Bluegills & Backstraps for Wild Bill

One of our most tenured clients, known as "Wild Bill", set out for an early ice adventure on Lake Wallenpaupack.  The unseasonably warm day that followed some extreme cold days had the fish biting very well as Bill coaxed many strikes on the jig rod during the day as this was  a jigging only mission. The overcast skies made for a gray ceiling overhead as the venison backstraps cooked on the open fire while Bill reeled in panfish after panfish and made for a very nice venison sandwich lunch in between the catches.  He had an outstanding day limiting out on panfish consisting of bluegill and sunfish with a few perch in between and he also hooked into a couple gamefish along the way to punctuate his A+ day.  What a great way to kick off the Legends Outdoors ice-fishing season!
