Why Hire A Green Bay Whitefish Ice Fishing Guide?

Whether you’re ice fishing for whitefish for the first time or if you’re an experienced angler, having local knowledge and expertise can be invaluable. Conditions constantly change on the bay. If a whitefish ice fishing location was hot last year, it doesn’t mean this year will be the same. If you want to head home with a decent catch, hiring a Trophy Ice Fish guide is the best way to catch a lot of whitefish on Green Bay. 

Looking at the numbers, according to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, in the winter of 2019-20, sport anglers (unguided) spent nearly 180,000 hours ice fishing for whitefish compared to just over 28,000 hours for guided anglers. Although unguided sport anglers caught more fish overall, the catch rate for guided anglers was 0.98 whitefish per hour whereas the unguided fishermen and women caught only 0.78 whitefish per hour. The facts are there, a local Green Bay ice fishing guide understands the area and will put you where the action is.

 How Do You Ice Fish For Whitefish In Green Bay?

The standard Green Bay whitefish rig features a bare red hook threaded on the mainline and positioned above a small barrel swivel. A gold jigging spoon or ¼ ounce lead weight is fastened to a leader about 15 inches below the barrel swivel. Waxworms are hooked onto the red hook and lure below it.
The line sinks to the bottom where the whitefish are feeding. The baited hook is free to slide up and down the line while the lure stays on the bay bottom. Then the angler moves the rod in an up and down jigging motion until a fish bites or the hook becomes snagged on a quagga mussel.

Great Lakes Whitefish: White Gold

The lake whitefish is a species of freshwater whitefish native to the Northern United States, including the Great Lakes, and Canada. Known for its delicious flavor, the ‘humpback’ fish has a small head compared to the width of the rest of its body. The snout overhangs the short lower jaw, giving it a distinctive overbite. The small posterior dorsal adipose fin makes the whitefish discernable from other species, such as the mooneye.
As the name suggests, the coloration is white or silver that fades into pale green or brown near the dorsal area. The tail fin is forked, making the lake whitefish a swift swimmer when chased. The average weight of a lake whitefish is two pounds and they can grow up to 31 inches.
