How to catch salmon and trout while icefishing
« on: Feb 14, 2007, 10:48 AM »
hello, i have been icefishing for many year i have cought pickeral bass perch crappie and few other things.. i can catch trout in spring very easy while fishing open water but never seem to catch one while icefishing.....i also have another question?? last weekend i was icefishing and the flag would go up and i would get to it and the whole spool of line was almost gone.. then i go to pull it in i would lose it.... but during that day i had about 20 other flags did not run far and got them what kind of fish you think is taking all my line.

Ok set your tip-ups up with a 4 foot monofiliment leader and a size 8 treble hook. Next put a very tiny split shot about a foot above the hook. Set your bait 1-4 feet below the ice.

as for your spool of line almost taken out, do you have any pickerel in that lake?

:(went icefishing on Saturday and i had 2 flags that took most of my line off the spool.. When the fish stopped i pulled and was gone both times both times the shiner came back chewed up and weeds on it what kind of fish is doing this?? I plan on going to that same spot this weekend and i really want to catch the fish that is doing this.

Sounds like pickerel. They are know to grab, run and wrap around weeds.

Why are you letting them stop running? If they are running good give it to them!
If fishing was work I'd never be sick!

I like heavy leaders, 12 pound flouro carbon.  It's tough enough to land large toothy critters like picks and pike, and strong enough to haul in a running salmon.  I would hate to loose a fish to a broken leader, especially a big salmon.
