Jigging The King

It's been a trying winter for ice anglers across the Northeast--a one step forward, two steps back kind of season. Frankly, there are not a whole lot of fishable venues to get excited about and the conditions of what ice there is is questionable. I've been out just once so far and chose not to go a few other times. It's been so bad that last night I found myself reliving ice trips of the past through photos and video footage. As heavy rains pelted my roof and the thermometer hovered over 50 degrees, I put the final touches on a project from a road trip last January to the Adirondacks. It was an awesome memory with some of the best ice I've ever stepped foot on. While it would take close to a miracle for Lake George to lock up over the next few weeks, we fishermen are an optimistic lot. In the meantime, I'll watch this video a few more times and keep a hopeful eye on the long-term forecast.


  1. I hate to say it... but it isn't looking good. There's enough open water on the ponds here that I was fly fishing for pickerel today.

  2. awesome video, we have just finished a nice ice fishing trip last week, spring is coming!
