Tactics for Catching Pike Through the Ice - OutdoorHub: "Catching any fish through the ice is fun and a bit of a trip. Catching a huge northern pike through the ice is a serious thrill and something every angler should get to do at least once. There’s nothing like fighting one under the frozen surface, only to see that primitive, predator head fill up the hole and emerge from the icy depths. It’s what gets anglers out onto the frozen lakes. Gear up, folks—the hard water season is here."

Midwesterners love their fish with the white-tipped tails and luckily, there are several great walleye fishing destinations across the northern tier of the United States. Of course we couldn’t put every great walleye fishery on this list and the list is in no particular order. This list is nothing more than some top-notch fisheries that are fishing extremely well right now. Healthy fish populations, trophy fish potential and catch ability all factor into some of the best walleye water we have seen in our travels that in our opinion offer some of the best walleye fishing in the region."
