This is only my second season ice fishing so I am still kind if new to it. I also have not had the opportunity to fish many lakes on the Mesa, Vega being the exception, although its really not on the Mesa. Any tips? I planning to go this weekend with a buddy.
If you don't have them you might get some good Lures. Swedish Pimple,Kastmasters and my new Favorite is the Slender Spoons from Custom Jigs and Spins. Gold is always a good color. Tip them with a meal or wax worm and jig. There are a lot of different ways of jigging. Some fast jerks in a row and then let it sit a while or Small little twitches and let it sit or even a slow raise and then let it drop back down and let it sit. You can find most fish on the Mesa in 12-20 Feet of Water. FOW. Good luck out there and always be safe by checking ice conditions as you go out. Don't want to see anyone in this or any other area fall through.
