    Loved the video! Thanks.

    Go to B&J and talk to the guy from the video on lure selection.

    Get a bigger auger or drill 2 holes overlapping and use a chipper bar to remove the waste.

    Default Hardcore

    Yeah Jake and those guys are diehard ice fisherman to be out at -20 but then again this is Alaska.

    After all, if some of us only fished when it was a bove zero, we wouldn't get any fishing time at all.

    those were good lakers too

    Talking I was wondering.....

    ....how long it would take for my video to make it to this site......Talk to Alfonso or Tom at B&J about lures for lakers. 3 rivers isn't a bad bet either.

    Cheers and good fishing for all.

    RELEASE BIG LAKERS!

    Default depth

    I have been to Lake Louise several times and I have done well when I can find deep spots, but often I end up spending all my time drilling into the gravel. Is there a good depth map for Lake Louise and Susitna anywhere?
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Good video! I have seen you guys a few times out there. Surprised Tree hasn't told you about the "GOOD" spot yet <wink>. Once you guys catch "real" fish you are going to kick yourselves for not having a 10" auger,lol! Thanks for sharing.

    I have not found a depth map for Susitna or Tyone.

    Me neither.
    Susitna is where I've had the most trouble finding deep spots. The only time I did well was after I came accross some holes from a day or two before, ended up in 20 or 25 feet of water and knocked them dead, but couldn't find that spot again. (should have brought my GPS and marked it).

    In my experience, Susitna can be a bit intimidating when looking for fish. Where I would expect them to be, they are not. Lakers can be tough even when they are biting. 5% of the lake holds 99% of the fish it seems.

    I have not spent any real time on Tyone. Maybe this summer.

    So on louise are you guys spending more time in 50-75 feet of water or 15-30 feet. I tend to put all my time into the 25 foot range.... just curious what you others are doing

    I've caught fish (both big and small) from 6' to over 60' in Southcentral lakes. Plan to drill lots of holes in a variety depths. These fish don't school per se. You can either wait for one to come to you, or go get after them. Check back issues of Fish Alaska magazine--there are some fairly detailed articles in there the spell out what to do regarding depths, locations, techniques, etc.
