Ice Fishing Trio Find Good Fishing at Pablo Reservoir

The Captain and Kamp Cook took off on a ice fishing trip with the Macman, Dick Zimmer, from Zimmer Tackle.  They headed to Pablo Reservoir, a small body of ice just west of Pablo and south of Polson.

The ice conditions were good with about 8 inches. The fishing was slower than it had been in the previous days that the Macman had fished for perch but was still filled with enough activity to keep things fun.


The three of us fished from about 9am till 3:30 and used tackle that was provided by Zimmer Tackle. The top lure was by far the Trilobite (pictured on the left) that had two treble hooks on both ends (otherwise known as the Double Wammy).

We caught quite a few perch, enough big ones to take about 20 home for dinner, most however were a little on the small size. We also caught one Largemouth Bass. (pictured above)
