He had a pile of fish already on the ice, but the kokanee were coming through in small bunches and deep under the ice.
Even with the ice from four to seven inches deep, not many people are fishing the lake - that is fine with me and the few of us enjoying the outings. But at 4:15, my fish finder indicated a large school of kokanee just under the ice. Five minutes later I had all my kokanee. I dropped down to the bottom at 77 feet down to fish for perch. They were also feeding heavily. I finally had to leave by my headlight.
What a great way to spend an evening in the Wilds of Idaho.
