Feb 2017 Update

After a start and stop...we are back on the ice! There are old icefishermen and bold icefishermen BUT there aren't many bold old icefishermen...I NEVER take chances with clients on sketchy ice. Thanks for the view!

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 safe and stay tuned!
