Catch Big Pike With Brined and Dyed Bait

2020-01-12T22:45:21-08:00

By: Kim Anthony I just finished a seminar about brining and dying baits for ice fishing and tend to get the same question every time. I get asked the same question online, too. People often ask me why it’s so much better to have bait that’s brined and dyed verses using natural bait. People want [...]

Michigan/Indiana Walleye & Pike: Grabbing Live Dyed Minnows

2018-04-18T18:58:04-07:00

By: Todd Hatfield While I wait for our summer steelhead run to evolve we’ve been spending a lot of time chasing large northern pike and walleye in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. Almost every lakefront spot, marina, harbor and river in the region has a population of pike, and many have walleye, too. This time [...]

Last Chance for Pike in Northern Ontario

2018-04-18T18:58:52-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer Northern Ontario is littered with some of the best fishing in North America. With that in mind it didn’t take much convincing for us to fly north and spend a three-day weekend targeting burbot, brook trout and splake in hopes of filming Pautzke Outdoors. With good weather on hand doing so wasn’t [...]

Fire Dye Suckers – Boosting Action on Ontario Ice

2019-10-31T08:53:17-07:00

By: Tom Armstrong After being introduced to Pautzke's Fire Dye last winter when brook trout fishing, (https://youtu.be/XSt7YeHxFjY) it’s become something I use every time I’m on the ice. Most recently we used it in Northern Ontario for walleye and burbot. It’s a cool product that adds intense colour to your bait, increasing the baits reflective [...]

Colorful Fire Brine Smelt Catching Montana Pike

2019-10-31T08:52:31-07:00

By: Chris Shaffer We shipped roughly 33,000 bottles of Fire Brine to the Northwest last year. Fire Brine is a mainstay in every account in the region, but it hasn’t been in Montana. I had no idea that was set to change until we received a random email from Central Montana wheat farmer Kim Anthony. [...]

Use Brined & Colored Smelt: For Big Pike

2019-10-31T08:52:31-07:00

By: Kim Anthony Ice fishing for pike is a favorite pastime for many of us and one of our best baits is frozen smelt. In fact, for years that’s all I used. However, when you look at smelt in a package they are super boring. They look like a can of tuna fish. To me [...]

Great Lakes Pike Hammering Fire Dye & Fire Brine Live and Dead Bait

2019-10-31T08:52:30-07:00

By: Kyle Deavers Due to late arriving ice Saturday was the first time I’d ice fished for pike this year. Meanwhile, upon arrival there were so many people already fishing I was contemplating heading back to the harbor to fish for browns and steelhead. Upon arrival we noticed more than 100 anglers already set up [...]
