I'm laying a combination insulation panel under the shelter. The lower ice can’t be melted, and the inside of it is very warm.

Wow, that is incredible temperature. The temperature of yesterday was -5 ℃. Here it is about -15 ° C no matter how low. There is no insulated shelter in Japan. The reason of that in North America, I think that there are a lot of people fishing in low ambient temperatures.

The pic is a snowmobile storage cabin at the lakeside that I am using. The storage cost is about $ 270 per year.
There are some places like this in this lake.

So i see smelt is a very large part of the fishing species.... Are there sny other species of fish you target? Here in michigan smelt are only in a select few bodies of water compared to the lakes available.... We have aound 10,000 lakes in michigan id imagine smelt only inhabit less that 1% of them so other species are usually the main goal

The target fish of ice fishing in Japan is almost only smelt. Actually I also want to catch trout, however, in most places the October to March is the ban fishing period. There is one place to release the ban in March, so I’d like to catch the trout there. Fishing tool which the flag stands on the ice, I was yearning, so I imported it last year. I can't wait to use them. I think Michigan is a wonderful place. My FB fishing friends also live in Michigan and enjoy ice fishing.

I know I’ve asked before, but can’t remember what you said. Do you have any bluegill or bass in the areas you fish? I know they were imported then became invasive in many lakes. Since you have panoptix now, finding them in the shallower water shouldn’t be too hard. Bluegills often stay a little off bottom so the sonar can see them.

Yes, Bass and Gill are living in my lake. And they are certified to foreign invasive creatures in Japan. But Bass fishing is very popular in the open water season as it is silent here. This lake “Hibara Lake” is one of the most popular lake of Bass fishing in Japan. Every week fishing convention is held. A lot of Bass fishing people also fish smelt in the ice season. The fishing method of smelt is very favored by Japanese people and we are crazy about it. Since we Japanese like a little change, we enjoy a slight change on the rod tip. It may be like Zen practice. I am still in training. People who can feel it are so respected as smelt fishing expert. As of now, my panoptix system can’t capture Bass and Gill. I don’t fish Bass in the open water season, because I’m crazy about Kokanee fishing. The panoptix system is also so useful for this fishing.

Niru,

Those snail shelters look like something that US anglers might have some interest in. Do you have any information or a website about them? I haven't found anything through Google.

Since there seems to be no export, I think whether it's better to ask the import agent as long as there is someone who wants to obtain it.

Pic is handmade snail shelter. Many people are hand-making it. This page shows how to make it.

Hi niru-04,
I have also been enjoying your posts and photos, well done. :)
It's neat to see how folks ice fish in other parts of the world and the species they fish for.

How thick is your ice on average?
In my province of Saskatchewan, it is usually 2 to 3 feet thick, depending on how cold our winter is and area.

Some people in SK. also eat smelt, but, all our fish come from the store, no lakes with them in it.
Most people here use frozen smelt to catch other larger fish species like, Northern Pike, burbot or lake trout.

Keep the pictures and posts coming. Good ice fishing to you.  :icefish:

An area with this lake is one of the most heavy snowfall areas in Japan, snow is piled up about 6 to 8 feet every year. However, as the temperature is not very low, the quality of the lake's ice is not good. The snow that fell on the surface of the lake is freezing. Its thickness is now about 2 feet, but it’ll be up to 4 feet.

I too enjoy your posts. I am intrigued by the blue chalk line you laid out on the last photo. Is that so you can see a measured distance?

Niru san:
I was interested to see your "snail shelter" These were common in the 1970's when I fished in Wisconsin, I have not seen them since, but I have always wanted one. Perhaps I can make one if I can find the plastic clips to secure the plastic to the hoops. My son is moving to Japan next week to teach English, so maybe he can find them for me. I know several people in Japan that fish, but I think you are the first I have seen that fishes through the ice. Is that common there?

I take a 30m tape measure on ice and use it for measure the distance from the hole.
Succeeded this time, I was able to find a place where there are many fish up to about 5 m above the bottom.

>badger132-san

Thank you. :)
I hope your son enjoy life in Japan. The story that "snail shelter"  was used also in the United States is interesting. Even in Japan it is very popular in some areas.
Garmin panoptix system is very useful. But that is not common in Japan. I may be the only one who uses it in Japan. :) :)  Because I’m very crazy for ice fishing.

Ive been hoping for a real person to take to about the panoptix.... Do you like it that much more than a regular sonar? Here it is 3 times the price of my vexilar... 580$ vs 1900$
