BEST JIGS - big fish through ice

Ice fishing with the hottest tackle on the ice! Had the pleasure of meeting up with Mark & Scott Armstrong for a radical day on the hardwater. We got the snowmobiles out and saw some great fish come too side! If you would like to see the action here is the episode [log in for link]

Thanks for the great footage. Takes me back to the old days up there--like 25-30 years ago. Never had the rapid fire action like you guys!! Great stuff.

Pretty sure those are Bonneville trout, close cousin to the bear river.

The Bear River/Bear Lake Cutthroat Trout is an interesting variety with an interesting history. Even though the present day Bear River terminates in the Great Salt Lake within the Bonneville Basin, these cutthroat trout actually evolved on a separate path from other Bonneville cutthroat trout. Geologic evidence suggests that the course of the Bear River was changed approximately 20,000 years ago due to volcanic activity. Previously, the Bear River was actually connected to the Bear Lake and Snake River drainage. Because of this, the Bear River/Bear Lake cutthroat trout share closest ancestry with the Yellowstone cutthroat trout in the Snake River and Yellowstone drainages. Bear Lake Cutts are known for their voracious appetites and can grow to impressive sizes
