Fishing That BIG.
Ice fishing is an experience you can build a vacation around. From snowmobiling to a remote lake or driving into a four-season resort. The winter scenery and wildlife will result in many fish tales around the hot stove. Ice fishing is an activity that everyone can enjoy in peaceful solitude, or with a group of family and friends. Within minutes of our cities and towns, you can access lakes filled with trout, walleye and northern pike, or participate in annual ice fishing derbies.
Anglers can be assured of an experience like no other. Cutting through layers of thick ice, a warm ice hut and peaceful surroundings. For a true northern experience, start planning your next ice-fishing trip here.
