started fishing at 2 setting tip ups in 5-15ft. not a flag til sometime after dark. I didn't see this flag til a couple minutes after it went up probably and when i got it the fish had taken the whole spool out and took my minnow, would of liked to see what this was. After this i decided to take a look at all my flags making sure the minnows were still there and one was gone with no flag trip while the other one i felt some tension and was a 15in walleye. Both flags came in 5ft and after dark. hope others had a good last day of walleye ice fishing in 2009.
