Story: It was a slow day on the river for panfish, jigging waxes produced one 9-1/2-inch perch early. Patience persevered as we had a flag up on average each hour and a half. By the end of the day, the three of us had landed a 32-inch-plus northern, and had a catch and release of a trophy walleye. It was a great time on the ice!
