    IDO TV Season 17 Episode 11 is NOW LIVE!

    James Holst and Konnor Kleist cut a spear hole to sight fish rainbow trout in Minnesota. These fish were roaming the shallow shoreline and we were able to intercept them with both jigs & spoons as they swam by.

    That was the best Ice Fishing show I’ve seen in years.
    How cool is it to use a landing net!!!

    BTW – That last one was a Freakin Toad bow

    That was one of my favorite ice fishing experiences in a long time. Sight fishing in general is really cool. Getting to watch all the smaller trout swimming through and interacting with the baits was a ton of fun. Then you see your first 5# trout and things start to get intense. Then you see a 7# trout and you’re on pins and needles. Then a true magnum 30″ – 10# trout swims by and takes a half-hearted nip at your bait and things get real serious! By the time I caught that bigger trout I was so amped up and wanted to catch one of the bigger fish so bad I was vibrating. And then it happened and I lost my mind! yay

    That was a cool episode. I chuckled when you got out there and told Konnor you like snowmobiles rotflol , between the walk out and cutting the hole I’m guessing you were a little sore the next day. That thing had an awesome paint job!

    Love trout fishing through the ice. Haven’t done it in 20 years. No lakes close to me. Catching tullibee is a pretty close equivalent.
