|Leavitt Bay Effingham NH, Lake Ossipee|
We sought advice from a local bait shop, they recommended we head to Lake Ossipee the recommendation was to find a spot with between 20 and 30 feet of water and try to find the school. So we headed to Camp Marist in Effingham, I work there in the summer as their naturalist and got permission from the brothers to fish there.
|Knee deep snow, it could be worse!|
We drilled holes in the ice until we found a likely spot and quickly caught the only fish we'd see all day. One dinky little yellow perch. Dave pulled this lunker through the ice jigging with a tiny jig tipped with a wax worm. Now our rules dictate that we must eat the first legal example of the species we catch, yellow perch have no size limits so we had no choice we had to eat the dink...Who made these rules anyway? Check back soon for the perch recipe...
|Dave finds every fish to be exciting!|
