Articles : Become a Traveling Ice Angler by Dave Genz
Posted by Mike Potter on Nov 21, 2006 (1957 reads)

Being well traveled is a valued asset in many areas of life, and it’s definitely true in ice fishing. No matter how much time you spend on the water, if it’s always the same water, you can easily fall into a rut.

Early-ice fishing presents one of the truly grand opportunities of the year.

For one thing, fish have not been bothered much in the recent past by boating or fishing pressure. Few boats venture out in the gray of late fall on most waters. And as ice conditions begin to become walkable, many anglers are reluctant to be first to shuffle across the groaning, cracking surface.
