This past weekend the Idaho Panhandle Bass Club hosted their annual Ice Breaker tournament on Lake Coeur d'Alene. This year it was almost a literal "ice breaker" as the ice just recently melted enough to fish. Leading up to the event it was questionable if the event would even take place, but it did and CDA showed how great it can be.
I personally fished this event and didn't catch a single bass, but the results were impressive. A 25-pound bag and also a 7+ pound smallmouth were brought in. The top four teams all had 20+ and there were many big bass brought in.
Here is a shot of the area around Harrison where the tournament launched and where many of the big bags came from.
