Iceless ice fishing!
While many ice anglers are chomping at the bit for cold weather to freeze things up, My short rods and ice reels are getting a workout, by gold stren ice line is getting stretched, and my flasher is lit up like a Christmas tree!
I am just sitting over 10 to 20 ft vertical jigging and getting many nice bluegills and crappies. It is a bit harder to stay vertical and read the line in my float tube in the wind, than it is on ice, but on the other hand, no hole drilling needed, so it all equaled out. Heavy metal tungsten jigs helped it from drifting out too far, and tipping with live bait caused them to hold onto the jig longer, so I had time to see the bites in the wind.









here is a video of some of the fish being caught on my ice rod from my float tube
