Well, have had only one bad ice fishing trip this past winter, and that was on Beav. The worst otherwise was a day I got 12 gills, 2 were over 8 inch, and 3 keeper size crappie, biggest was 12 inch. That was Middle Genessee, the 2nd toughest lake I fish. Tried to redeem myself again today on Beav. Nope. Fished 4 hrs and caught only 2 keeper perch, 12 1/4 and 9 3/4, plus a bunch of dinks. For the first time in my whole life, did not catch a bass on Beav. This lake has my number

Fishin been very good for me this winter, so I decided to hit a tough lake for a change. Well let me tell ya, ol Beaver brought me down to earth. Any time I start to think I'm a pretty good ice fisherman, I just head on down to Beaver and get schooled.
Fished 4 hrs in the afternoon in what I know is a"good" area. There was around 80 holes drilled by others the last week that were not frozen over. So I only drilled like 5 of my own. Fished like 30 holes and had 2 tip downs out. Caught 4 fish in 4 hrs. Two keeper perch, a 9 inch bass and an anorexic 23 inch pike. Nobody else I talked to caught much either.
Thanks for the reality check, Beaver. Going back to fishing much better lakes, see ya after ice out
