SPAZ Plastic Trial For Brookies and Bows

Here's the description:
How To Ice Fishing for Big Stocked Rainbow Trout and Brook Trout on Mid Lake Island Structure.  If you do not know the underwater structure look at the surrounding shoreline to gain clues about what might be below the ice.  You want to find slower slopes, weedy flats and slow transition areas to deeper water.  If you find these areas you will find typical feeding areas.  It doesn't mean fish will always be there, but you are putting yourself in a high probability location.  Then just drill enough holes so you can find the so called SPOT ON THE SPOT.  This phenomenon is not always obvious as from one hole to the next there won't be much difference.  For some reason fish come into the one hole 90% more than another.  These are the areas you are searching for by bunching more grid like patterns over structure and hopping around from hole to hole with a lure and sonar.

Once in place drop a line and see what happens.  Certain areas will have more of the small fish.  They avoid the larger fish sometimes and eat smaller prey items.  The big fish will feed heavily on scuds, beetles, damsels and caddis through the winter.  They will also eat minnows if they are present in the lake.  So give flashy spoons a try to see if they work.

So many options.  Tungsten jigs are always a great choice since they size profile and feel is amazing for what most aquatic insect eating trout want.

The Rods used in the video is a PANFISH 36 and a DEAD 36, both excellent 36 inch rods for a variety of species.

If you have any other questions be sure to leave a comment below and I'll get right back to you.

Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoy my little fishing adventures.
