Rachel goes ice fishing

Jonathan and his family were home for a long weekend and taking Rachel ice fishing was on the schedule. Late Saturday afternoon the three of us went to my little shanty on the river; opened the two holes and fished for better than an hour. Fishing the river for walleye in late February is not a very good way to introduce a seven-year old to ice fishing, but she was a good girl and held her jig stick the entire time. There was only one bite that we could verify and Jonathan caught that fish, a nice 16 inch walleye. One bite, one fish; that has been so typical this past month.
