Tip of the Day



MN guide Jason Durham:


> “If you do not see the bait, keep drilling holes and checking until you find it. As soon as you see the bait, look for some structural element nearby.”


> …can be something as subtle as a bottom transition from sand to mud or as obvious as a rockpile. Other structure can be a point, a saddle or the deep edge of the weeds. “Most of the fish will be found on these areas in 16 to 20 feet of water in clear lakes, and a little shallower in dingy water lakes, maybe more like 12 feet.”


> …some of his biggest fish of the year come right out of the deep weeds at first ice. “Turn down the gain on your depthfinder so you don’t get as much clutter from the weeds. You’ll find lots of bait in the cabbage because the oxygen levels are high, which attracts all fish.”


> Jason often tips his jigging spoon with a minnow and drops it to the bottom. “I like a lively minnow that is struggling right on the bottom. After all, we fish right on the bottom during the summer, but it seems like ice fishermen want to fish way off the bottom all the time.”

Quote of the Day


You should never be too comfortable on the ice.


– From an article about ice safety…but tell that to whoever built this!
