Fishing Hermitage Park Pond for Rainbow Trout under the ice is always something I like to try when home for Christmas. This is late in the season for these rainbows and sometimes they aren't very active as the oxygen levels in the lake fall. I got out to the lake around sunrise although it was cloudy so I didn't see it. I wasn't getting any hits in a usual spot so I moved across the pond to another spot. Right around noon I had the first hit on the Jaw Jacker and lost him at the hole. Lowered back down and soon had a nice 16 inch rainbow. I underestimated in the video at 14 inches. After that the bites were on and off. But must have had 15 fish on the line and hits on the Jaw Jacker but only ended up getting four on the ice. It was a lot of fun. Check out the video for all the details and how you can catch more fish at Hermitage Park pond. Get out there before they winterkill. The action was fast and furious in the afternoon.
