How to Catch a Trout with a Mouse Trap (Ice Fishing): Greg builds an ice fishing set line with a mouse trap and hikes around the local Rocky Mountain lakes, drilling holes in the ice, until his contraption starts hooking trout!

Greg is a self-taught survivalist from Canal Flats, British Colombia, who, since he was a boy, has read nearly every book on the topic. When he is not out in the wilderness, he is a professional dry-waller. He started his first bow drill fire when he was thirteen and spent the next forty years learning bushcraft and studying plants and edibles. He has even developed some of his own survival techniques and is a skilled hunter with both a bow and a slingshot.

  1. Would you catch bigger fish with a rat trap ? Great idea !!! You are as forgetful as I am. Fun video. A bucket full of thumbs up.

  2. Who would have thought!? Nice job man, that's some McGiver thinking right there.👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👏👏👏👏👏👏

  3. I subscribed today. Keep up the great attitude Greg. Refreshing bush craft at work. Fun watch. Many thanks.

  4. Now try doing it filming the whole hole without editing from the time the trap sets and you reel the fish in. I respectfully call B.S. on that trap catch.

  5. What I would give to come up and visit with you before pass on and go fishing . Oh well I can dream can't I ? This brings memories of when I was a youngster and I miss it . Thanks a lot for sharing brother. 👍

  6. Do you think that application with the mouse trap will work in a non frozen environment if set up right?

  7. No one is confused seeing this guy in the Bush. The confusion comes is when he’s near his computer lol jk
