3 Days Ice Fishing in Alaska – Burbot Accumulate and Cook dinner.
Luke here the outdoor Boys YouTube channel today we're here in Lake Louise Alaska and we're ice vision hey we're not quick but we're here I just realized something we don't have.
Your snow suit oh my gosh uh give daddy a moment to think about this hold on man we got a little problem here what I forgot Tommy's snowsuit it's heated at the ice shack right right yes I I brought an extra code I think I might be able to pull that off okay so we put them in the code I'll cover them.
In hand warmers with shove them in the sleeping bag and we can get them transported to the ice jacket does that seem reasonable that seems reasonable I'm not a bad parent fish if I do that okay not that's really not good that is correct Ransom it is really not good well I got your.
S there's no super you want goggles well guys we're here at the point Lodge in Lake Louise and I'm here with Patrick with Chase and Tails Guide Service here and uh we're excited to go catch some big fish we were here about what is it about a year ago yeah almost a year ago yeah yeah had a great time there are some monster lake trout.
In here and burbit and other things and uh we're gonna be spending two nights three days here on the lake it's gonna be pretty awesome yeah looking forward to it foreign are you okay I can't feel my legs but I'm okay here we are.
Middle Lake Louise it is a balmy warm 12 degrees outside so it's almost 50 degrees warmer than the last time we were here all right guys check it out we've got some ice shacks here got a little bench here to hang out and we got the holes right down here a Big Buddy Heater even some room for sleeping bags boys get tired they can take naps.
We could even camp out here if we want maybe two feet yes is that electric electric oh it's electric dude big Hooks and big lures for big fish the lake trout are the size of salmon and bigger they're huge oh did you bring ice in a cooler for your fish I don't think we need that I think they'll be ice just fine it was good all.
Right yeah we'll be good some white fish white fish that I caught yep it's like that that little thing right here is an electronic light that turns on when it hits water flashes Green in there oh yeah yeah you got a little green flash that's it oh look look at these little rod holders here so we stick that in there.
We can leave that one now and go to another hole and when it gets hit we won't run over there and set the hook foreign hit the bottom and then kind of Bounce It Up and Down off the bottom a few times and let it sit on or fishing on the edge of a slope so.
We're getting progressively deeper and deeper the farther away from the shack we go but we got it staggered so we can fish at different depths and kind of see where the fish are Tommy how you doing you staying warm good there's something on there come on top is your Rod you know what that is Tom.
What that's a bourbon there's a bourbon look at that there we go my very first bourbon they're kind of like a eel like some people call them eel pod freshwater Cod they get much bigger than this I think it's kind of about an average size what you think yeah that's about average they.
Really look a lot like the Japanese catfish there we go oh nice get him flattened out and Frozen up oh Jake's Jake's got a fish I think Jake got one in the ice shack you guys got one look at that it's a nice fish what do you want a picture.
Just like that perfect here hold up look at me there we go it was a pretty sweet setup we've got rods and rod holders in a big circle all around us at different depths and they've got alarms on them and we could just sit out here and keep an ear out for the alarm and run and go get fish.
Boys can warm up in the ice shack and and the best part is I didn't have to rig everything up and set it all off look at that Ransom Hustle oh yeah there we go yep it's nice and smooth now yeah the beautiful bourbon.
Whoa I don't think there's anything on it you guys gotta ride the snow machine a little bit all right you can see the sun over there on the horizon it's uh go to set in about two hours it's almost 2 p.m so we've got to.
Get ready for night time it gets dark really quick in the winter time here I jerked that right out of his mouth we'll set that back see if we get him you guys doing okay in here are you guys having fun though yeah it's warm in here I'm gonna step outside and eat my lunch oh hello.
At a time oh yeah I heard that alarm go off I just go oh that is a nice one look at that nice bourbon I think that's the biggest one we've seen you know what all right that's nice.
And I did it inside last time we were out here we caught all lake trout I was like oh man I really want to catch a bourbon Patrick's like I got you this time that door shut every time I try to pull out my uh my lunch this verbit cup is it Cornish pasty it's a British pastry I got kind of a non-traditional one this one's got uh.
Apples raisins pork and little nutmeg and cinnamon smeared some bacon fat in there too because Bacon fat makes everything better Hey Jake we gotta get you a fish buddy well the sun's starting to set traditionally that's a good time to catch lake trout so who knows we might start hooking up.
Some Lakers come on Jacob come on come on Jake can you reel it is oh look at that it's a bourbon good job Jake do you like that yeah all right we keep.

you can feel it in your nose when it's negative 20 it makes your boogers freeze come on guys into the cabin let's get you dressed let's see joke we got about five minutes out in the cold before my camera dies it needs to.
Get reheated and uh my fingers got maybe 10. got some white fish this is not tile foreign let me know if you get anything okay let me go set up the other stuff and negative 20 the holes ice over very quickly so when they ice over the fish can be tugging and nothing will happen.
To the rod you won't even know it we gotta keep the holes clear now it's going to be a full-time job thank you one nice thing about the weather you don't need a cooler you guys having fun awesome I'm happy to break the ice out of the holes every 10 minutes.

Oh look at the head on that thing let's pull that puppy out look at that nice bourbon look at that that was good oh you may have noticed Patrick's not with us today we decided to hire his full-blown guide service for the first day and then just rent the gear for the second and it's working out really nice.
You know we're catching fish on our own and it's just uh just a fun kind of different experience if you guys want to do this yourself I'll put a link down in the description below to chasing tails Guide Service Hey Jake how you doing are you keeping warm all the way out here you can see you oh.

And if I keep my camera down my shirt and under my armpit it stays warm enough where I can film back into my armpit what do you think bourbon or Laker I'm gonna guess perfect oh oh Dan wow that's the biggest lake turn of the trip so far look at that nice lake trout Dan oh that's nice Dad now our hands are so cold yeah Dan.
Didn't even know that one was on there he was just kicking the ice out and uh once he did that he found the fish that Sun's getting low must be 2 P.M foreign let's check out the boys and see how they're doing everyone's rocking out to fly to the.

Snow getting off the snow machine that was so cold very many times well guys let me unload the snow machine and then we'll get it ready and go to dinner okay your burger all right come on in quickly quickly come on in.
Come on it's negative 24 outside and the only thing keeping us from hypothermia is uh this little space heater right here it's uh it's still real nippy in here so we're gonna get in our sleeping bags we're gonna cuddle up under some blankets and you guys want to watch the movies.
Oh good morning well we're all awake oh yeah oh there's the generator well the generator just died I think it's a side that we should get packed up and go home is when you do this oh we got a little bit of snow coming.
Down got a fair amount of it last night look yeah feels like it's above zero right now it's actually quite nice this we're gonna ratchet strap our fish to the back of a car yeah some people strap deer to the front of their trucks we strap bourbon to the back of an SUV yeah that's that's good that's good.
Burbot strapping right there good stuff you go the wrong way Jacob well Patrick we had a great time thank you so much you're welcome yeah listen guys if you're ever in Alaska and you're Lake Louise and you want to go to do some awesome ice fishing check out Patrick's Guide Service chasing tails I'm gonna put link down in the video description.
Below all right man I'll see you guys next time we'll be back what are we at three degrees now foreign well it took a few hours but the bourbon are thawed out and I think it's time to Flame them up yeah they're still a little stiff but I.
Think we can make it work let's get on the verb it's really thin and they have almost no scales they just have these tiny little scales so you could fry up the skin and eat it just like you could salmon and it wouldn't be a big deal at all right nice chunk of belly meat.
there's no y bones to worry about so this isn't like a pike or a lot of other fish okay just gonna go ahead and stick that in the fridge and then tomorrow we're gonna have a little bit of a dinner party we're gonna have some friends over and.
Uh we're gonna cook up those bourbon foreign foreign throw some fish in there load it up with as much as you want got the sweet chili.
Sauce on there I like to smear it on the bread float up as many veggies as you do or you don't want go for it remember if you hate it just spit it all out off camera it's a nice clean white meat I mean it's um it's not as firm and Flaky as halibut but it's you know it's a pretty simple straightforward white meat it's not as.
Muddy as catfish so that works out pretty good I like that what do you think did you like it was it good thing is good all right well listen do you guys enjoy the bourbon yeah yeah yeah good well listen hopefully you guys enjoyed watching this as much as we enjoyed catching them Liz if you guys want to see more videos from the outdoor.
