Watch out for the 12ft gators and 10ft sharks near the edge of the water. They'll have you and your dog for lunch.

Sounds like some memories are to be made shortly, have fun. I know the miss headwaters are in Minn but is it actually a river up there? I dunno if it's a small stream or what. Need to look that up. In the spring runoff the miss can be a mile wide in some places especially south of where the Missouri empties into it.

Walleye crappie large and smallmouth bass several kinds of catfish blue channel etc. What you catch depends on what rig or bait you use and where you use it. Check on line for info on good spots in your area and what lures or bait to use. If your boots arnt water tite bring extra dry socks. Tom

Did you ever catch anything? River ice fishing can be tricky and dangerous but also very rewarding.
