After pre-fishing two days ago, I met the crew and we arrived at the our brook trout back-lake early yesterday morning. As soon as we arrived we were met by deer crossing the lake and the camera man immediately started to record them on-camera. I proceeded to gear-up and the shoot was on. This time I cut about 15-holes before we stared fishing and as soon as I started fishing the first hole, I was catching 7″ brook trout like the day before. We fished the area for about 2hrs. without catching larger brookies and moved to our second area. Again I was catching smaller brookies, I did some on-camera tips and then we moved to our third location. There we cut holes in shallower water and I started catching one large brook trout after another.
The Humminbird 55 Ice Sonar came in handy for locating the depth and for making my lure and the brookies. The top producing lures were the Rapala Rattling Flash Spoon in the 1/4 oz. size and the Lucky Strike , 1/5 oz., gold Nugget Spoon. Both spoons were tipped with the TriggerX Honey Worm and Maggot. If you love to ice fish, make sure to look for this Trophy Brook Trout ice fishing TV show when it airs in our 2010-11, TV series on TSN.
