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.
