My first NAIFC tournament was definitely a learning experience.  Pre fishing lead to be a tough struggle trying to find any decent bluegills.  After cover all of the safe ice and weed beds I could find, all we found were small perch, small bluegills and a lot of large...

This past weekend kicked off the Team Extreme (WI) Ice Series on Lake Menomin. Just like last year it was a cold one! Pre fishing went great and I had my game plan set by noon on Saturday. Sunday morning with -17 degrees started off rough. When temps are that cold my f...
