It would be more than an understatement to say that WFN expert Gord Pyzer knows his ice fishing, seeing as how he's co-hosted ice fishing shows and is a member of the Canadian Angler Hall of Fame. So if you're looking to catch more fish through the ice, you'd do well to follow the four trade secrets he reveals in the videos below! From lure modifications to gear recommendations, here are four great ice fishing tips you should try this year.
Be sure to tune in on Sunday, January 13 from 7pm-12am ET / 4pm-9pm PT for WFN's Ice Fishing Marathon.
White tube jigs have long been a popular bait for ice fishing, especially for lake trout. So effective are they that they could be the only tackle you bring out all season and you won't be disappointed. As good as they are, Gord shares a simple way to modify them that makes them even better.
You may think it's crazy to think of using lipless crankbaits for ice fishing - after all, it's primarily designed for open water bass fishing - but it's what you should tie on your line if you're after big walleye. Gord goes over the best time and place to use these lures.
For just a buck or two, you can quadruple the amount of fish you can catch. You can detect even the tiniest of bites with a spring bobber, and best of all, they can easily be transferred from rod to rod.
Another walleye secret that requires a little bit of lure modification, but it's worth all the effort. If you like to tip your jigs with live bait, the rig Gord presents in the video above will increase your catch rate by a large margin.
