I finally took time off and make it a priority to go fishing. Went up to Diamond with a friend of mine ( Stinkifishi ). This was both of our first times ice fishing and I would have to say I definitely will be doing this again. Stinki got their around 10:30 and started digging his hole ( with a shovel, BTW don't attempt this it is easier to just get an auger ). I showed up at around 11 and he just had his hole dug. He said some of the other fishermen told him that the bite was on just before he got there and he hadn't gotten a bite yet. He pulled up his bait for some reason and I put my jig down and with in 30 seconds I had my first bite. He informed me that that was just my line getting hung up on the ice so I put it back down and with in 15 secs I had my first fish. He then informed me that he thought he could put me in that hole in the ice. LOL!! I then started digging my own hole ( as stated before USE AN AUGER!! ) It took me at least a half an hour of digging. In the middle of me digging his son hooked and landed one and he hooked and lost one. I finished my hole and got my bait down to finally get another one before I had to leave to go home. All in all it was a fun day on the ice.
