For many hardcore ice anglers, the challenge of chasing species like largemouth bass, burbot, tullibee, whitefish, or trout is a seasonal priority.

Ice fishing is a unique and exciting way to experience the outdoors. It can be a great way to spend time with friends and family, and it can also be a great way to catch some unique fish. In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the unique fish that can be caught on ice, and the gear and techniques needed to catch them.

The HD 7i is a seven-inch high definition screen with a 1080p HD camera. It has 75 feet of cable, and is HDMI compatible, making it great for wheelhouses. It’s perfect for finding fish and structure, and can be a lot of fun for the whole family.

Catch Covers Slush Bucket

The Catch Covers Slush Bucket is a great tool for wheelhouse anglers. It can be set on top of the hole when drilling, and all the slush will go into the bucket. This keeps the wheelhouse dry and clean, and makes it easier to move around the wheelhouse without having to worry about slush.

Clam Fish Trap Nanook XL

The Clam Fish Trap Nanook XL is a great house for two anglers. It features a 600 denier shell to help cut the wind, and multiple doors for easy access. It also folds over and collapses for easy transportation.

Tuned Up Custom Rods Commander

The Tuned Up Custom Rods Commander is a great rod for burbot, walleye, or any big fish. It comes in sizes from 32 inches up to 38 inches, and features a solid carbon blank with recoil guides. It has a sensitive tip that loads into some good backbone, making it great for catching big fish.


Burbot are a unique fish that can be caught on ice. They are generally caught after dark, but certain times of the year they can be caught during the day. They are found in the southern range of Minnesota, and are becoming a popular game fish species. They fight hard and can grow to be quite large, making them a great catch for ice anglers.

The best way to catch burbot is to use a big, heavy rod with a size 2500 reel. Mono line is best, as it handles heavy lures and sheds ice well. A swivel should be used to prevent line twists, and a 14 pound fluorocarbon leader should be used. The best areas to find burbot are near big flats, with a sharp wall drop between 20 and 30 feet.


Ice fishing can be a great way to catch some unique fish. From burbot to walleye, there are plenty of fish that can be caught on ice. With the right gear and techniques, anglers can have a great time out on the ice and hopefully come home with a great catch.
