Weather, Ice Conditions, And Ice Fishing Reality

Sunk Sled

Ice fishing in terrible weather is not an enjoyable experience.  And I’m not willing to take chances on iffy ice. So if the weather forecast on the day of your trip calls for frigid temperatures, gale-force winds, or a blizzard, I will cancel your trip and return your deposit. The same holds true if ice conditions are unsafe.  Safety and your physical well-being are my top priority.

Eskimo Ice ShackIce fishing is a physically demanding activity that involves lots of loading, hauling, and set up and teardown of gear. So if you come on a trip, you will be asked to pitch-in and help out a bit with these activities. Cooking on the Ice

I will provide two snowmobiles, a shelter, all the ice fishing gear and bait, along with all the cooking gear for a hot lunch. You will need a Maine fishing license and good winter gear and boots.   And depending on the trip, you might be asked to contribute to the hot lunch. We can discuss all of these things in detail on the lead up to your trip.
