Nearly 30 years ago the technological advancements in ice fishing began with the sonar more commonly referred to as a flasher and a revolution began. Anglers were... able to see how deep they were fishing, structure and the fish react to their presentation.
Today most anglers take for granted going out and knowing what is going on beneath the ice, but fishing over heavy cover or deep weed beds have always been a problem for panfishermen. Sometimes you can't see your jig in thick weeds and it turns into a guessing game or you put on one of your biggest lures so you can see it.
Enter K&E Tackle's flat bottomed Tapiola Skandia Jig. The design is based on satellite technology that allows for maximum signal strength as similar sized jigs. Giving off a stronger signal allows you to turn down your gain and get better target separation on your sonar unit which will in turn thin the weeds out on your screen giving you a much cleaner return on your screen.
Aside from the strong signal, the flat design allows for a flutter on the fall and rise as you're jigging presenting a swimming movement that I find best to match up with a Maki plastic.
