    We caught some big lake trout in Horse Lake while learning how to jig for them. Time for a bigger net. Here's our video:

    Nice video! We fished Horse lake many years ago for Kokanee, wish we had tried jigging!

    Such a good video, thanks for sharing. Two questions for you if you dont mind sharing.
    1. What type of boat is that? 14ft smokercraft alaskan?
    2. Do you mark fish on your depth sounder before you start jigging an area?

    We have a 14ft Lund with a 15hp Mercury. I love the split benches in the back.

    I mark the fish on my fish finder then send my jig down.

    Thanks for the reply, really liking your Facebook page. Ive had a 12ft smokercraft for 10yrs but am just getting serious into kokanee fishing. Got my downriggers setup, two new rods (luhr jensen & velocity ninja), a pile of tackle, just need some reels and days off lol

    I'm glad you're enjoyed our Facebook group. We love promoting kokanee fishing in British Columbia. Afterall, who doesn't love to eat fresh landlocked sockeye salmon? The reels and days off will definitely come in due time. It took us a while to build up our gear to what we have now. There will always be something you "want." Usually, if you're like me, you'll have everything you need. Time to plan an ice fishing trip for kokanee now :)
