In a year when it’s hard to find an ice fishing boat, Jordan Fisher has decided to take a gamble.
He’s heading out to a frozen lake in southern Ontario, hoping to catch big fish.
Fisher said he’s never been more confident about his chances of catching anything fishy.
“We’ve had a lot of fish come through,” he said.
“We’ve got a lot, and a lot that’s going to eat our boat.”
There’s been a lot.
We have a lot going on here.
“Fisher says his boat is a lot bigger than a typical ice fishing rig.
He has a full crew and an extra crew to help him make it through the frigid waters.”
He’s using a kayak, which has a deep canister that he filled with ice. “
It’s a very cold day, and you can’t fish, so you’ve got to be careful.”

His goal is to get at least 50 kilograms of ice.
Fisher says the ice is thin and has a good texture, so it’s easy to scoop out.
He then uses the ice to form a net around his kayak and a plastic bag with the fish he’s trying to catch.
Fisher also has a net of ice to help pull the fish out of the water.
“The ice itself is very good for getting things out of water,” he added.
“The fish are getting pulled up and they get pushed back up and out of it, so that’s how you get them out.”
Fisher also used a net on the lake to help his lure catch fish out.
“It’s really effective,” he told CBC News.
“You’ve got the ice, you’ve put the fish in the ice and then you’ve added a net and you’ve just got to make sure that the net doesn’t break and you catch the fish, that’s the hard part.”
Fisher said the net is designed to catch a variety of fish.
“I don’t have to use the same type of net as others do,” he noted.
“There are some big fish that you’ve gotta use a little bit different net than others.”
Fisher told CBC he had been fishing for more than 40 years, but said he has always been very careful.
“Every time you catch something, you’re going to have to make a new decision, and that’s what we’re doing here,” he laughed.
Fisher plans to have a full year of filming and filming on ice fishing in the summer of 2019.
He also plans to film more fishing trips and will be on the ice for a month in August and September, and then in September, to film fishing trips.
“And then I’m going to make my last one in December,” he joked.
“But I don’t know.”
