    Big Un from under the ice.

    Not my video but I thought some of you guys might get a kick out of it. Skip to 7 minutes if the lead-up is too boring.

    That is an incredibly good fish. @Dundee will be wanting to come over for a fishing trip.

    The fish seemed a bit lethargic is that because the water is so cold?

    Pretty sure it's an LPG heater. They sure were well set up. I was thinking they were a bit close to the hole until you saw how thick the ice is. It looked a good 2ft thick!

    They are a beautiful fish. I remember seeing some big ones mounted in bait shops all over Northern Ontario. They get pretty big ah.

    The only trout I ever caught there were Browns in the lower Niagara and Pickral trout? That the right name Jay?
    Mainly caught Large mouth, small mouth and black bass along with a few perch and catfish up around Parry sound.

    The few times I've been ice fishing we used special ice fishing line, although I'm not sure what's special about it. Can't remember the brand either but no visible fraying after hauling a few out.

    I'm not sure what those guys were using as bait but it was probably something like power bait or another highly visible and heavily scented type of bait. The guys I go with dump a bunch of bait down into the hole (mixture of corn and old power bait) then hang their baited hook (usually baited with a worm) right above it and start jiggin when a fish comes by. I don't get out often as you need a fair amount of gear to make it worth doing but I never pass on an opportunity to do it.
    @R93 I think you're talking about Pickerel, which looks a bit like a small pike eh? They're native to the Great Lakes but they were introduced into a few of our local watersheds in Nova Scotia and they totally wreck the trout population to the point at which they have to be stocked each year. They're great fun to fish though, heaps of fight in them!

    Sounds right mate. Dunno why I remember them as a trout. I only ever caught one reasonable sized one at the start of a canoe trip in the 70's. I towed the bugger around everywhere for a few days and remember being most upset when a leech chowed down on it and it went off.
