It's all about technique, I tell ya. I was trying to snap my coat shut with one hand while the other hand was holding my rod (but was completely out of control). Suddenly noticed that my rod was bent so I pulled a nice March slab from about 8' of water under 18" of ice. Caught 8 dinky blue gills too, but those were released to grow. Slab was 12 inches. Didn't have a scale, but this one is a personal best by far.
