I’m new to this muskie thing, but thought I should try it through the ice. I’m hoping to get up to Mille Lacs in the next few weeks. I realize things can change considerably by then, but here are a few questions.
1)What is a typical area to fish for muskies through the early ice?? Shallow or deep, weedlines??
2)What is a good bait this time of year to hang off a tipup and one for vertical jigging?? I always use smelt for pike, will they work well for the ski’s also??
Any general info you can provide is much appreciated!!
