Need to find Better Line on two of the Rods I used The line was freezing up badly . The Flouro 3# on the Straightline worked great though .

Went out for about two hours to Shepherds Lake .2:30-4:30 pm .Cut 4 holes at the Bluff .Saw two other Fisherman that also got skunked . 3 or 4 times in two of the holes I saw fish on the Flasher slowly approaching my bait at around 24' ,two feet off bottom .They sniffed at my bait and retreated. I had one Rod on an Ice Rigger that got no attention . The two jigging baits that got attention but no strikes were: a Straightline /Marmooska Jig /Waxies setup and a Spoon/Shiner head deal. Spoons tried were Gold,Swedish Pimple, Silver Nungesser.
