Recommended Posts

So cool! What a massive fish.

 

Can't wait to target them through the ice. I haven't eaten Ling in years.

Thats the only way I can actually catch them???

 

Nightime on the ice and its fish after fish

 

Ive only caught one in the daytime and its my pb at just under 5lbs

The first Ling that I caught, I almost lost it at the hole; expecting a pickerel and then seeing that ugly thing. My buddy said it looked like I reset the hook again; but not just with the fishing rod, my whole body as I jumped back away from it. LOL

Slug-shot the poor bugger three feet into the air.

Hahahahaha

 

Thats reminds me about 6 years back, I took a buddy ice fishing for his first time. He likes to fish but I wouldnt call him experienced.

 

His first fish that night was about a 3lb ling and ive never seen someone so scared of a fish.

 

Im telling him as I laugh, just unhook the thing and throw it on the ice.

 

To which he squirms and tries to reply as its wrapping around his forearm.

 

Hes so freaked.

 

Why throw it on the ice? Do we just kill these evil things?

 

Nah man were gonna eat it.

 

He almost pukes in his mouth hahaha.

 

We got off the ice about 6am, with limit of walleye and ling. I unhooked the rest he caught lol

 

Get home to some cold beers as I prep the fish

 

His first bite looks like hes about to taste alien brains. Second and 3rd bite he gets it

 

Ok, these fish are creepy but I can see why you keep them

 

Now he hits me up at least once every ice season for a ling fish???
