Fishing & Boating in the Northwoods

Ice Fishing

Just like “soft-water” angling, ice-fishing can get to be very expensive — if one wants to acquire all of the toys that are available for the sport. All those toys are not necessarily mandatory in order to have some fun.

I got my start sitting on a bucket with a small pole and bucket of minnows. Sure, it helps to have a portable shanty, a Vexilar flasher, a power ice auger and an underwater camera. But for me, it’s more the joy of escaping the winter blues and cabin fever…

Fishing since the age of eight.  Seriously writing since the age of 16. Chef and foodie from the age of 22 years… and counting. So much to learn and so little time. I have enjoyed every minute of it all.  Whether on the water (where I like it best), in the kitchen, or at the keyboard, churning out content, I feel like I have found my place.  I am sharing it with you in the hope that some of what I love to do will rub off on you. I hope to see you On the Lake!
