RLM Elite Pike Box [Feb 2019]

Happy Valentine’s Day to one and all. It’s the day of love, and I love getting new lures in the mail! My Simple Fishing Elite box comes every 2 months, and it’s always a great time when it does. This month I opted for the Pike box, for no real reason other than I really miss Pike fishing. I expected…

Lucky Tackle Box Ice Fishing [January, 2019]

LTB Ice Fishing box, Jan-2019 This month sees another attempt at an LTB Ice Fishing box. Lucky Tackle Box didn’t seem to have it dialed in back in November. December brought another poor attempt that I didn’t even bother making a video for. Perhaps January will break the streak of mediocrity? My hopes were not high going into this review.…

Mystery Tackle Box Pro [Jan 2019]

Jan Pro Walleye Box It’s a little late, but today I unboxed the MTB Pro Walleye box for January. I was hoping for some good ice fishing lures from this Jan pro box. There is no open water anywhere near me, and all my fishing right now is through the ice. Mystery Tackle Box did not disappoint with this box,…

Ice Fishing the Zombie Maxx, from Lucky Bug

In this video I talk about fishing the Zombie Maxx from Lucky Bug Lures through the ice. This is not a traditional ice fishing lure. The restrictions of jigging through the ice would seem to work against it. You wouldn’t normally think of a jointed swim bait for jigging, however the Zombie Maxx can be surprisingly effective if used right.…

Ball Tail Grub from Crazy Hick Baits This week’s Hookup review is about the Ball Tail Grub, from Crazy Hick Bait Co. I received this in my Ice Fishing Elite box from Simple Fishing.

Mystery Tackle Box Elite [Dec? 2018]

MTB Elite December … ? It’s time for another MTB Elite December unboxing. What’s that you say? I’ve already done an MTB Elite December unbox? Why yes, yes I have. The shipping and delivery timing of this box continues to confound me. Either the earlier December box was very, very late, or this box is very, very early. I’m not…

RLM Elite Multi-Species [Dec 2018]

Early Christmas! This week I received my December RLM Elite box from Simple Fishing. I decided on the multi-species box for this one. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone with that option. Ice fishing season is upon us here in Manitoba, and so I was hoping to get a lure or two that might be useful in a 10″ hole.…

Brereton Lake, Big Space, Tough Ice Fishing

This week I had the opportunity to go ice fishing on Brereton Lake with Dave, Evan, and Ben. While I’ve obviously known Dave for awhile, this would be my first time meeting either Ben or Evan. We would be targeting crappie in particular, although I know from experience that there are also walleye and pike. I was looking forward to…
