Fished gills yesterday on shaky ice (things should firm up over the next couple days). Fished the new Frabill 36" quicktip ice rods paired with the Frabill straightline reel that Brian Brosdahl showed us at the Fishing Show in Novi and absolutely loved them. The hot bait was the new VMC tungsten fly jig - we were super impressed with these little baits! Caught nice gills up to 9.5" but the key was that you didn't even need to tip with bait. Instead of the meat and juice from a wax worm inticing the fish, the feather hackle did all the convincing. The end result was tons of fish - all caught and released.
