Setting a Net Under the Ice

Published by at 9:48 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

An instructional video on how to setting a net under the ice. This is just one of several possible methods, but it’s the method I most commonly use.

    It would be much easier and faster to saw a line through the ice and slip a thin fishing line through the saw kerf. Then use that to set the rope and the net.

    That might work if you have a chainsaw, which I don’t. And if the ice is thick enough, even that won’t work. I like the creative thinking though.

    I’ve seen pictures of eskimo setting nets this way, but by chopping a narrow line in the ice with an axe and then do as you say. I would only consider this if I didn’t have trees available though. Takes a lot longer (I know, because I tried once).
