Kids love to fish!

Kids love to fish! During the summer months in Minnesota it's easy to get them started. Pick up a fishing pole, a few hooks, a bobber some live bait and head to the nearest lake shore or fishing dock. As they get older you can send them off on their own for hours of fun and memories to share.  In Minnesota cold temperatures come and the lakes freeze over. Now what? If you’ve never set foot on the ice, the idea of taking your kids ice fishing  can be truly daunting.

How do we know if the ice is safe? Ice is never 100% safe. We fish lakes we are familiar with, talk to local anglers and bait & tackle shops before heading out on the ice. As well as taking other safety precautions.
How do they stay warm while ice fishing? We will teach them know how to stay warm. 
How do they catch a fish through the ice? We will teach tips and techniques on how to catch fish.
What equipment do they need to start ice fishing? We have all the gear needed including; shelters (portables and permanent), electronics (fish locaters and underwater cameras), fishing poles, live bait and heat :)
