Deep freeze warms up ice fishing on Sturgeon Bay

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.
