Took the wife up to the Grand Mesa to get our first Ice on of the year! Its the only safe place near the Western Slope to Ice right now. Headed to Mesa Lakes Lodge. Its good to be near a lodge with a fire for when the wife gets cold or bored. The ice was 6-7" thick with about 5 inches of slush. About 6 inches of snow on top of the slush. SLUSH sucks. caught over 20 a piece which kept the wife happy and kept her interest. We caught mostly Rainbows, 2 Browns, and 2 Brookies. Caught them on craw colored tubes and HD Ice lures. the 17' brown almost ripped the rod out of my hand when he hit the HD in bubble gum. It was all in all a very fun trip.
