Hey Scum Frog do you ever get out on the ice? You should have your brother-in-law give you another guided trip up to Red!!

Scum Frog I know your a Bass man. I've only caught a few thru the ice, and only by accident. The ones I have caught have been big.

Anybody else ever try for bass thru ice with success?

It would be a blast trying to figure out how to do it.

If you can find where one of their winter holes are, they actually can be relatively easy to catch. I've targeted them a few times through the ice with tip ups and medium to large shiners. Biggest one was just under 6 pounds. Bass tend to hit more like a walleye than a pike on the tip ups. But not always. The big one I caught almost spooled me. I got to the flag and it was running with it as fast as any pike and it just wouldn't stop!

That has been my expierence with winter Bass. They grab it and run for the hills. I don't think I've ever caught one less than 3lbs thru the ice. Like I stated earlier I've never intended to go out Bass fishing thru the ice. I guess when you set up with a tip-up tipped with shiner/sucker in 10ft on top of weeds your fishing Bass/Northern/Walleye or what ever the lake has to offer. Infact I would like to take back my earlier statement about never trying to catch Bass in the winter. I fish Bass all the time and catch Northern by accident ooo smiley
