Trout on Ice

Pulling huge browns is basically ice fishing on steroids.

Ice fishing is a fast-growing sport in the northern climes. These are the 'ice people', many of whom would rather fish in the frozen conditions than on a warm summer day. These hardy souls harvest largely panfish from their fish houses, pop-ups and tip ups. But what about catching BIG fish through the ice?

Former North American Fisherman host Eric Haataja is fishing out of Milwaukee harbor, and he'll show you how he pulls huge brown trout and steelhead up through the ice holes.

His presentation is easier than you might think. It'll have you digging through your gear and mapping a trip to Milwaukee harbor.
