add soon as well.
