Ice Fishing Blog

In Blog by Pete's Tackle Shop

The first Flathead Valley ice fishing blog of the season. Well folks first ice is here now be safe on that new ice take a spud bar out and your safety pic and maybe even a life jacket. Now take that from a hypocrite I was so excited to fish first ice that i did none of the above Sorry for not being a better role model, But on my defense I went out and purchased a new Striker Hard Water Ice Suit Now it floats.

Now about ice fishing, catching was slow but the fishing was great. I went out with a few guys the best catches I saw was two guys had a dozen perch in a pile my partner got four Perch through the hole and lost a big toad at the top of the whole . Me I got a eleven inch Jumbo Perch and two small Northern Pike. I probably would have done better if I had my safety gear and the Misery factor with the weather would of been better snow , wind , cold ie.

It is Wednesday and we went out and caught some Nice Jumbo Perch and Northern Pike it was a lot better fishing today we caught 5 Jumbo Perch. and a bunch of small Northern Pike Ice fishing is off to a great start and if this keeps up I feel it will be a banner ice fishing year.
