About 15 minutes later Jimmer's hot tip up called Lord Zed went up. Quick story on Lord Zed. As a child Jimmer loved the Power Rangers, especially Lord Zed, so Jimmer's father cut out a Lord Zed picture and glued it to the flag of a Beaver Dam Tip up which helped convince Jimmer to go along ice fishing with his father to use this very tip up. Since those days, Lord Zed has landed numerous Pike, with several true monsters! So when Lord Zed went up, it was no surprise as this tip up has been lucky for years!
There were several highlights of the trip looking back. It was really neat to see my brother in law land his first Trout through the ice, as he was kind enough to let us crash at his place and take us out in Milwaukee. Roger's Clam Six Pack Ice Shanty was another highlight, as there was more than a six pack consumed in it throughout the day, and without it we simply would not have lasted out in the elements long enough to catch anything! It was also fun to catch up with old friends and teach some first timers how to catch Trout through the ice! Derek's big Steelhead was the last highlight of the trip, as it put up a fight for the ages that many of us will be talking about for years to come!
