Early ice fishing isn't for the faint of heart, but big bluegills like these make it worth the risk.
This ice fisherman is on the hunt for big bluegills on a lake known to produce some nice ones.
Watch the video to see how many he catches and how big they really are.
Holy cow! I didn't think the words "catch and release" were in an ice fisherman's vocabulary.
Aside from this fisherman's mess of big bluegills, I'm also impressed with his toughness. While wearing no gloves, a hoody and a lightweight beanie he says, "It's kind of cold out right now. It's like negative five degrees." That, my friends, is why I don't do much ice fishing.
By using technology and knowledge of fish behavior, this fisherman was able to score big time. Grab your gear and hit the ice. With a little luck, you could experience similar action.
