Ice Holes Full Episode Guide

  • Big money is on the line at the Fishing Extravaganza in Brainerd, Minn.

  • Only behind by one fish, Wob and Todd dig a giant ice hole hoping to hit the jackpot.

  • Wob's been fishing for 40 years and has all but one of his trophy fish on his wall, the one that escaped him. So the guys are helping Wob catch "The Giant," a legendary pickerel, so that he can display it.

  • The Sebago Derby, an ice-fishing competition on Maine's 45-square-mile Sebago Lake has $100,000 up for grabs. Wob and Todd have looked forward to this derby all winter, and even invite Josh their rival, to join the competition. Many hope the new Maine state record for the largest lake trout will come out of the lake, but tensions rise as time passes without a bite.

  • The guys go to the Great Meredith Rotary Ice Fishing Derby - the largest ice fishing derby in New Hampshire with cash prizes up to $15,000, over 6,000 entrants and a wild party. The event has some stiff competition, but the guys are confident. Wob is determined to break a curse and get on this derby's leaderboard - even if he has to fish through the night.

  • Wade invites Alex, Wob, Todd and Josh to Moosehead Lake for some togue fishing. They all wager their lucky charms, and whatever team catches the biggest togue wins them all. It's a merciless fight to victory with their most prized possessions on the line.

  • The guys get some time to relax on Lake Winnipesaukee. Rival Josh arrives with Scott "Donk" Goodale, a fisherman who is so good, he's practically one of Josh's gadgets. The guys can't help but compete even with a weekend off. The first team that catches three rainbow trout gets a gourmet dinner made by the losers.

  • The fishermen arrive at Lake Winnipesaukee, N.H., for the King of the Lake Derby, the season's first ice fishing derby. It's a mad dash to claim the best hunting grounds with $600 for the biggest catches.
