Its game on for Vermont Ice Fishing trips....Trout and Bass season opens this weekend...there is at least 5 inches of ice pretty much everywhere...but the places I fish currently have 6 to 12"...the saying I live by: there are bold ice fishermen...and there are old ice fishermen...but there isn't old bold ice fishermen...I am never the first guy out and I won't be the last guy in the late season either....I scouted hard today and its GAME ON!

After the melt down , rain and warm end of last week and weekend....all the snow on the lake is gone or settled...last nights cold temp locked up the remaining slush.....We are back in business to ice fish and wander around freely again. There is a TON of ice so I am very confident we will be ice fishing throughout the month of March. Late ice can be awesome...thanks for the view, I do have plenty of openings...be safe and stay tuned!

Currently, the conditions on top of the ice is very sloppy. We have 14- 24 inches of ice statewide, but there is also 12 to 25 inches of snow on top of it!....the 25 inches would be drifts but here on LSC we have and honest 16 inches of snow. The main issue with snow and ice fishing is the water and slush it creates....these conditions change over night at times.....so when I tell you WATERPROOF WINTER BOOTS....here are examples of what I mean. These are insulated rubber boots made by Ranger. I wear these most of the time!
