CUSTER -Most fishermen will tell you, there are no bad days. Some are good, and some are not so good. But the thing of it is, it’s pure enjoyment. The fresh caught fish cooking in the pan is not always guaranteed, even for the best of them. Brothers Joe and Jared Noyes were on the full pan side of the quest today. After a fruitless outing on Sheridan Lake the other day, the brothers decide to try their luck at Stockade Lake in Custer State Park today. The telltale shout of “I got one” by an excited Joe Noyes signaled the success the brothers were having on the lake. An area of roughly 30 feet was covered with fishing holes drilled in the ice. Sometimes this is necessary to find that sweet spot where the fishing is outstanding. Success. Around 2:30 pm, Joe and Jared had not reached their legal limit but decided to pack up their gear and head on out with the catch of yellow perch, black crappie and bluegill.
