This came on a shinny colored "gill "getter lure and a waxie.

This Bass came from a medium size minnow and a hand made lure. So I have not noticed any single lure that catches more bass than the others throught the ice.

It might just be the time of year. I normally catch them on early ice and late in the year. I have caught a few around this time in the past but not this year, I haven't caught one for at least a month.

I usually catch them on late ice with a bright yellow/greenish jig tipped with a minnow head.
