    I’ve never been ice fishing. Would be awesome to give it a try sometime when I get brave enough.

    Unless you want to wander out on your own, which I strongly don’t suggest, you go to a place that organizes it from the shore. They haul you out to their huts via Bombardier or snowmobile and pick you up later in the day. It’s push-button fishing really, which I have little interest in insofar as fishing. It’s all about the fun of it. Bring a six-pack for the fun part of it.

    Just don’t be the first, let others drive their pickup onto the ice first, then you know it’s probably safe to walk on. 😀

    For us southerners :), a jack is a northern pike. Those 4lb’rs had to taste sweet as candy. I prefer northern over walleye as they have more flavor. Good for you Brad! Exciting to pull a big one out like that.

    Interesting you are not the first one I know who prefers pike. I prefer Walleye since I can fillet to remove all bones easily, can’t do it with pike.

    Also I get the feeling that for the same sized fish you get more head and less meat from pikes, never actually compared though.

    Thanks for the translation Lon. I have not heard them called anything but Northern. I haven’t had it in many years not, but do remember liking the northern better myself.

    Wow 18″ of ice is some thick ice. The 18lb fish is not bad either.

    Guess out your way is has been cold enough, long enough to get 18″ of ice. Maybe in northern Ontario they are getting ice that thick.

    18lb is a nice size, Brad.. Do you cook from fresh or smoke your catch?

    Funny, most guys around here prefer pickerel (walleye in SK) Which is funny because a pickerel is closer related to the northern pike (musky actually) but that’s what the locals have called them for years.

    Suager and Walleye are YUMMY.

    We actually call pike slough snakes. They live just about anywhere and are very invasive. The only time I like to eat them is if they are from COLD water. They taste GREAT.

    As for cooking, it’s flour S&P and in the frying pan with lots of butter… Doesn’t get better IMHO

    You all are funny!
    We went to lake Erie the first time and had no ice shanty. We carried our gear in a 5 gal bucket. It was really cold and the wind was blowing hard. We had walked a couple miles and not caught anything. Got up to try another spot and as soon as we stood up our buckets took off in the wind. We never saw them again!

    A ice shack or portable shelter is a must for me. I do not own one as I do not do a ton of ice fishing. I have a lot of buddies with them and it is the only way to go. Once the heater is running you are down to jeans and a t-shirt.
    The gas powered auger is the way to go. Trying to drill 8 inches of ice is way to much work for me.

    Doesn’t the heater or fire inside the ice shack melt the ice??

    #455703

    It doesn’t get that hot Dirty. These are propane heaters which are heating the air and are not directly heating the ice. The heat rises so it can be pretty warm up high and still very cold down below. I don’t know anybody who has a fire going inside their ice shanty or pop-up shanty. That could be dangerous from a fire standpoint or carbon monoxide issues.

    Here’s a visual for you DWB. The huts are on 4 x 4’s with UHMW runners to keep them directly off the ice and allow easy towing with a truck or skidoo. Wood stoves are common.

    You can see the gas auger beside the hut, necessary when the ice gets to 3 or 4′ thick.

    BE the change you want to see.

    Nothing like cold water fresh lake fish. I still remember the local Friday fish frys in the 60s with Great Lake fish freshly caught.
