Warmer weather this week may be slowing ice formation on area waters, but it is not cooling the enthusiasm for angling this winter. JJ Malvitz of JJ’s Guide Service says calls for reservations continue to be strong as anglers plan for their ice fishing trips to Door County, usually in the third or fourth weekend in January. As anxious as he is to begin his 10th year guiding anglers on the ice, he knows the time will come.
Malvitz says reservations usually pick up as the temperatures drop because anglers finally realize winter is finally here. That being said, he recommends reserving trips sooner rather than later because the demand often exceeds the number of guides available in Door and Kewaunee Counties.
