Early Bird Fishing Guide: Fishing Tips, Cooking Tips & Ice Out Predictions


Early Bird Fishing with Jeff Sundin

Jeff Sundin is our Early Bird Fishing Guide, he joins Heidi Holtan on the Thursday Morning Show. This week they talk about the warm weather melting snow, allowing people easier access to the lakes for ice fishing. Jeff calls this the beginning of the season. He shares his plans for fishing the rest of the season. We get tips for tullibee fishing. What depths to fish them, the lures to use and ways to cook them. Smoked, pickled, broiled or barbecuing are all good ways. We also hear tips on fishing pike at Lake of the Woods.

Heidi asks Jeff for his prediction on ice out this year. He gives April 27, 2022 and uses Leech Lake for his prediction.
