There are only a few important factors when it comes to successful ice fishing and having a Nils Master lure is definitely one of them. Ice fishing is not as much about technique but about when and where you fish and what you fish with. You need to know the right lake, the right spot and of course, use the right lure. Nils Master works the best out of any lure. Avid Canadian ice fishermen claim it's the best kept secret.

Nils Master Lures

Nils Master is known for the vivid colours they choose when designing their lures and the company takes pride in that. They have done a lot of research and testing into their colour choice and it has paid off as Nils Master lures have been tested to be extremely successful over other lure brands. Nils Master jigs are heavier and the way the body of the lure is moulded and sculpted with exquisite fin detail is superior to other lure brands. The shape of the body and where the fins are placed makes them swim better with lifelike movements. Their lures may seem larger than other brands, but believe us, they really work.

Fishing Tips

Our most popular Nils Master lures used for ice fishing are our jiggers 3 and 4. When using a Jigger, you only need to put the minnow head on the middle trouble hook of the lure. You don't need to use the full body of the minnow as it's only used for scent and the lure takes care of the motion. The fish go after the head of the minnow as they are attracted to the smell and vibration of the lure. Spoons are another type of ice fishing lure. When fishing with spoons, you can use the full minnow as opposed to just the head.

You typically want to fish in 16 to 20 feet of water with your jig resting about 1 foot from the bottom of the lake. The best time to fish is during the preseason as the first ice is always best. However, it may be a bit more dangerous at the beginning of the season, as the ice isn't as thick. Some ice fishermen would agree that 2 inches of ice is a reasonable thickness to start ice fishing, where others are more comfortable with 4 inches of ice. So preseason start times can vary between fishermen according to their comfort level. As the season goes on, the fish become trickier to catch as they become more aware of humans and are skittish making them not as likely to bite. But not to worry, you'll still catch fish using Nils Master even later in the season.
