My wife and I went out to Chena Lakes ice fishing in those rental shanties Saturday - she caught 3 on pop corn shrimp.
Really slow, the bite started after noon, they bit the bait within 3' of bottom of the hole in 25' + deep water. It was her Valentines Day present and as usual she caught some fish. :-) Always a good thing!
We are looking forward to bigger fish - further east as the temps moderate and the days get longer.
Would be great to read other reports too and hear of your successes here in the further north!
We have the full gear rigging for ice fishing but no depth/fish finder. Will probably look for holes on the big lake and work from the bottom up with the prescribed lures for lakers. Any suggestions would be appreciated on Lakers. We are C&R on Lakers. I have experience w/Lakers on lake Louise and Char on Big Lake. Looking forward to fishing up here now that it is getting warmer!
