What you'll do

After determining the target species for our trip, we will meet at a local pond or lake and hike across the ice to a good spot. I will immedietly set up a pop-up shelter with a propane heater (depending on the weather). After everyone is comfortable we can go over the use of tip ups and different techniques and presentations for jigging. We will then drill holes and begin fishing. I will always be available to help unhook fish and reset lines, along with answering any questions you may have. Breakfast/lunch sausages will usually be available. All the gear needed for fishing will be provided, including live bait.
