Son Jon just returned from a couple of evenings on the ice near Walker, Minnesota.  Here's what he experienced.

* Sixteen inches of clear ice with very little snow on top.

* Found the pan fish in 23 feet of water.

* The hot terminal tackle was the Lindy Ice Bug.

* Tipped with wax worms.

* Day time fishing was mostly slow.

* The hot bite started at 5:00 p.m. and lasted about two hours.

* Put 15 crappies and 25 bluegills on the ice.



* All the crappies were small but cleanable.  The bluegills ran large, some bigger than a hand.

* All the fish fried up real sweet.
