First time ice fishing

It was grandson, Matt, age 10, first time ice fishing. He hadn’t gone the evening before, but was ready to go after seeing the picture of the walleye his dad caught. I think he had thoughts of getting a bigger one. Well, he didn’t get a bigger one, but he did catch five walleyes; three nice keepers and two small ones to release. His dad caught two nice walleyes and grandpa, fishing outside, caught a walleye and two sauger.

When we returned home Matt’s mother quickly reminded him of the program she had when she was his age. She would get a candy bar for each fish she caught and the program has continued with the grandchildren. Ouch; candy bars are expensive now days.
