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.
I have been an avid ice fisherman in Vermont for over six years and have always enjoyed teaching different fishing techniques and methods to newcomers. As a graduate of the University of Vermont with a degree in Fisheries Biology, I am able to use my knowledge of fish habits and behaviors to target specific species more effectively and efficiently.
Sausages (breakfast or brats)
Ice picks, tip ups, jigging rods, live and artificial baits, pop up shanty, auger
Most of our fishing will be done on lakes and ponds in central and northern Vermont. Lake/pond choice will be determined based on the target species.
