After ice fishing for the past month, I figured it was time to change things up and go try to wrangle a few Brown trout. The stretch of the Weber I fished today was as low as I've seen it in recent memory. On top of that, the water was milky making for poor visibility. It wasn't opptimal conditions, but I figured a few a few fish would still want to show up to the party.
I started out fishing my go-to swimbait for the first hour with not a lot of action. I would pick up a fish here and there, with long stretches in-between. It took some time to get dialed in and after a few adjustments on presentaion and switching to a lighter swimbait, it was on! It went from slow fishing to fast catching in a hurry.
