|Our trusty ice steed. Always starts, even if it dies soon afterwards.|
|Same body, different layout, both effective.|

I had a great time today. I always feel so blessed to have such great fishing companions. We joked all day about our fishing, our struggles, and our happiness. As I packed in for the day I was reminded of why I rarely fish Lake Mendota. The ride was cold heading back to the car. Despite the face mask and my Ice Armor I was cold. Once back in the car I paused a while to take in the view. This area of Madison is really beautiful. The ice went on forever and the freshly fallen snow made everything look so clean and crisp. I always hope at the end of a good day fishing that I will get at least one more chance to do it again. Until next time, please remember to limit your catch, not catch your limit.
