Found a Big Tree Under the Ice and Hammered Crappie!

Went to a pond out east to fish for some warm water species on 7 inches of ice, saw a tree sticking out, threw down the Panoptix Livescope and marked big school of crappie non stop! About 10 to 12 in an hour. Took me a while to figure out what they want and threw my whole tackle box at em just happens that my my buddy ties and makes jigs. His mop fly was money! Here is the video of the hot fishing action [log in for link]

Also if interested in the flies I was using here is the website, he’s a CO Springs local.

Yea, you’d think they’d hit anything I threw down at then I used all the classics first like Swedish pimple, tubes, soft plastics, they’d all get looked at but for some reason they couldn’t deny the mop fly.

Yeah, totally Tomky's place, and that tree is no secret. Been there myself, that exact spot. He's got tons of nice fish out there! Plenty of other species in that pond besides Crappie too.
