13 Fishing Tickle Stick Ice Rod

$36.99

Reported by
Kail’s Fishing Reports

Medicine Lake (MN)

Kail’s Fishing Reports reported catching Panfish / Bluegill using the Ice Fishing Jigs technique and 13 Fishing Tickle Stick Ice Rod on Medicine Lake. Additional comments from this report: "First ice and Last ice is the best fishing, with the temps rising and the snow melting it is bringing oxygen and warmer water into the shallows,. Locate a shallow area and use your camera to find green weeds. Drill out the area and I have been Using My Garmin live to stay on the fish.It is better to have the holes drilled to not spook them in the shallow water. Drop down and use a bouncing action on the jig, if they don't hit right away play keep away with them by pulling away very slowly. Tip the jig with a waxie or a Maggot or a plastic. Good Luck! "

Frabill Ice Hunter Finesse Spinning Combo

$27.99

Reported by
Northern Hoosier Outdoors

Rush Lake (MN)

Northern Hoosier Outdoors reported catching Yellow Perch using the Ice Fishing Jigs technique and Frabill Ice Hunter Finesse Spinning Combo on Rush Lake. Additional comments from this report: "Got out on the hard water for probably the last time driving, that is, it was the last hoorah for the truck! Found nice perch and bluegills, but they were on the move! The night before, we had rain and a blizzard, the weather sure changes fast here in Minnesota! We originally started fishing in 13-14 feet of water, and soon found the fish were moving up into shallower depths, most of the hottest bites and larger panfish came from 5-7 feet of water. It was a 42 degree day with the barometer sitting at 30.01, the fish were extremely active, on the move, we had to hole hop to keep up with them. Once on a school, you could pull 3-5 fish from a hole and then they were on the move again! Small jigs with waxworms and Kenders K-Rips were used, all were wonderbread colored, besides the Rattlin’ Flyer spoon, that was orange and gold, however, based on their ferocity and hunger that day, I would guess that they would hit just about anything that resembled an insect or minnow or fry. Large predators were also present that day, moving the panfish around, as we saw multiple pike chase them on the Garmin Live Scope. The panfish were not hindered however, and would continue hitting after pike took breaks in between feeding. Matching the forage is key, we know that the panfish there were feeding on aquatic insects and fry, many right up under the ice, they were no longer hugging the bottom. If you’ve never ice fished shallow, especially at the end of the ice season you’re missing out, they move up to the water that is now warming at a faster rate and following the forage! Having panfish slam your lure as it passes the bottom of the ice hole is some of the most fun fishing you could experience. They’ll hit before you even see your bait clear the hole on electronics! The ice was gone just 2 weeks later. Match the hatch, follow the forage and enjoy your time on the water! Good luck out there! "
