First ice.

Went out yesterday and caught a dozen nice crappie and a bunch of smallish perch. Ice was about 15” thick but was getting slushy on top. Caught 3 crappie and a bunch of perch on my pvc pipe gadget shown above. I hope to get out a few more times this week before weather turns too warm.

Made a new gadget for deadstick in a hole near where I’m jigging. Trigger automatically sets the hook.

Got a close up of the trigger mechanism? Looks very interesting.

It’s a piece of coat hanger, the kind for hanging slacks with the cardboard tube. I used the bend at the end to drape the line over. It’s about 8” long total. The piece that goes into the eyelet is about an inch long. The fold over is held with zip ties but black tape would work too. I will try to get a close up but it is currently out in my ice sled.

My ice is mostly gone and I seen some fish getting there swim on. This one followed me around pretty sure it was hoping I threw some pellets well I disappointed it.

I like it for having another line in the water. It seems to catch about 1/3 as many fish as active jigging.
