ICE FISHING >>
Between running guided ice fishing trips and tournament fishing, winter is by far my busiest season.
Once the harbors of Lake Michigan freeze over, I start running trips for world class brown trout and steelhead. I utilize a number of different devices to put the odd of landing a fish of a lifetime in your favor. In addition to jigging, I use Automatic Fisherman, Clam Artic Warriors, tip ups and Vexilar flashers.
During your trip I will explain how to use all of the gear and how to read the Vexilar. I will also go over how to effectively use jigging spoos, rippin' raps and other various jigs.
When the inland lakes freeze over and are safe for travel, I start making them look like swiss cheese with my Strikemaster Lazer Mag in search of bluegills, crappies and northern pike.
For bluegills and crappies I run a different number of jigging rods with a Vexilar flashers. During a trip I will explain what I am looking for with my Navionics maps, how to read a Vexilar and how to properly present your bait.
To fill in the voids when I'm not guiding I partake in the North American Ice Fishing Circuit. This series is held in multiple states across the Midwest.
