Night ice fishing

Postby jshow89 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 6:42 pm

Just looking to pick some people's brains, this cold weather has been making my work schedule (hvac) very hectic and I haven't been getting time to get out on the ice much, I think I could get out more if I can find a place to do some night fishing, I typically just target perch and pike which I find don't bite very much once the sun goes down, just wondering if there is any ice fishing I could be doing at night? I think I have heard that guys catch crappies out on the big Rideau at night but don't know for sure. I'm down near the St.lawrence so about 30 mins or so from Rideau ferry, just looking for somewhere that other guys will be out in the general area for safety reasons to get the feel for being on the ice at dark

Fish for Ling (Burbot) on the Ottawa River. They are huge, a blast to catch and they bite all night. I often start catching them about 1 hour past sunset until just before dawn. Half to full moon seems best. Glow jig and bit of dead minnow and your all set.
