AbstractIn the Canadian prairie winter fishing is carried on under the ice with gill nets. Fishermen some years ago developed the jigger which not only saves cutting so many holes but also reduces the time consumed in setting the gear for it is reported that with the jigger a line can be run 50 fathoms in 3 minutes after the first hole is cut. This device would be useful to many Maritime province fisherman.
