Whoa... I was proud to survive a few hours on the ice and catch seven dinkers this morning. You've shattered my self esteem again. I'm no biologist, but I think one of those is a manatee. Incredible.

Thank you for your support and hey, at least you got fish. There’s a lot of skunks that take place in this industry. And you manage to a six or seven. Good work my friend.

Very nice fish! Are fires illegal on the ice? Same with use of live bait in that lake?

Thank you guys! My wife is actually from Minnesota, so it spelled UFDA. At least I think. Appreciate you guys for your support. We got lucky and caught a lot of monsters. The next episode has the bigger fish. Part two coming soon.

This is lake Jhon in north park very slim but a chance it could be north delaney but since delaneys are flies and lures only i doubt it

Fires are also illegal everywhere on the ice, unless it's in an enclosed container. But who cares or reads regulations anymore..

You guys have the magic touch. I have fished there year round for over 30 years.. I know exactly where you were fishing. Lots of browns, bows and cuttbows in the 4-6 lb range with several between 8-10. You guys either edit a lot of footage or are the king of kings. Never had action that fast and furious. Your camera stretches the truth a bit but everybody loves the fish porn. Thought I would have more time to play hooky once the kids grew up and moved out but........................NOOOOO!! Hasn't worked out that way. Keep posting!! Great viewing--from my office!!!!

Thanks for your support! Happy you enjoyed the video and yes it was on fire. Between the new moon and a proper barometer. The fish were definitely chewing. You are a lucky guy to get a fish there for 30+ years! We appreciate you taking the time to watch this from your office! Part two coming soon with even bigger fish, and just as hot of action. A few personal best and some amazing colored up Cutbows between 25 3/4 and 26 1/8 coming next! This episode was day one. The next one that is coming will be day 2

Nice ones. definitely big fish, but monters naw. When the record brown is 30lb, and rainbow is 19lbs. Now those are monsters. Monster in my opinion would be 12 plus pounds rainbows, 15lb browns. Now those would be some monters. Anyways nice fish.

Haha I don't think a fish needs to be approaching record size to be considered a monster and the number of large fish being caught is just incredible. I don't see any reason why you would "stretch the truth" either lol. Some of these comments crack me up. Well done!
