Northwest Ontario Ice Good for Walleye & Trout

By: Tom Armstrong Cold temperatures and major snowfalls have winter in full force in Northwestern Ontario. As our lakes frozen early the region is covered in a layer of snow and ice. In fact, some anglers were drilling holes as early as November! Almost all area lakes are fishable through the ice. Many are even [...]

Steelies & Browns On Tap in Southeast Wisconsin

By: Kyle Deavers In Southeast Wisconsin this has been one of the better ice fishing seasons we’ve had catching brown trout in many years. Recently some steelhead have started to show too.

Splake Showing Now Through Ontario Ice

By: Tom Armstrong The Chartreuse Fire Dye minnow was practically glowing on the tube jig as I dropped it down beneath the ice in search of an aggressive splake. Cameras were rolling inches from my face as we attempted to film Pautzke Outdoors on a remote Northern Ontario lake. I was jigging the bait about [...]

Big Milwaukee Browns Showing Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer I was prepared to wait. Wait for hours. That’s hours standing on 12 inches of ice and in single digit temperatures while watching our 12 Automatic Fisherman’s waiting for one to spring up.

Browns Showing For Wisconsin Ice Anglers

By: Kyle Deavers Despite low numbers of stocking brown trout by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources in recent years we’ve had a surprisingly good first half of our ice fishing season.

Montana’s Tiber Lake Still Producing Fish Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer At this same time last year I was boarding a plane and film Pautzke Outdoors in Northern Montana when Kim Anthony of Ice Fishing Montana called me and told me to stay home. The ice was unsafe, if not gone, she said. Meanwhile, this year is much different. While we filmed on [...]

Alaska’s Mat-Su Valley Producing Big Ice Bows

By: Chris Shaffer To be honest I wanted to stay in the hotel and sleep in. I’m more of a fair weather angler and after guide Dustin Slinker of The Bait Shack in Anchorage, Alaska, told me he expects us to get three bites in a half day, I wasn’t excited about fishing. Unfortunately, with [...]
