Intense! What was it caught on?

I'm yet to catch any cat through the ice. They seem to vanish around here.

Thanks for the comments. I catch most of the cats with squished fatheads on a jig or circle hook under a cork. 6" off the bottom. In the last few days me and the boy been giving out a lotta sore whiskers. This 32+ inch and a 29 inch were the best. But many 22-24 inch fish too. Here's a video of one from last winter on late ice.

Because I did weight a 35" one time (my biggest) and that was at 15 and some change.
