Late ice in the mountains

Hit Vega this past Saturday for some late ice action...Figured with the grindy days i've had recently on the late ice, I would go here for some more thrills...Glad the GF and I made this choice because the action was great! We got our limit really quick and kept going after that! Another reason I'm glad we went is because I'm betting that reservoir is done for ice fishing until next winter.

Ice report: Mostly all the edges were open or slush for the first few feet. Near the boat ramp was fairly solid and we were able to get out fine. Made it to 2 feet of ice about 20-30 yards off shore. 2 other friendly anglers were there that day too and were crushing it over by the dam! They agreed as well the ice is probably done by the time i'm posting this.

Hope you all enjoy the video! Potentially our last ice of the season (See video intro for details), if it was, this was a good way to go out!!

Thanks man! They were great, love the trout out of that reservoir. We wanted to try the boat ramp out for this day. They seem much bigger in general over by the dam wall...The two anglers there that day said the top 3 of the ice tournament this year there, were all off the dam wall haha. Meat was really nice and pink...Already ate all 8 of them lol.
