Ice fishing shows!

Recommended Posts

Watching these ice fishing shows really makes me anxious for the ice fishing season! I am also glad that In Fishermen has a show totally dedicated to ice fishing! Is everyone excited as I am?

Bring on the ice!

I agree! And even though I dont like Vexilar I think they really produce a quality show and I am actually learning something from each show. I think the In-Fisherman show is more just catching fish and its really nothing new as to how they are doing it. I enjoyed watching Dave Genz on Ice Fishing Today this week. I thought he did a great segment.

I love watching all of the Internet extras on the ice fishing today HSOforum. The one with Cory Bechtold fishing artificial lures was great.

I also noticed that IDO has their Ice Fishing show back on. Saw it today on FSN North at 8:00. All three keep me from going bonkers. I can't wait until I can get out and not watch others fishing though.

Just checked out Vexilar's Ice Fishing Today HSOforum. For anyone new or newer to Ice fishing, this is a must visit HSOforum. You can watch the shows that were televised and a bunch of additional extras not on the TV show. IMHO Of all the shows/websites, this one is the best I have found for providing video information on ice fishing. They cover a lot of detailed how to's and focus on education - not just watching guys catch a bunch of fish.

I am normally 99% catch and release guy ... after watching the fish fry extra on fileting/cleaning sunnies, I will definitley keeping more panfish for the frying pan (makes me hungry just thinking about it).

    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂
