Ice fishing on Pigeon Lake Alberta, January 2008. Music by Eric Bibb.
Floating the Lower Bow River can be some of the best trout fishing anywhere!!!!
Trolling for walleye with a spinner rig and night crawler on the downrigger and underwater GoPro Hero. It proved difficult to entice a bite so close to the camera housing and canon ball but two walleye were brave enough to take the worm on camera. The water was a bit murky but you can still see what is going on as the walleye move in and hit the spinner rig with trailing night crawler in 20 feet of water. I'll be trying to get more footage of walleye... I'll just have to find some clear water and crazy walleye action.

The underwater GoPro Hero inline does it again capturing some more fast action hits. This time with a Thomas Buoyant Colorado spoon. These fish are fast and they mean business! The fish attacked so fast that I slowed down the strikes so you can actually see what is happening. This was filmed one evening so the lighting isn't quite as good as the last video but still a great watch! Big Beautiful Rainbow Trout with a Killer Instinct!
For the angler who always has to throw the last cast and stay out just 5 minutes longer on the ice, this vid is for you! I'm one of those people who just can't be pulled away from trying just a little longer. Seems I've been rewarded so often for putting in that extra hour at the end of the day I just feel like it is a must to stay out and bare the cold and dark to catch another fish. This night was no other, already had a few smaller walleye on the line earlier in the night and as things started to get too dark to see a whole lot a nice fat mark moved in on my MarCum VX 1P and closed in on my slender spoon. I gave it a little flutter and that was all it took the fish inhaled the bait and the fight was on. After a nice battle with the walleye on a light action rod he surfaced through the hole in the ice and posed nicely for a picture before diving back into the water for another day. Don't go in to early, you might just miss the best bite of the day!

Out Ice fishing Spring Walleye and my Crazy Brother felt a little over dressed for the weather. It was a beautiful day and we were hauling up some beautiful walleye on the Slender Spoon with the help of a MarCum. Some of the pictures were posted in an earlier post from this day on the water. Saw people moving around all day which usually means they weren't finding the fish. We drilled many holes over a single underwater point and found the depth the fish were holding at rather than changing spots. It worked out well for us. More holes = More Fish. Get your drill on! (I guess that's next year though)
I rigged up the Underwater GoPro Hero and captured this amazing footage after a few minutes out on the pond fishing for rainbow trout. I was dragging a Thomas Buoyant in red and gold. Fabulous shots, better than I thought it would be and just starting to fine tune my camera trolling rig.
Our first time to Moose Lake near Bonnyville was a success! We searched all morning but found the walleye hanging on a point with a near by weed bed. The fish reacted very well to a Berkley Havoc swim bait that was cast up on the flat and then hopped down the drop off. They were hitting the lure multiple times every cast. Fishing was fast and furious and ranged in size from 43- 60 cm with the odd Northern Pike thrown in for good measure. This really is a great lake in Alberta if you're looking to catch some beautiful walleye. Don't take my word for it, get out there and try it for yourself. Amazing structural elements as well with tons of points, flats, humps, rivers, weed beds... you name it that lake has it.
