Good evening folks. Just read about a championship ice fishing here in the Netherlands and the participants catch nothing. Sad isnt it ?.Thats remind me of a few weeks ago. A day i never forget my first time ice fishing with my friends from hungary.We make a few holes and put our hooks in the water.Brr freezing cold the water !.We drink some palinka and yes after twenty minutes we got our first catch a Pike !.Not a giant but come fish is fish.Meanwhile we eat some sandwich & drink some palinka and believe it or no within forty-five minutes we hooked more two pikes !. Oh yeah amazing first time ice fishing and catch Three pikes.So i really dont understand that twenty-five participants dont catch nothing.!
