Catfish through the ICE!
« on: Feb 12, 2018, 11:46 AM »
A few friends and I decided to try our hand at something we've never done before - targeting Channel Catfish through the ice. This definitely proved to be a bit of a challenge and took me out of my comfort zone. After getting a few bites and fish up the hole we started to figure out a method that worked for us. I don't feel like it's the most productive way to catch these fish but it worked out for us that day. At the end of the day everyone in our group caught quite a few fish, had their rods doubled over and left with smiles on our faces. These fish put up a heck of a fight on Walleye gear! I will definitely try to get back up there this season.

Nice fish guys

Thanks man, we made the 1.5 hour drive to try something new and it paid off. Now I'm looking at the calendar trying to figure out how we can get back there before the ice gets dicey later this season.

Yeah, I understand the ice goes pretty quick on this Chain of Lakes due to the current, pinch points, etc.

It's always best to play it safe when there is current!
