Yellow Perch Ice Fishing underwater video with HD GoPro Hero 3 plus video in high speed. Amazingly clear shots again and fun to watch in high speed. Also seems like a minnow got snagged while jigging a Cicada . Good thing the perch know it's illegal to you like minnows in Alberta so they left it alone.
GoPro Hero 3+ Black Underwater camera set up to film the Jaw Jacker. I didn't realize it had been set off earlier and this is what resulted underwater during that time. I'm amazed how clear this Hero 3+ is. Really spectacular images in HD. Too bad there weren't a few more perch around that were interested in biting this day. It was fun to watch them chase the minnows around anyways.
Ice Fishing for Big Pike at Pinehurst Lake Alberta. This is one of the lakes I enjoy going to since if feels wild and you have the chance to catch a nice pike. Maybe not the greatest numbers, but there are a few larger fish around. Headed out with my mom and got set up around noon. Caught a couple nice pike and a smaller one. Also had a bunch of dropped baits... I guess we'll never know how big those ones were. All fish caught on Windlass Tip Up.
Lesser Slave Lake in Alberta is known for great walleye fishing and this was my first experience on the lake during the hard water season. Supposedly 90 % of the fish spawn in the river running into the west side of the lake. Since we were fishing the first week of March and spring was coming it seemed like the West side of the lake would be an obvious choice to try. We drove onto the lake and noticed a line of ice huts. We picke a location and drilled some holes and noted these shacks were not on any structure. So we drilled towards shore until we found to drop off from 30 feet of water up to 10 feet. As soon as we got onto the drop we started to nail the walleye. They were very concentrated in this location and the action was steady for the first few hours. It tapered off later during the day but we continued to catch walleye, pike and tulibee. In the afternoon we tried our deeper holes near the ice hut depth and ended up catching a couple nice perch and more walleye. What a great day for our first time ice fishing the lake.

Caution this footage is likely to cause angler envy and perch shrinkage. Warning! Watch at your own risk! This episode may contain brief periods of uncontrolled excitement, hollering, jumping for joy and other forms of monster fish induced psychosis. On a more serious note this was most likely the biggest perch fishing day I've ever experienced in my life. What a great day on the ice. Check out the show and pick up a few quick tips on the way. Thanks for watching.

Went out to Cold Lake for some Lake Trout action twice in January of 2014. Turns out we just did not hit it right either day on the ice. The first day only managed to catch one fish period. That was the only bite as well. This video is from our second day out. The weather was awesome in the morning but a storm blew in and shut the fish right off. Caught two lake trout in the first 5 minutes then nothing. Super slow all day. They were hitting the smelt on the jaw jacker but getting off before I could even get to the rod. Lost a few short strikes and then hooked up on the last one in the late afternoon to avoid a skunk for myself. Slow day and most people left early. Didn't see anyone catching out there. Some one drove right through our set up and drove over a tip up breaking it in half. Why people drive right through a group of 6 people on the ice i'll never know, but several did it out there. Please respect others out on the ice, keep your distance and happy fishing!
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!
This winter I was determined to catch a walleye on a JawJacker, but I knew it might be a challenge. I seem to loose half the ones I hook on my own line, never mind one that is sitting dead stick on its own. So after a few missed strikes I came up with the flasher jig and minnow combination with two stinger hooks. I think this is overkill and I think you would get away with just one stuck in the tail of the minnow. After all all the ones that I actually got up the hole were hooked well with the main jig anyways and I didn't even need the treble stingers. Anyways check out my demo on how the Jaw Jacker can help you catch more walleye this ice season. Good luck out there.
Went out one morning to Floatingstone lake since I was reading on iFishAlberta the summer fishing has been very good for pike and walleye with the closure. I went out to see what could be caught. Approaching a new body of water can be tough, but I studied the depth charts, tried by the iceshacks, and off some points with drop offs. Turns out I didn't have a fabulous morning, but it wasn't awful. Caught a walleye at first light a few pike and some micro perch. Not sure if there are many good sized perch in there. Good luck if you head out just remember there is a bait ban (maggots meal worms only) and a 0 keep limit for pike and walleye. Got a nice shot of a pike sitting on the bottom below my hole with a GoPro Hero.
