Seldom does the enjoyment of a fishing adventure equate to how much you spend
This week I'm up near the Canadian border on Lake of the Woods.
Recently, I was in Minnesota and went to the St. Paul Ice Fishing show while I was there I stoped by the Frabill booth to check out some of their new products.
We started out fishing the “basin” area outside of Pine island. Although it was still fairly fresh ice (there was still some open water only 2 days before we arrived), the ice conditions out to about 30 foot were 5 to 10 inches so we were able to get out there with snowmobiles, ATVs and our portable Clam shelters. Many of the resorts had their first slew of permanent houses positioned from about 22 to 26 feet. We opted to get outside of them and fished 28 to 30-feet.
Early ice presents the opportunity to fish for fish that have not seen a jig in months.
This week I head up to Devils Lake and catch some jumbo perch on using a unique, rattling spoon.
This week on Fish Ed, I detail how and where to catch early ice bluegill and crappie
Fish Ed host Jon Thelen visits a lake near you each Monday to give you accurate, timely information on ice conditions, fishing reports, and shows you just how to catch walleyes, crappies, perch and other fish through the ice right now. If you’re going ice fishing this weekend, check Fish Ed before you drill the first hole.
