THE ICE IS NEAR

The ice is near...
It's time to check out the gear, clean it, refresh the line, fire the heaters.  Open the portable shanties to air out and get inspected.

It won't be long now...

Here's a highlight from last year when My Grandson Justin and I tagged teamed a nice lake trout on four pound test Berkley Fireline while jigging for yellow perch on Lake Champlain!



Yup...
The ice is near!

Oh, and one of Lake Champlains favorite ice fishing lures...
The Swedish Pimple

Yup, it won't be long here either. I have plans to ice fish this year... the first year in many. We'll see how it goes.

Great video and one heck of a great Laker! Video makes a big treat as you and the grandson can watch over and over. Maybe you will catch this big fish again sometime.
