For the guys that fish walleye and perch through the ice focusing on the bottom is normally all you do. However this is something I do when fishing is tough, I'm searching for active fish or I'm fishing a new body of water.
When fishing deeper water resist the temptation to jig just inches off the bottom.
By simply raising your presentation 3 feet, you greatly enhance your visibility to predator fish.
*Remember fish see UP and not down.
Remember you are covering 8 inches of water. Slight adjustments can and will attract more fish from a greater distance.
*REMEMBER NO ICE IS EVER SAFE*
If you’re really into fishing; I’ve got together with Gary and the crew at Ballards Black Island Resort and set up a trip to chase trophy Walleyes, Pike, Smallmouth and Musky this year.
I even got Gary to agree to make it an all-inclusive trip and for a limited time!
So come join me in Canada this summer! Let's get hooked up!
