~~~Went up to the Minden Bait shop and picked up 2 doz med. minnows(wrong size), got to our lake, had to climb over a 3' ice jam at shore, but it was solid ice on the walk out if not very slippery, no snow for traction. got to an area where we found about 8 old frozen holes  We drilled 4 holes found we had 15" of ice over 30' of water, and got set up, and partner hooks into their first 1.5lb. Trout ever. Trout hit the bait twice, so about hour later I had one on a very nice 3lber. we had most the action in the AM losing 3 others, reason I believe that the minnows were too big, and they were only hanging on, before releasing, when I gutted to Trout, smaller had some dragonflies larvae's in its stomach, while the lager Trout, has about 25 small minnows, which tells me I bought the wrong size.

Hoping to get one if not 2 more trips out

At least now you have a guideline for next year and will take the right size minnows.

I'm with you there. I'm in waiting mode now for the ice to melt away so I can get my boat out. I finally upgraded my fish fisher to the Helix 5 and looking forward to using it.
