Well were to start,, lots of options...

Get some tip-ups, or heavier icefishing rods can jig...

Have you ever icefished before?? Where do you plan to go???

Ive caught pike jigging and on tip ups, both works..

Northern dave is a guru of icefishing in the great white north maybe he can chime in...

Plain frozen smelt, rigged with a single hook to suspend horizontally, works almost as well, but the best kept secret is whole frankfurters rigged the same! smile

We use suckers on a tipup, placed about eight inches off the bottom, near a drop off into deeper water. We also use whiskey and a cribbage board.

I love drunken hand to hand combat with the water wolf.

There's a story.

My late best friend/cousin and I created the story for the kids many years ago.

The original water wolf resides in lake of the woods MN.

He's old, he's obviously huge and boy he's mean.

If you have ever fished lake of the woods over on the south west side near warroad mn you would have likely heard the train ripping through town. it comes down from Canada on the west side of the lake then curves to the east & follows along for many miles to the east.

When it blows through town the whistle sounds very loud all the way through town and as it crosses the bridge for the warroad river that spills into the lake.

When the train comes through town and sounds the whistle you can sometimes spot the water wolf sticking his head up through an old ice fishing hole. he howls at the Canadian train as it blows through town rumbling across that old iron bridge.

He's so old he doesn't even grow teeth any more. He uses fish hooks for teeth, he's constantly spooling out tip ups & fishing reels as he steals new fish hooks to use for teeth.

When you get spooled or snap a line on lake of the woods, it's the water wolf taking your hook to use for a tooth.

you don't catch the water wolf, he catches you.

Northern Dave, how far north in MN are you? I moved to Montevideo in July and would love to get into some quality ice-fishing for the wolf, other than running back across the border to SD to known honey holes. Where you at?

dark shack, big hole, white/red pike decoy and a good spear are required.
nice little wood stove and a 6 pack of PBR are the essential options. Makes me homesick just thinking about it.

it was a long snowmobile ride through a lot of state forest to get home at the end of the day.
Used to pour a couple cans of corn in the hole, they'd line the bottom and make it easier to see fish cruising by. Always had a jig pole and some wax worms for perch.

In my parts we use cisco, smelt (both dead frozen baits) or live sucker minnows anywhere up to 10" long.

it's damn near time too.

we use to use wooden decoys on a jerk string for spearing. use to hang them about 18" below the ice. some times we'd use live suckers as well.

gold fish would be illegal but I damn sure bet it would work. Chicken liver? Well... that might work but you'd be more likely to catch a mess of fat eelpout on that kind of rig and we get enough of them on our other dead baits the way it is.

We target them in early Spring up here. A few of them reach 20 pounds or better. Biggest one in this picture is around ten.

[Linked Image]

Fish from ten to a hundred feet of water, occasionally deeper. Bright spoons worked two to three feet off sand or gravel bottoms, and plastic jigs fished just inches from the bottom do the trick quite nicely.

They are a delicious eating fish, but do not keep well unless frozen, totally immersed in water, and ice cream buckets work good for that.

They get targeted here too, but usually with cut bait...five pounds is a big one here...

If you're fixin' to put a hole in something,
make it a hole to remember.

I hope that remark doesn't mean you've switched from a leopard-print to a sheer thong.

Dave - what's with the new regs on using smelt in MN? Is it just me or is it a load of dung?

According to new regs, we can't use frozen smelt or ciscoes unless they have been processed by a bait dealer that has processed them to eliminate VHS. http://news.dnr.state.mn.us/index.p...d-smelt-used-for-bait-must-be-preserved/

I think it's a load of dung and would LOVE to know what special process they are using to kill the virus. I understand not wanting it to spread, but how hard is it going to be to find smelt this year for northerns?
