Braedon Koerner caught some notable bluegills on an “epic weekend” in Wisconsin with his dad Bill.

“Lake X’’ in Wisconsin’s Washburn County marked the spot for an “epic weekend’’ and FOTW.

“My son whooped my butt on the ice and honestly I couldn’t figure out why,’’ Bill Koerner emailed. “I had better electronics and more experience but this kid put some huge [bluegills] on the ice, including the pictured 9.75-inch ‘gill caught on a tungsten jig (3mm) and a waxie. We had 15 inches of solid ice and drove the truck out to our spots. Braedon thought it was cool because the truck GPS showed us on the lake, not on a road. First time for him driving on ice.’’

The first time driving on ice is a memory for life.

They brought home 30 bluegills, one perch and a 12-inch crappie. All bluegill longer than 9 inches were CPR (Catch, Photo, Release).
