Cold Laker video earlier in January
« on: February 16, 2014, 08:26:05 PM »



Went out to Cold Lake for some Lake Trout action twice in January. 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. 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!

I buy them online off the website, but it is easier for me since I have a US address.  I emailed the distributor since people ask me and you can order them from a few places out in eastern canada.  Supposedly Canadian tire and other stores may start to carry them in the next year.  At least that is what they told me.  For now you can always use an automatic fisherman, but they are kind of bulky.  I like how the jaw jackers are so compact and adjustable.
