So as winter keeps revving up in the Northeast some people are just simply sitting back wishing for spring. Then the others are revving up like winter also, with their augers!! 🤣❄ Setting their traps and shacks up for the next few " frozen water" months ahead . As always a reminder to be safe on the ice. Obviously the farther north you go the faster the ice has frozen. There is way more ice in Arroostook County than York County Maine. Yet some smaller bodies of water freeze faster.
Just be safe check your local ice reports with Fish & Game or check with the "locals"!
The ice Derbys are in full swing ! Get out and enjoy! Grab some ice flies from Lakeside Flies and jig the shallows for some pan fish.
Or the deeper depths for those big lakers.Remember fish are lethargic in the winter so their appetite won’t be as large and they will be less aggressive. So, a smaller, more mellow fly is sometimes key. Ice flies is a favorite way to fish in the winter, and the perfect way to get fish to bite! Try it! You'll be surprised how many fish will swim by that shiner and strike a fly morsel.
