@esaravo yes I am. I just gotta take time when I am finally home to go through.

Literally just caught this chain pickerel while looking for some small mouth.

So RI is experiencing some snow and slightly colder than normal weather. Me and my fishing buddy thought why not go fishing? We had to bust through about a half-inch of ice at the ramp, but we still managed to each catch a largemouth bass.

@Frontier2Xterra looks like a Northern Pike, close relative? Spots a little diff but that elongation, fin positions, and underbite...

@comic_book_man close relative. In the pike family. Doesn’t get near as big as northern pike but still can be fun to catch and watch your fingers when landed.

@esaravo very nice. I haven’t caught a bass in weeks.

@Frontier2Xterra, in Minnesota, a common nickname for northerns the size of your pickerel is "hammerhandle". LOL!! I grew up fishing for northerns. They were my favorite fish to catch and eat.

It's been a while since anyone posted anything here, so I figured I'd share this video from a few years ago and ask if anyone does any ice fishing. I used to go in my younger years, but as I got older I swear the ice house got colder!!!

Only about an inch or two of ice on the ponds right now, with warmer temperatures and rain forcast for this weekend. So like @Frontier2Xterra said, it could be a while before I can post any new fishing pics. But when I do, they will be ice fishing ones!

Welp....it was 42 on Saturday so I thought I’d go try my luck. The lake thought otherwise. I was very surprised to see it completely froze over. I didn’t think it’s been that cold here but apparently so.

Just a friendly bump to see if anyone has any pics. Don't want to see this closed / archived due to inactivity.

Just very cold water here in RI. It's supposed to stay near or below freezing for at least the next week, so I still hold out hope that there will be some safe ice in about two weeks.

Not caught. Just an eel photographed a couple years ago at aquarium. Can that count for for now? Haha

Here's a few fish from my last decent sized aquarium. It was a 40 gallon that I had to take down when I moved and I no longer have any room for it.

@Jesse_O My kid says he would like to try ice fishing....not sure he really understands. I'm 45now and he is 11 - the older I get the less and less likely I am to want to go ice fishing, long gone are the days where I'll do it without a hut!!!

@KatKomics Yeah, I was never a big fan of ice fishing while sitting on a pail. I did it for contests and when it was a really nice day, but I quit that years ago!!! An ice house is the only way I'd go now. I've thought about going to northern Minnesota and renting an ice house for a week. Some of those houses are nicer than some hotel rooms I've been in!!! LOL!!!

I was able to get out on the ice with a few fishing buddies about two weeks ago. I am not a big fan of ice fishing either, but it's the only show in town for at least another month. It was a slow day, two pickerel and two largemouth bass. Hope to get out this week, but with the weather fluctuating so much, it's not a given that you can find safe ice. Here's a few photos, including my buddy Al holding one of the bass.
