Trout and Char Ice Fishing
The trout and char are chasing the smolt balls around the lakes. Jigging anything that matches the size of the minnows in the lakes you are fishing is working right now. Tipping ice jigs and spoons with whitefish has been deadly. The month of February is my favorite time of year to ice fish in Alaska and it’s still cold enough usually to enjoy having the comforts of a heated shelter.
