These guys don't always catch a brown trout through the ice, but when they do it's a huge one.
The second you see the head on this thing floating just under the hole, you'll be thankful you checked all your gear and filled the spool with new line.
This thing looks like a VW with spots!
Watch and see if they get it out or get pulled in.
It's always good to see and hear the excitement and the way that they show concern for getting that big brown back to the water.
There aren't many other ways that you can pull a slob like that up through the hole without somehow grabbing it by the gill, but that fish didn't get hurt too bad.
Cheers to these guys for taking care of that beautiful fish, but we'll be happier when they tell us where they were.
