Calling Lake Ice Fishing Walleye and Northern Pike on GOPRO HERO by Volkswagen Point. The fish were biting walleye flasher jigs tipped with minnows. This was an odd year with poor snow coverage on the lake. Made things a little slick and may have played into our slow day since the fish probably saw us walking around above.

At times, icefishing for perch can be ridiculously easy, due largely to their voracious appetite. Indeed, catching a bucketful of dinks is often mere child's play. That is not the case with big fish. When these so-called sumo perch start to chew, I become a man on a mission.
