Author Topic: Need advice on rainbows through the ice

Hi there,

I'm not new to ice fishing but I never had the opportunity to fish rainbows on ice. Any advice would be appreciated (or websites; I've had a hard time finding related info.)



rainbows swim under not on the ice.

hope that helps

rainbows swim under the ice? you are sure about that?

Try just bait on a hook and a a weight. Worms, Meal worm, maggots, or packaged shrimp. You can also use ice fishing jigs with or with out bait. I like to use a lead head with a leech type pattern body (white) with a small piece of bait. I just jig it close to the bottom. I have even jigged with a good sized spoon. It seems to bring in more fish but they bite less.
fish on

A two inch chrome lure that has a red eye on each side(Lure Jensen) I think as an attractant, two feet below stinky shrimp on a hook. Buy the shrimp and leave it out for a few days to get stinky. Fish in four feet of water.

Ok, let me hijack my thread to shed a little light on some low life ass holes that have nothing better to do that to troll this forum and make stupid useless remarks with no contribution whatsoever. What the f%%k dickweed? Are you starving for attention? Did your mother beat you as a child? If you have nothing better to do with your life please do all of us a favor and end it. I know you are extremely stupid but even you could tie a rope around your neck (just make sure the not is solid). Or at least get the f##k out of here and go annoy one of your inbred half sister or something and stop wasting our time.

Aren?t there any mods here? It's a nice forum aside from dickless sh#t f$%ks like Tuna. I noticed a lot of threads are filled with childish behavior (a few instigated by the same informative and intelligent jackass.) The comment he made here probably does not warrant sanction but in other threads he uttered comments that would have got him banned on other boards.

Anyways, to let you know, I just wanted to vent a little but I will not reply to your senseless babbles and start another childish thread.

As for the rest of the replies; thanks for the info guys. I'll try shrimps and shallow waters.



wow garman, nice vocabulary for someone who's crying for the help of a moderator. did you bring out your book of big words for all that foul language?

i see some anger management classes in your near future so you can better cope with the tough things in life such as absorbing little internet wise cracks.

at least YG has a sense of humor

and don't forget, ice fishing is for old fat guys


i use a bright green glow in the dark jig head with a mealworm. swallow water close to the bottom. caught my limit all 3 times i've gone out this winter. and don't just sit over one hole. keep jigging all the time and fish two or three different holes. if you arn't getting any bites there aren't any fish there so go somewere else.
