Guides look to catch more during short season

Last week’s cold snap finally brought the conditions ice anglers in Door County have been looking forward to all season long. Without the frigid temperatures at the beginning of the season, ice fishing guides like Jeff Weatherwax struggled to find safe places to take clients. Now that business is beginning to pick up, Weatherwax is looking forward to productive trips no matter how long they may last.

Big fish have been lurking underneath the ice for lucky anglers, including a 58-inch sturgeon caught with Weatherwax just last week. Ice depths between four and fifteen inches are recommended if you plan on setting your tip-up depending on what kind of equipment you are bringing.
