So here's the deal. I'm fairly new to the area and just recently took up ice fishing. I set some goals for myself
1. Catch pike through the ice
2. Get a big char out of Big Lake
3. Catch burbot
4. Get a respectable lake trout
I would've thought getting a pike would be simple. As it turned out its not! I've fished for five days and only hooked one (the first 20 minutes I fished for them)
I got the char already and fished burbot tonight with good success. (Hooked 6 landed 4)
What am I doing wrong? I normally fish 3 tip-ups and jig. I must admit, I'm starting to get a complex!
Any advice I could get would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance, Kris
