Took my basketball partner in crime fishing

I've coached with Coach Parker for 6-7 years, boys and girls varsity basketball...We've had a lot of good times and fun memories over the years on the hardwood, and we decided to try and have some good times out on the ice as well! He loves fishing, so sort of strange it took me this long to get some lines out with him.

We went during a terrible time, middle of the day and not a cloud in the sky but we still managed a handful of fish. We also doubled up in quite a ridiculous fashion battling through two tangled lines and still keeping the fish on....Marked A LOT of fish but most were very finicky. What got the bites were loud jigs with micro soft plastics. Got one on the Roadside minnow baby guppy (pink/chartreuse tail) and the rest on the transparent pink nano fry.

We had a game the prior night so we weren't feeling like getting up early lol. Now we have a big game tomorrow for the league title...Not fishing related but wish us luck😀

Enjoy the pictures and video link if you have time!

Just got a chance to look at this one. Too late to say good luck, but hope your title game turned out well. I've torn both my rotator cuffs with my hand auger this year. Santa is going to have to bring me one of those big bad drills.

Some call us crazy, but pulling fish through the ice keeps me from going insane in the winter. Best line in this one is "I just love fishin"

Thanks Barnacles! We lost a close one but 1A,2A,3A classifcations is weird so we get another chance in the district tournament. OH MY GOD! Both rotator cuffs? That's rough man, i'm sorry to hear that. You should definitely get a drill auger!!

Hahaha well it's true...As much as I do enjoy catching bigger fish, I just love fishing and am happy to be "fooling wild animals into biting my pieces of wood and metal so I can look at em" - Dustin Connell

Right on!! Btw. I took my fishing partner to a basketball game and committed 3 crimes. No fish though. Keep the pics and vids coming. Great as always.
