Caught this football Saturday afternoon. 18" x 14" @ 4lb-3oz, my PB to date. Five feet of water with 34" of ice didn't leave much room between the bottom of the ice and the bottom of the lake but I set my bait, a 1/16oz Slushbug jig tipped with a beetle pupa a foot below the ice and dead-sticked in a Jawjacker. It was cool to see the 36" rod spring and not go to full height but instead bending downward as the fish peeled line. At first when the head came into the hole three feet below I thought it was a nice male bow but then it twisted and I saw the sides and realized I had a nice Brookie. That's when I really got excited!

And discovered that SK has a Master Angler Program like Manitoba's...wish I'd discovered that info a couple seasons ago as I'd have about a half dozen pike and at least 6 more brookies and a dozen rainbows I could have entered.
