I went up to Brant Lake again over the weekend to do some more ice fishing, and to try to catch another Brown Trout like the week before. That didn't happen, although I did have a good time.
This time I went with my father and a couple of his friends, one of whom owns a small camp in the nearby town of Graphite. This marks the second year that we've all stayed at 'ice-fishing camp' for Presidents Day weekend. I hope to make it three next year.
I went back up to Brant Lake over the weekend to try my luck on the ice again. Like last time, the trip started with a stop at The Crossroads Country Store, for a breakfast sandwich and two dozen icicles for bait. This time we picked up a container of grubs too, I had gotten a tip to use them when jigging, and figured I would try it.
We got to the lake at about 8am, and were on the ice all set up by 8:30. My father worked on his auger a bit, cleaned the carburetor, and had it running. In fact, he had ten holes cut for me and my friend before we even got there.
