Episode 41: Lots of Fish and our First Guest

This week JJ and Josh talk about there most recent fishing trip.  They caught mostly perch and it was snowing hard.   Their first guest went fishing with them and they discussed the fishing trip.

Tips

Sometimes if you lose a fish as your lifting it up out of the hole, you can grab it before it swims away because the fish doesn’t know where it is.

Episode 38: Ice-fishing books and excellent tips

Some ice-fishing book that we liked are:

Ice fishing : a complete guide, basic to advanced / by Jim Capossela

Modern methods of ice fishing / by Tom Gruenwald

Hooked on ice fishing / by Tom Gruenwald

Hooked on ice fishing II : panfish / by Tom Gruenwald

Hooked on ice fishing III : gamefish / by Tom Gruenwald

TIPS

1. Keeping some slush in the hole may improve your success because it blocks some of the light that might enter through the hole.

2. If your trying to find a drop off or just some fish, you can do it without drilling a hole all the way through the ice.  Here’s how you can do it: Drill a hole about 2-3 inches into the ice and fill it with water.  Put your transducer in the partly drilled hole and you can see the structure on your screen.  Although the depth won’t be exact you can still find drop offs etc.
