I am pretty new to fishing for lakers, or trout in general through the ice. One thing for sure is that I do know is this is FUN stuff, and wish that I could do it more often. Thanks for getting me even more excited about my trip next month. Can't wait.

The size of bait you are using is a pretty big factor depending on the lake you are fishing. Some lakes like Superior have larger forage therefore you will have better luck using larger offerings. Most of the lakers I have caught have come on walleye sized jigs and minnows. I usually go with a lindy darter or a medium sized tube jig for jigging. For my other line I will use a tip up baited with a rainbow shiner, medium sucker, or frozen cisco right on the bottom in 50 or less ft of water on a steep break or some other structure. The bigger lakers seem to like to suck bait right off the bottom in my experience. I'm not saying you can't catch them jigging, But the bigger ones I have caught have come on tip ups right on or just off the bottom. Hope this helps. Good luck and hold on.

Wow these are incredible posts, guys! I want to see those posts coming in big numbers!!! I'm going to have my first outing for ice lakers in 10 days, the question is what time of day (or night ) is this fish active, is it worth to spend a night on the ice or should I concentrate on fishing during the day?

The best times of the day is early in the morning or late afternoon into evening. here is how i would rate the time's of the day.

1. early morning/late afternoon into evening
2. day time
3. night time

I also agree that live or dead bait on the bottom produce larger lakers. good luck.

I spent some time ice fishing for Lakers in Alaska, but I am by no means an expert. I had the best luck with tube jigs. Here is a link for the Alaska section of ice shanty. There is some nice pictures of 20-30 lbers, and some decent conversation about what has worked for people. Hopefully this help get you started. http://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/index.php?topic=263089.0
