Let the ice fishing begin…January, 2014
The cold weather has finally broken allowing a foray onto the ice and snow….and there’s plenty of both. A somewhat windy Sunday produced a few lake trout for dinner that night. Jigging spoons was the only tactic we tried that day.
Fortunately for us, this nice rock cliff and nearby deep water was a good spot to fish out of the wind. Susanne holding a good eater.
Hugh (G. Rection) came along for his first N.W. Ontario ice fishing experience. While striking a good pose, Hugh is working on a new handle…”Fishless Wonder”. I’m sure Hugh will produce on our next outing. Fortunately for him, his lack of fish “catching” did not interfere with his fish “eating” abilities!
Even Mike popped in to check up on us. Likely the only one on the lake wearing a t-shirt and retro moose hide jacket for winter protection.
It was a quick trip, but it was a good test of equipment and lake conditions. Seems the trout lakes have good ice, no slush and smooth riding conditions. Eagle, shows signs of slush, so caution is advised….unless you want to walk home! Stay tuned for more ice fishing to come. Interested in ice fishing? Give me a call!
