Had a decent night on the ice. After that crazy warm weather that we had, I wasn't sure how good the ice would be, but it was fine. Even had some fresh snow. As you can tell from my red nose, it was very cold. I wouldn't be surprised if the windchill was in the negatives. This walleye was the biggest of the night, just over 28" and a bit over 7 1/2 pounds. I think that the best part of this picture is my brother fighting another one in the background.

Nope. They were great! Planning on going back out again tomorrow. Hopefully they're still biting.

It’s a speckled trout, common in FL and is a saltwater species. It’s also not a true trout species, such Rainbows, Browns, etc. Specks have more in common with Redfish (Red Drum) and Black Drum than they do true trout species
