First of all, I would like to thank John RatherbeIcefishin' for hosting a group of Chi Town IceHoles
today at Beautiful Lake Holiday. Goose Hunter and I were just a tad tardy but that didn't matter.
I might miss a name but we had a good showing.
Atitagain & Bro ( Thanks for the grillin' Boyz )
N9Phil and son Jeff, Bears Fan
John & Co.
Thanks again for the help toting the old fellers gear out to the spot. It made the day very managable.

The ice was right. The companionship was great...Oh yeah Eats as well.
Heck even the fish joined the party.

John, Phil and Ang.

Some of the others will likely post on todays outing.
Here's the catch that made the trip to Chicago this P.M.

Thanks again for the invite John. I enjoyed myself and I am sure the others did as well.
I got to baptize my new LX5 and my Battery pack drill rig.

Chas. How could I forget that. :doh They are great. I wore them with lite weight thinsulate ankle high boots
and Layered socks.
They are at least half the weight of my Sorells, very warm and the cleats worked very well on the glare ice today. I am very well satisfied. :thanks

I just got through cleaning the fish from today. Jeff and I ended up with 22 Nice Bluegills, 4 Crappies, 4 stripers and 1 donor Catfish.

John, again I want to thank you for the invitation and another Great day fishing. It was great to get out and fish with fellow Iceholes.

It was also great to hear that Angelo finally figured out (even tho it was late in the day) that he needed to turn his wax worms around before putting them on the hook :rotflmao :rotflmao :rotflmao

Thanks for the invite John. Quality fishery for sure!

Got to meet old and new faces and had fun, minus my auger troubles. Small presentation baits w/ custom jig wedgies worked out best for me today. I kept 2 nice crappies, 7"+ gills and lil yellow bass. All were scaled up and will be baked whole.(My boys love eating them whole.) John also donated a handful or so to the mix.

Thanks again John and everybody who made it out.
