Ice fishing Lake St. Catherine
Quite the crowd on Lake St. Catherine. Barbeques, chili, hot coffee and other refreshments were some of the highlights of the day. Most of the fish caught early, before 11 am. Tip ups with shiners and minnows in 25-35 feet of water seemed to be the most productive. 12-14" brown trout was the norm but but browns up to 4lbs and pike up to 8lbs were caught. There were also some 6-8" perch mixed in. Jigging was less productive.
Ice houses made it easier to stay out for the day. The sun was elusive. Many hearty folks braved the weather anyway.
