The Best Glow Jigs & Spoons to use for Ice Fishing for Walleye, Crappie & Perch!
"You gonna fish your way, I gonna fish mine!" - Poppee Poppee always fished way different than me. I was always, thinking, drilling, grabbing a different rod and generally panicking that if the fish weren't gonna bite soon, it would be a tough day and THEN WE WOULD HAVE TO FACE MY MOM WITHOUT FISH FOR THE FRYER!

Panfish are king! Choosing the Right Panfish Lures
Oh panfish. I love panfish. They are fun to catch and good to eat. If you’re new to fishing, you may wonder what is a panfish? It isn’t a specific species. It’s a term that refers to many different species of fish that are small enough to fit in a frying pan but large enough to be legal and fun to catch. Perch, bass, crappie, are all panfish and we talk a lot about how to catch them. Once upon a time the Fox Chain in Northern Illinois was a yellow bass factory.

Tungsten Jigs: New Age Ice Fishing vs. Old School

In the beginning, I was young and strong, I could drill a dozen holes with my hand auger, move around and drill a …
