Rainbows on Ice - Fat Rainbow Video/pics
« on: December 18, 2013, 02:44:03 AM »
I'm out on the farm and was thinking of fishing the Leduc Res today. My father in law suggested trying out one of his neighbor's trout ponds.  Well that sounded like a plan to me.  I've seen people catching some fat rainbows in the past on private ponds and it was finally my turn to try it out!  So we headed out in the late afternoon, drilled some holes and put out a few JawJackers.  When I was setting up the second one with a bead head Chironimid I dropped it to the bottom and set the rod on the ice.  As I was setting up the jaw jacker the rod was pulled towards the hole and I grabbed it before it's first swimming lesson began.  It felt like a nice fish and before long I could see a fat rainbow flashing below my hole.  I got her up on the ice and then bam the other jaw jacker goes off and I pull up another.  Reset the JawJackers and shortly was on to two more great dug out rainbows.  What a way to start an ice season.  I think I'll have to go try tomorrow morning again.  This was my first video shot with the GoPro Hero 3+.

Thanks weeman just got to the parents so I'll go check it out.   Glad you guys liked it.   

This snow and washwater has really put a damper on all my dreams of ice fishing this early season ice.  I guess I'll be mostly walking on and sloshing around in the slush!  Ill still catch some fish but it will be a little more tough.  Hope later in January they freeze up so we can get on Cold and the usual haunts for some more action.
