The polar vortex that sent wind chills plummeting and closed schools has been a blessing for local fishing guides. The colder temperatures have made for ideal ice fishing conditions and J.J. Malvitz of J.J.'s Guide Service says that's drawing dozens of customers at a time.
Malvitz takes his customers out on to Sturgeon Bay in heated ATV's where they fish from heated shanties. And Malvitz says they're coming for a fishing trip that can't be found anywhere else.
Malvitz says the white fish stocks started drawing ice fishing enthusiasts to Sturgeon Bay about ten-years ago. He says that interest just keeps growing.
