From 3 or 4 years of ice fishing with my vexler i found it to be a handy tool frm my Exp... of ice fishing \.|\
Ok say your fishing 40 feet of water you
would see A big red line from A to Z ...
look more closely @ your vexeler study it hard now what do you see ??? could you see a very very faint yellow line in your <red-Bottom> in between A to Z ?? or a very faint yellow line to just in the Red but just in the red on the left side allmost where the red ends & sometimes there is no faint yellow line ok @ that time no fish is there Ok but a lot of times there is Ok through my exp.. of icefishing most of the time if you see this it means a pot belly perch LOL or jack perch is down there looking for worm's or fanning the mud or just resting its pot belly is touching the end mud bottem !!!!!!!!!!!!!
so now with that in mind place your football jig or other type just almost to the faint yellow line & whip your jig up & down & all around & soon after you do that it will change to yellow green orange then red be ready to set the hook yesterday did that got a 13 incher & many other times have done it to so next time out on ice fishing trip try it & see what happens you will get more fish in the bucket dont know much about other fish but for pot belly perch AKA Jack perch it works 100%
hope i helped somebody put more fish in the bucket
