Walleye, Northern Pike, Burbot made up one of the most EPIC ice fishing days we've experienced Ice Fishing Alberta. We were fishing a drop off and the fish were thick, intense and very hungry. They were hitting soft body swimbaits, slender spoons and large herring on tip ups. Big walleye, Pike and burbot were attacking our presentations. It was great to have the MarCum as I feel it helped me hook up on a lot more fish anticipating the bites. I also show a couple tips on how to lose less lures when fishing for big fish and how to rig a large bait on a tip up. Hope you enjoy the show.
How to Ice Fish Alberta Perch and Walleye with Slender Spoon. My uncle and I head out on a new lake to us in search of perch and walleye. In the morning we tried out a spot we were given a tip about for perch. We didn't find any perch there but we sure did find the walleye. After catching a bunch of walleye at sunrise the action cooled down and we headed on the search for perch. We found some tight lipped perch in deeper water and were able to hook some for dinner. Once again we headed to where we were earlier in the morning for some evening walleye action and it didn't disappoint. Hope you enjoy the day out on the ice as much as we did.

How to ice fishing for East Pit Lake in Alberta, Rainbow Trout. These trout have a voracious appetite eating a lot of large food items in the early ice season to pack on the pounds for winter before food and oxygen supplies dwindle later in the season. These fish were packed with large water beetles and other aquatic insects. They weren't full though because they were very aggressive on the MarCum and would charge in and not waste any time before grabbing the spoon. Had a great day out on the ice and if you give it a try I hope you do too!

This is one of the worlds greatest lake trout fisheries and it is not that far away. So pack up your boat and downriggers to go check it out for yourself. It is a beautiful lake with frequent aerial shows as fighter jets fly in formation over the lake in and out of the air weapons range. With a fish finder you'll be able to locate the fish and troll at the appropriate depth to catch them. A variety of lures with help you land a good number of fish. Some of the best spoons are the Williams Wobbler and Whitefish. The Luhr Jensen Manistee is also a local favorite. You can also pull jointed Rapalas and other floating crankbaits. Bait really isn't needed as these fish are very willing to hit a lure. Trolling speed should be varied from 1.5 mph to 3 mph for best results.
Whitefish lake is not too far from where we usually fish so I decided to head there after seeing some nice walleye on Instagram posted by a local. Careful though the water level is down and there are exposed rock islands and large boulders at the launch, stay trimmed up for at least 100-200 yards out. We headed across to a couple underwater islands and started trolling crankbaits. The first to go was a minnow pattern Rapala Tail Dancer. The fish fought long and hard and turned out to be a big northern pike. Not a bad fish for the first fish ever at a lake. Beginners luck I guess. Then we went on to catch some nice walleye as well on crankbaits and jigging a kastmaster. Get out there and try it out seems to be loaded with fish judging by my fish finder.
This was my first time fishing East Pit Lake in Alberta Canada north of Wabamun Lake. This lake was created from an old coal mining pit. It is deep, long and narrow with foot access only. This lake has legends of holding 10 pound rainbow trout but with increased pressure you're probably more likely to get some 18-20 inch fish as the big ones these days. I started out fishing with a spoon as the lure is heavier and even though small allows you to get it a fair distance into the lake from shore. In a few casts I was hooked up with the first 16 inch rainbow trout. Watch and I catch a bunch of hook ups, amazing runs and jumps from these scrappy Alberta Pothole Lake Rainbow Trout. Through the video I'll help you get started catching Rainbow Trout on Spoons with a few tips that always seem to help me catch more fish when I'm out on the water. Hope you enjoy.
