You need to hook into one first. Fight it for a long period of time while your company hovers over your back staring into the dark abyss, looking for the monster to show its face.

To plug a hole, simply insert fish into hole head first :lol:

Its really important to go fishing with someone who knows how to entice fish into biting. After a lengthy question / answer period, driving slowly on a snow covered highway we arrived, anxious to get our baits into the water. Once everything was setup, the action started. Like kids at a trout pond, the excitement was heard all around :lol:

It snowed, it rained, it froze, rained again, froze again. Laker don't care.

@NADO - 5 inches of black ice. Just make sure to have a heavier guy leading the way on your way out. Stay back 100 feet :lol:

:lol: O.M.B. The guy we were fishing with suggested to have the pin in the photo, so it was placed on my back :lol: Honestly, I love the pin and fish it everywhere, jigging walleyes, top water bass, etc. Had to be careful where I placed it... it did freeze up towards the end but s'all good. When the fish went for big runs, it was intense... quickly unfroze the pin :lol:
