ICE FISHING / and yet another day on the ice
« Last post by psycho_trout on Today at 12:14:45 AM »
well went back out this evening. didnt get as many as yesterday but still did pretty good. threw back all the gills today. kept 4 crappies and 2 big perch. the perch are on thier prespawn feed not, slammin the spoons before i can even close the bait as its dropping down! but as soon as the sun went down and it got dark the bite shut off. the moon was up early and its bright so the bite slows way down. i might going tomorrow and/or sunday evenings too. it all depends on the wings and sun/moon brightness.

Try jigging for smelt near the causeway. They taste way better than trout.

They make great bait for the trout too..and legal!! When I would get into them, it was one for me and one for the tip ups...caught fish up tp 11 lbs. there on them when the smelt were in there in good numbers.

Someone posts a big fish on iceshanty and that place is gunna get mobbed lol

I was planning on going there Sat. morning anyways, but I saw that picture on shanty and I was thinking the same thing.

Do you guys have any suggestions for hook type/size for my tip ups for browns? Thanks

Gino, I use about a 6' leader of 8 lb. flouro at the end of my dacron. I like small trebles and use number 10's or even 12's. I stagger my depths that I set the bait at...from 10' below the ice to about 10' above the bottom. Don't know about anyone else, but this has worked for me for 30 years of fishing for them.
Good luck tomorrow!
