Last Ice Steelhead

Recommended Posts

I went out for the last time on 03/11/12 and set up on 3 inches of ice for the last trip. At 8:30 am the first flag went off and it was ripping line off from the tip up. I set the hook and so began a 25 minute tug of war. I use 8 lb mono with no backing so I have to be ultra careful to get the fish in. Finally I got the head to the hole a couple of times and he peeled 40 feet each time. The third time he came by the hole my partner reached in and grabbed it. I never weighed it but I have caught enough of them to make a good guess at 13 pounds.
