Walleyes On The Rebound
Have you been looking for a while to put a few more of those big walleyes that you see coming through on the ice? If your answer is what I think it is, I would suggest you keep reading. This article discusses ice-fishing jigging techniques and method of catching walleyes that get off your line after fighting them for a bit. I refer to this method as "catching them on the rebound"...

Turning On Negative Panfish
If you're an avid ice fisherman, no doubt you've encountered negative panfish. Bluegills and crappies that you can mark on your electronics, but can't for the life of you get them to bite!...

This statement just doesn’t make sense, on the surface. Particularly coming from a guy who is deeply committed to aggressive tactics while on the ice. I’m an Ice Team "Powerstick" and will tout the virtues of Dave Genz’s proven philosophy of mobility on hard water as long as anyone will listen. Except when that big orange ball in the west starts lowering itself to near tree top level and I’ve had my fill of Perch...

Red Lake Crappie Call
Red Lake holds some of the best crappie action I have ever seen. However, the lake is a very large body of water with little in the way of structure. For this reason, there is no way to point to a spot on the map and say "here is a spot where they will be"...

Eelpout Fishing - Minnesota Lobster
I can remember the first Eelpout I saw - it was late into the evening and the rattle reel was moving ever so slowly. I set the hook and began yelling to my sleeping fishing partner," Got a big Eelpout on - get up and give me a hand with this big bad boy!" After rolling out of bed, Jerry walked over to the hole - looked down at the fish swimming under the ice and said " cut the line!"...

I’m not talking about the quality of the ice itself but the about your opportunity to enjoy some of the best fishing of the hard water season. Once the calendar roles around to late February or early March a lot of the enthusiasm for ice fishing has waned. Just as you begin to notice less and less anglers out, all species of fish activity will be increasing proportionally...

Ice Fishing - Late Ice and Going for it!
Everyone would love to catch more fish during late ice. Ice anglers seem to fall into a more relaxed routine when they head out onto the ice this time of the year. They may catch a few fish but once they stop catching fish, it is blamed on the fish - "they just stopped biting". My personal favorite is "fish stop eating late ice". This is just not a fact!...

In my neck of the woods (Northeastern South Dakota) I consider late ice, to be the period from mid February until you can no longer safely venture out.  By this stage in the game most of the enthusiasm for drilling holes has greatly diminished.  This is due to the fact that the bite has probably been tough for sometime and most folks are getting a little burned out.  As the days get longer, thoughts start turning to open water, reorganizing tackle and attending Sport Shows...

Ice Fishing With Rattle Reels
I love to ice fish - and spend alot of nights sleeping in the house with one ear open waiting for the sound of a large fish taking out line. Rattle reel fishing is not new and is not the most productive way to catch fish on ice. That being said - this form of fishing is the most used in fish houses today. Maybe it is because you can spend time doing other things, like sleeping, and still have the opportunity to catch fish...

If you haven’t kept up with the latest innovations, I think you’ll be truly amazed at just how comfortable and enjoyable this sport can be.   The days of being hunched over a five gallon pail, hoping to catch a fish, before frost bite sets in are long gone...

Ice Fishing Basics
Well the lakes in Minnesota are going to freeze over, it's imminent. Whether people like it or not, fishing can only be done through the ice on the 10,000 plus lakes in Minnesota this Winter. A lot of people I know simply love to ice fish, while others can't wait for the ice to melt. I always ask those of the latter why they don't ice fish, the number one response I get is, "It's dangerous." Well I'd like to help get those people on the ice this year by telling them what they need to get started, and also some precautions they can take to feel and be more safe this Winter...

Deer Stand Walleye Fishing - Part II - Late Ice
This article is an extension of what we discussed in Part 1. I like to call this time of the year REAL hard ice. It is when the ice gets past 2 feet thick and -50 is not uncommon. This is when you need to change how you go after old marble eyes. Walleye begin to move into a different pattern this time of the year and the three main steps for hunting them down like you would a deer also changes...

Deer Stand Walleye Fishing
Ice fishing is much like deer hunting from a stand. In order to be successful you must be in the best place at the correct time using the right gear or you are just not going to do very well. Knowledge of the fish you plan to take is also a very important when still fishing on ice. I know of no deer hunter who would go to the woods and set up next to a group of other hunters. There are just to many things that can spook off a deer or walleye for that matter...
