Good bye traditional, welcome technological… ice fishing has been an extremely popular activity since the dawn of time. However, throughout the years, traditional techniques have been stepping aside in favour of technology, with more proactive, more accurate, and more efficient fishing techniques.
During the winter, it is harder to move from one fishing area to the next. Therefore, it is important to make a thorough prospecting before arriving on the body of water in order to find the potentially productive areas. A tool such as the electronic application made by Navionics Company will forever change the quality of this prospecting.
Winter or summer, fish resort to precise structures. For the majority of species, leaps and plateaus are all structures of choice.
Once these structures are discovered and accurately localized, it is now time to find your catches. Reflective display sonars, better known as ‘’flashers’’, will allow you to maximize your fishing time.
– Find holes of activity
– Localize the depth of your target fish within the water column (suspension)
– Find out about the species’ mood
– See at which time to be attentive in order not to miss a catch.
Large pioneering companies, for example Vexilar, offer different models to meet the needs of everyone, but rest assured that, from the entry-level models to the most luxurious ones, ice fishing will become your favorite activity if you adopt Vexilar.
If, tomorrow morning, you go on a little fishing trip correctly using these 2 technological tools, your fishing successes will be greatly improved.
