Hey hard water fishing experts,
I realize that it is silly to give away local honey holes due to the fishing pressure on easy access lakes so I am not asking for that.
My son is 2 1/2 and a fishing nut! He can get bored if there aren't fish coming up that hole. He doesn't care how big they are. Last week he realed up an 8 incher and you would have thought it was some kind of a trophy. Wow dad dats a big fish he screamed. Went out for a pee break and he was attracking ice huts and scaring away fish. Guess size is relative when camparing to the 4 inchers we had been catching
Anyway, I just started ice fishing again after a 20 year break. I thought that I better get it figured out so I can teach him the ropes.
I have been enjoying many of the local lakes but lately I have been thinking about stretching out in search for the big boys.
I have an airplane and spent some time exploring last year. Hewitt, alexander, sucker, figure 8, are among the list of remote lakes I tried last year. I had fun chasing pike but would like to find some rainbows and lakers.
If anyone has any fishing secrets from off the beaten path (ski plane access) that they are willing to share, shoot me a PM and I would really apreciate any pointers. Seems like looking for a needle in a hay stack sometimes. Alaska is amazing and huge. When you do decide to try and new spot your drilling an 8" hole on a 400 acre lake. I just finally picked up a power auger so drilling more test holes is possible now. I'm not asking for your private honey hole out in front of your cabin but if you have had success and don't mind sharing, I would love to try it out. Thanks.
