    Ice fishing

    Like it or not, December is a couple days away. Lakes up here have frozen over, so it won't be long before they're thick enough to walk on. I've been an avid summer fisherman, but only ice fish a few times a winter, and that's trout fishing with my dad.

    Does anybody have any good ice fishing tips for walleye and northern? Trout is cake (if you can find them), but I've never actually set up for either of the pikes.

    Can't wait to get out there with coffee and bailey's, and catch me a big ole fish.

    Live bait and tip-ups. Not sure where you mean by "up here" but I learned to ice fish when I lived in Minnesota for a few years. Also, if it's sunny out wear something to protect your eyes. I found out about that the hard way.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    True that. Up here = north of the Twin Cities.
