Another day on the ice.
« on: Dec 22, 2010, 06:11 PM »
I got out yesterday for a little 80km sled ride and I made it out for a few hours again today for some fishin'.   ;D
Temps were pretty decent at -16 with light winds.
I ended up trying a couple of new spots today (there were interlopers fishing last weeks spot)   :nono:



All was not lost though as there is plenty of room for all.    ;)2
I set up about 200-300 yards away on another point and managed one 3 to 4 pound pike there. Then the action slowed so I moved to another point further up the lake and managed a couple of 3 to 3 1/2 pound whities there. I lost a couple and missed a few as well. All in all not a bad day.













Tomorrow will be gear cleaning and thawing day so all is ready for Friday's outing.    :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I'll probably still get out fer a little sleddin' though.    :P

Drifter those are some nice whitefish indeed.  What do YOU do with them?  Kind of curious since most folks over here don't like them, but I sure like them smoked!

What did youy catch those whites on.  I see the minnow but I cann't tell what the green thing is.  Those are some nice looking fish.
I was born an Alaskan I just didn't live here at the time.

If I tell ya, I gotta kill ya!!!!    ;D

It's a jig called a Bad Boyz Jig, made in Ontario.
I think the Lindy Slick Jigs will work just as well.
I tip them with a crappie tube and minnow.
They will hit them without the minnow but the minnow helps when they are being finicky.     ;)2

I think meat for meat would be a fair trade.  I was thinking moose meat and maybe a sandhill crane.

A couple of Moose steaks to BBQ up at Ditofak's cabin on LL would be nice.   ;)2
I can even show you how those whitefish work.   ;D

More great pics, I check NWT thread regularly just to see if Drifter has posted new pics or stories, the icefishing camping one was great. I think you have a small following going, Im from all the way down in Pennsylvania, 20 inches of ice is a lot to me drilling through 38 inches is crazy.

I haven't been out in 3 weeks as the temps have been in the -30 to -40 range.   :'(
The ice is probably in the 40" - 45" range by now.   ;D
