Ice Ice Maybe; Ice Fishermen Play Waiting Game


Following last season's unusually warm winter, many ice fishermen are getting anxious to hit the frozen waters of Sturgeon Bay and Green Bay to enjoy another season. But they'll have to wait a bit longer before dropping those jigs into the water.  

Gary Nault of Gary's Guide Service in Sturgeon Bay says skim ice has formed in Sturgeon Bay, Little Sturgeon, and other areas, but not enough to think about venturing out.

Nault says temperatures forecast to be in the teens and 20s will help thicken the ice, but he says ideal ice-making temperatures are at 0 degrees or below. 

When anglers are able to finally start drilling holes, Nault says whitefish as usual will be on the top of the wish list, with perch close behind.

Nault says each year also brings with it a slew of new equipment.

"Always more and more stuff every year," says Nault. "New jigs and jigging poles, the ice augers are developing with propane and stuff like that, so it's a good chance while we're waiting for ice to visit your local sport shop and see just what's new and get some new equipment so you're ready."

Nault will be hosting a weekly ice fishing report on starting the first weekend in January.
