Channel catfish through the ice!

What an epic way to end off the ice season! I never thought I would get the opportunity to catch one of these Red River cats through the ice. What a fight it was on the ice rod, wading out to safe ice was worth it!

WADING to safe ice? You are an absolute madman. A massive cat through the ice sounds like a great time though - thanks for sharing!

Mad isnt too far off, but I did take safety percautions, it also helps that the safe ice was 3 feet thick.

Great fish any time of the year but thru the ice is epic!  Congrats!
