We have had a roller coaster of weather over the past ten days. Temps have varied from 30 below to 35 above. We have had brutal weather the last two days. Wind, cold, and blowing snow has kept most anglers off the ice. The decision to purchase a SnoBear has proven to be a wise investment. We were able to fish right through a blizzard with 40 mph gusts and all of our clients were warm and comfortable, we even managed to catch fish!!

As for the bite, it has been really up and down. The perch are pretty good one day and spotty the next. Seems like they are going most consistently in that 20-30 ft of water. We have caught them mixed in with the walleyes. Buckshots, forage minnows, and lindy flyers tipped with a minnow head have been the best. Best bite for walleyes has been in 12-30 ft of water. Seems like there are walleyes all over, with lots of classes of fish (anywhere from 8-18 inches is the norm). Buckshot with a minnow head seems to trigger the most bites. We have caught pike mixed in with the walleyes. The weather looks to be warming up a bit later this week and hopefully we will have more stable weather….

If you would like to experience a unique ice fishing trip, give us a call, the SnoBear is an absolute DREAM to fish out of. We can pick up and move in a matter of seconds. There are days we move 20-30 times. The idea is simple, when the fish stop biting, we move until we find fish that want to!
