My 2022 Ice Fishing Season Rollup
« on: Mar 26, 2022, 10:16 AM »



What a fantastic 2021/22 Ice Fishing Season this has been. This is my 2nd solid season of doing this. Four in total, but you really can't count 8 times the first year and 14 times the second year. But this year, I was on the ice over 50 times and a bucket list item under the belt, Winter Camping on the lake. I made some new friends this year and met up with some old friends. I love targeting the pan fish, mainly the Bluegills with some Crappies thrown in. They are so much fun to search out and stay on top of. This year was strictly plastics. No live bait was used this year at all. I'm going to miss the ice fishing as the shorelines continues to melt away. I guess another 9 months until next season kicks off.....

Welcome to a sport that is enjoyed by so many.  It sure beats sitting indoors all winter and the fish are a bonus.  If I may offer some advice, I would take along a few waxies or spikes with me when I go, for those days when the gills are tight lipped.  Yes, plastics work most of the time, but once in a while you can save a trip by offering natural bait.  I find a small pill bottle full of them is easily carried and could make the difference on slow days.  And, I would go as light as possible, when you can, being able to move easily makes it more fun, and I seem to catch more when I move around.    The great thing about ice fishing is that you can tailor it to "your" liking.  It sounds like your well on your way to becoming an avid winter angler, enjoy!
