    Thru the month of march i spent alot of time fishing Rainbow Trout on a lake a hour from Bemidji. The inland walleye and pike season has closed in late February so i turned to another fun, and great tasting fish to target! The lake i was fishing is a lake the is open for ice angling unlike a couple Bemidji area trout lakes. With 20ft water clarity these fish were very fun to sight fish right under the ice! I targeted the most gradual feeding flats fairly shallow in 25fow up to 8fow. Ive been fishing anywhere from 3-6 feet under the ice as they cruise right under the ice on these shallow areas. Small silver spoons tipped with waxies was there bait of choice. I can’t wait til next march to fish these exciting fish again thru the ice!

    Awesome fish, and great read! How big was that first one? By the lip I’m guessing at least 24″!?
