Ice Fishing Tours
We can't make it through the winter without fishing, so why not join us for a great winter experience? Try your luck with tip-ups and jigging for fish on some of Vermont's most scenic lakes with our guided instructional ice fishing tours. Throughout the winter we target many different species of fish in many different bodies of water. These species include Northern Pike, Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout. We will also pursue many other types of fish, including Brown and Rainbow Trout, Yellow Perch and many more. These trips are great for people who don't even know what ice-fishing is, or for an experienced ice-fisherman who is visiting and doesn't have any of their gear. We will show you our secret techniques to getting more fish on the ice both by jigging and use of tip-ups. We explain when to use which setup and when its best to use a combination of the two.

Available daily by reservation. 1 person - $295 for 4 hours, $70 for each additional person up to 5 people. 1 person - $355.00 for 6 hours, $80 for each additional person up to 5.
