Brook Trout - High Alpine Ice Fishing Video

Post By: FishHuntNow      Posted: 11/22/2020 8:55:34 PM     Points: 1324    
Traditionally me and Basschaser from the forums here love going on a high elevation hike to target some Brookies. It was roughly a 5 mile round trip to one of my favorite lakes to target brookies and lakers. I was primarily going after the Brookies. They're spawn colors are stunning. We ended up catching over a 100 fish, with some Lakers in the mix. Here's the [log in for link] to the video.

Some pictures of the fish and the hike.

3way, yea all the gates are closed it was a full 2.5 miles up and down, it's not too bad, that first 1/4 is the worst.

Johnski,

Thanks bud, glad you enjoyed it.

You should. Red tubes with chartreuse tail did well. I didn't even give anything bigger then 1.5 inches a try. I bet if you get a 3.5 inch tube on and explore , you might hook into something nice. My buddy caught a 25 inch laker which is rare there. I figure those lakers are munching on 3 to 6 inch brookies all day!

Good work you guys. The effort of getting up there should keep it from getting too crowded.

Troutbisquits,

You know I would think so too but when you have an addiction like some of us do the hike is nothing but a challenge you're willing to take on to get to some ice fishing. The peace and serenity is why I go up there for the fishing is a bonus.

Basschaser,

I'm glad you texted me that photo after I finished the hike and on my way home if you showed it to me before my hike back I'd been a bit paranoid for sure! :D

Assassin,

Ooops! Glad you enjoyed it though! If you thought that was fish porn with music, may I interest you in some big browns slo-mo releases to music .. [log in for link]
