Vermont Ice fishing season for Bass and Trout

Vermont ice fishing season for Trout and Bass opens this coming weekend Jan.18th....The ice conditions are excellent. there is 10 to 12 inches of ice almost everywhere. The meltdown and rain we had this last weekend really didn't hurt anything. Some bank edges are tender so be careful getting on and off the ice. I plan on using a plank to get on just to protect the edge (bank) I use. Stay safe everyone, thanks for the view....I will post hero shots after this weekend.

Vermont Ice Fishing has begun!

I am NEVER the first out on the ice....I will not take clients out on the ice without it being 6 inches thick...GAME ON! My spots have 9 to 12 inches of good black ice...
the mark is 6 inches....there is at least 9 maybe 10 inches at my Bass / Pike target....I didn't spend much time out there today because the wind chill was BRUTUAL....tomorrow I plan on making my foot print on some spots and fishing most of the day...thanks for the view and please stay tuned!
