    Ice Fishing
    Burntside Trout Adventures:
    In the months of January, February and March my passion is the pursuit of lake trout on Burntside Lake, Snowbank Lake and Trout Lake.
    Of the three I do most of my fishing on Burntside. It is a beautiful 7,000 acre Canadian shield lake with endless lake trout structure located near Ely, MN. It has a good population of native lake trout as well as stocked fish; and the forage base of smelt produces a fat, healthy fish.
    Burntside doesn't give up its fish easily but I've developed a few very successful tactics over the years. Each winter I have a good catch rate with a number of fish in the 7 - 14 pound range as well as numbers of 3 - 6 pounders. Chasing these fickle fish in the northern woods winter is a challenge I relish!
    I also make a few trips into Trout and Snowbank which are also beautiful lakes and good trout producing waters.
    I will provide rods, reels, tip-ups and tackle if needed. I also have one Otter Magnum lodge, a 2 man sled house, one smaller two man sled house, heaters and a ten inch Jiffy Legend Stealth auger.
    Depending on snow and ice conditions a snowmobile may be needed. I have one snowmobile with a hitch, rack and a two up seat. This is for myself and one passenger, and to tow the sled house and gear. Another snowmobile will be provided by you the client.

    And at the end of a day of fishing, I'll clean your fish!
