Out-of-the-area Ice anglers are inclined to visit Door County in the tourism months after experiencing ice fishing on Green Bay, according to one professional fishing guide. JJ Malvitz says the chances that anglers revisit the area after the ice fishing season are good. He says it can really add to the local economy.
Malvitz says ice anglers need to take precautions when heading out on the ice regardless if ice conditions are ideal like this weekend. Taking a GPS, dressing appropriately and fishing with a group of other ice anglers are a few of the tips Malvitz suggests before venturing out on any body of water.
