Copper Harbor Ice Fishing??

When I lived in the Keewenaw we just used our regular ice fishing gear usually after the stocked trout which were plentiful. Occasionally you will get some splake, lakers, and whites. Russian hooks with waxies or small spoons for the larger trout. Toss out a line on the bottom with half a minnow was usually good for the whites. If you are adventurous and want some lakers drive down the shoreline towards Eagle Harbor and you will usually see some people out on the big lake itself providing there is plenty of ice. They will be fishing between the ice piles where the ice is thin using gabu and jig tipped with minnow, piece of smelt, or if you have some - belly fat from laker and jig it just like you are bobbing on the open water. This fishing is not for the faint of heart as you will see most of them drag a canoe with them when fishing these thinner ice sections. Do not go it alone, ask to go with someone that has experience out there.
