We haven't been fishing much in the last few weeks, but some cold weather has gotten us excited about fishing.
So this morning we headed to Pequawket Pond in Conway at 6:30 this morning.
We had everything ready, jigging poles, ice shanty, bait, portable ice shanty and underwater camera.
We were ready!

Our friend Chris Proulx from White Mountains TV came along for the fun.
As you will remember last December we blogged about ice safety, so we took our own advice.
Clay walked out on the ice and drilled a hole every four feet.
First he had to dig through a foot of snow, then 4 inches of slush and finally he was able to drill into the ice. Just two turns of the auger and he was through the ice, a quick measure and the ice was only 3 inches thick.
Happy New Year!
