Just want to welcome all you newbies out there ;D This is the greatest ice fishing site bar none. You can interact with people from allover the world and share info, tips and techniques and more. I encourage you all to really dive into the different areas and don't be afraid to post. Some of our members with the most knowledge will not always be the high posters unless the have been around this site for awhile. You need at least 5 posts to be able to view the fishing conditons and some other areas on here.

Again welcome aboard "Team Alaska" >:D share, learn and most of all have fun ;D

Tinman here, just checking in. I've been fishing Alaska waters for the past 17 years, saltwater, freshwater, and hard water. One of these days I might get some of it figured out.

I heard my fishin buddy Rdrash posted some pics from a little earlier in the year, expect more to follow. Seems he forgot to post any of my "bonafieds" (guess he's just jealous I'm leading our little char race)

We're off to Nancy lake again in the morning, it's a fun little derby that runs through the 28th of Feb. You guys should come out and give a go. You can tape the Super Bowl, besides, isn't a screaming drag washer and tight line more fun?

Howdy,
    Born and raised here in Alaska but ice fished for the first time two weeks ago.  In the past two weeks been to Knik lake 4 times, Finger lake once and Big lake once.  So far we have two 6" rainbows to show for it >:(, but we are not giving up, we love it ;D.  Ran across this site searching the net, lots of info here, great site.

I Love it when the Lakes get Iced up. I'm 31, Borne and raised in alaska, grew up in the valley and fish the area as much as I can. I have a wife and 4 kids. I was hoping for a big fish pic to post with this but I got skunked for the first time this year last weekend so attached to this is the biggest bow I've caught it was 28 inches I'm looking for the bow that breaks the 30 mark but it has eluded me so far

Hey hard water people. I'm in the Air Force and got stationed up here last June.  I really like ice fishing. Been at it for about three years now.  Made my start on the Utah lakes. Been hovering on your posts and finally decided to to chime in. Really love the outdoors.  Been trying out a lot of the Alaskan lakes this winter.  Got lots of questions for you guys. I rarely keep any - I should take more pics cause the wife doesn't always believe me.

Looking forward to your posts.

Hey, my name is greg & I have to admit being originally from MN & ice fishing on mile lacs I never gave it a chance up here. Been here over 8 yrs & haven't caught anything through the ice up here.
 Well my other half really wants to catch pike & burbout this winter so hopefully I can change our luck.  I am really looking forward to the M&G so hopefully it will happen & I can learn what gear & tackle we need.

My name is Patrick and I live in Anchorage, spend almost every weekend ice fishing. Mostly local lakes like sand lake, cambpell point and mirror lake. Also fish the kepler bradley lakes, Matanuska lake and big lake. I finally got a power auger for this year and can't wait to try it out. No more drilling 3-4 holes 3-4 feet deep with a hand auger for me. My best fish ice fishing is a 28" and seven pound char from one of the stocked lakes. It was an old battle scarred fish that I just couldn't kill. It is still swimming around and maybe I will catch it bigger this year. I will be ready with my camera this year. Good luck to all!

my name is john and i live in eagle river. have done a little ice fishing in the past but plan to do alot more this year. i aquired alot of lead last year and started to pour my own jigs for saltwater but since summer is over i have switched and started to buy molds for ice fishing. i am open to suggestions as to what works for you guys, currently i have a 1 oz and 1 1/2 oz shad head, a reg roundhead , eirie jig, flat head and banana head mold. i use powder coating for the jigs and attatch skirts, grubs and so on.  so just waiting for fishable ice to get started. plan on spending most my time this year on big lake. maybe a few trips to hidden and lake louise. good luck to all and have a safe season.

Hello forum,
My name is Nick and I live in North Pole. I am new to this site after hearing of it on the Alaska Outdoor Forum and am a avid ice fisherman. I am stationed on Ft.Wainwright and have been here since December 2000. I like to build Ice shacks and if I could I would build one for every lake. Im open for any suggestions all the time and will put my 2 cents in any time I can. thanks and I look forward to talking to you all.

Hello,
My name is Tony and I live in Chugiak. I am stationed at Ft Rich. I've been here since June 05 with a recent trip to the sandbox causing me to miss last winter. The year before I was introduced to ice fishing by a friend at work and became addicted. I enjoy trips to Lake Louise when I have the time. My best fish to date is a 37" laker caught in the winter of 2005. I took my 5 year old to Mirror lake on turkey day and today and had a blast catching land-locked salmon and an occasional 12-13" rainbow. Right now there is 5-6" of ice. I look forward to meeting some of you guys on the ice.

Hi Brad -

Did you have that fish aged?  I would bet it was over 20 years of age.  What lure did you catch it on?  That's a tremendous Lake trout, congratulations.

-Tim




Welcome Frank AK, glad to see your not shy. Great job on the Laker, where did you catch him/her? I caught a 28lb laker last year and hope to do that good again this year. Although we will not probably take that category thanks to those hardwater nuts in BC. They have the length down there and that's what wins the tourney, while we have the girth which is what matters for most of us.

Welcome aboard and have fun, you will find a wealth of knowledge here in our area as well as IS itself.

Brad

hello fellow ice fishermen,and women! my name is Steve. I recently moved here from Idaho where I love to fish. Ice fishing is great, the people are great most of the time, and it fills the time till the rivers and lakes open. I've ice fished for a long time, but I'm new to alaska and I'm trying to figure it out up here in this great state. Got a new auger and ice house for alaska and my vexlar is on it's way up, with my underwater camera. haven't got a snowmachine yet, but I'm working on it so as soon as the ice permits, I'll be out trying to catch something. This site is great, with a lot of valuable info As soon as I get out, I'll try to get a report.

My name is Bob I'm 37 and lived in Alaska for 34 years. I've been an avid fisherman for most of them (in the summer).  last year showed some intrest in ice fishing. The wife playing the part of Santa went out and purchased an Eskimo Grand Caravan along with the hitch to tow behind my four wheeler. I went out shortly after and bought a gas powered auger, (father in law said I'd use a hand auger one time and throw it away GO WITH GAS) a few fishing poles, lures and very important the little buddy heater. So as I said I'm a sumer guy I know a lot about that kind of fishing not so much about the hard water. So I will be searching for all the info I can to make my fishing experience more easier and more productive.
