We’re out in Lake Simcoe on Cook’s Bay right at the end of January. It’s been a very warm winter this year, and this is the first time we’ve had a chance to get out onto some safe ice. Right now we’re standing on about 8-10 inches of ice.

We’re not using any bait today, as we’re running the Stingnose jigging spoons. It’s so realistic that it looks like a minnow all on it’s own. The hook is placed right on the head of the minnow, which is where fish tend to hit first. They are perfect for lightly jigging close to the bottom.

We brought the ice fishing hut with us today, though we’re not going to use it. The advantage of not using the hut is it gives us the option of being mobile if the hole we’re fishing for perch at are producing smaller fish.

We brought the power auger with us, and without needing to setup and tear down a hut, we’re able to walk about, drilling more hole as needed. It also helps that today’s weather was well above freezing.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
