It seems my last several ice fishing blogs on the Northern Ontario Portal have struck a cord with anglers who are ice fishing for lake trout, walleye, yellow perch, black crappies, and splake across the entire, magnificent, northern two-thirds of the province.

To the point where I've been fielding questions of late about the type of line I prefer to spool on my reels in cold weather, whether or not I like to use fluorocarbon in the winter and how I attach my leaders to my main lines.

So many ice anglers have asked these great ice fishing questions that I thought it would be fun to answer them using the following short video, in which I also demonstrate how to tie the magnificent uni-knot to solve your ice fishing line connection woes.

Now, grab a coffee, put up your feet and enjoy.
