Bad Medicine but no Jon Bon Jovi

6 posts in this topic

I have fished Bad Medicine during summer for the Rainbows and have had a great deal of fun catching them. Any hints or tips on catchin eyes through the ice? Clear, cold and deep water, where does a guy start?

Ive had luck with them on ice in about 20-25’ of water, I think it was more luck than skill that I caught them though. Find rock on bottom of course, and like any trout fish structures, they like cover. I like bad medicine lake…do you know how it got its name?

Thanks for the updates. Can you be more specific with technique? Dead stick or Jiggin? Size of bait? Type? A preferred color? Any tips like this is what I am looking for. I have heard that water that clear can be a real issue for getting eye's to bite. Does that lake usually have good ice during December?

Missed out on Bon Jovi as well. They opened up some terrible seats later in the day but I want to see them too --

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
