My favorite ice fishing occurs when I can sight fish, actually watch the action below the ice with my own eyes. Yes, I know that flashers will show us fish approaching, fish moving up and down with the lure and when the fish is in the hot zone. To sight fish, you must come equipped with a good portable shelter that will block the light so you can see down the hole. To give you an idea of what to expect, here are a couple of typical scenarios that I have experienced many times. Often the bluegills will swim right in, right toward the bait and then stop… and stare and stare at the bait less than an inch away. Case in point, I remember a time last winter when the bluegills were very finicky, almost lethargic and came through only one at a time. When that happened, it kind of sent a shock wave through the bunch, and they would just sit there, trying to decide whether they should continue toward the bait or not. Author’s grandson, Hunter Wheatley with a nice gill caught sight fishing on West Okoboji.


Not only have we lowered our prices for this 2014 Fish Hawk WT, but save an extra $1250 with Crestliner's Silver Tag Event until August 31st. Now, when the fish come in, we will see exactly what they are doing and how they respond to our presentation. Although there are times when it seems as if they will bite anything you throw down the hole, more often than not, it’s much harder than that. Remember, they are sight fish, so everything that happens in their lives happens in clear water. I’ve had this happen many times, because the point of the hook is not turned in the direction of the incoming fish. Whether the fish win or I win, I feel that the mission has been accomplished, because I have been able to battle wits with the finicky bluegills on the gin clear waters of West Lake Okoboji. To be able to watch the fish approach the lure, to see its response to the presentation and then (hopefully) the resulting strike – or if not, the resulting refusal. When the fish hits the hot zone, keeping the same presentation going will often trigger a strike. If enough fish are in the area and enough are attracted to our bait, we begin to see a pattern establish itself.
That gin clear water is what brings ice fishermen from across the Midwest to West Lake every winter: the chance to go head to head with its finicky big bluegills. If we pay close attention, we can soon refine our presentation to get a majority of the fish to strike.


If I changed my presentation (a tight jiggle, jiggle, jiggle), they would stop and just hover there…and then they would slowly fin back and away, moving at an extremely slow place.I found, however, if I continued the same jiggle, and I did not vary it, they would very slowly come…nose to bait…and then inhale it. Sometimes one single gill would come rushing right toward the bait so hard and fast that it would misjudge its approach and slide right on by.
Sometimes, however, it was only the tip or maybe it was the middle or the head of my tiny jig. We might be in the 3-4 foot shallows, the deeper 10-12 foot weedbeds and on up to the 15-18 foot deep weedlines. They were just plain aggressive (almost made me think I knew what I was doing!) At times, I’d even have 5-6 gills come from different directions right toward my jig. Other times it would just continue on.Still, the presentation had to be consistent with what brought them into the strike zone. However, there are times (especially during the middle of the winter) when they are really lethargic that they won’t hit anything.
