Over the past week, I was fortunate to be able to ice fish with family and friends on a variety of lakes and ponds ranging from Island Fall to my very own backyard. During that time, we were able to catch some truly fantastic fish, ranging from brook trout and salmon to yellow perch, large mouth bass and even a few nice Northern Pike.
After three straight days of ice fishing, we finally managed to land the largest fish of Febachery AND get the entire ordeal on camera. In the video below, my Floridian friend Karen lands her very first fish through the ice, while her husband Ronnie and I provide direction and assistance!
When pulling large, powerful fish like Northern Pike through the ice, it is important that everyone work as a team. Note in the video one person plays the fish, another manages the reel and makes sure the line doesn't become tangled and finally someone manages the hole. Without working together, I guarantee that this fish would not have been landed. *Note in the video that the hook pops out of the fishes mouth but my hands are there for the save! SWEET!
|Job Well Done! Congratulations Karen!
