Ice Fishing

There is something almost mystical about ice fishing

The frozen lakes may seem quiet in winter, but underneath that ice, the water is teeming with the best fish in the Northland: lake trout, rainbow trout, walleye, northern pike and panfish.

Your ice fishing tour starts at 9:00 am at Stone Harbor to get geared up. Then your guide takes you to one of the Gunflint Trail’s inland lakes where you trek across the ice until you find the best fishing hole. (We can’t give away all of our secrets, but you can bet that your guide has been spending plenty of time looking for where the fish are biting.) 

There’s no need to worry about the cold Minnesota wind because your guide brings along a portable ice house, heater, lunch and warm beverages. That means you’ll have plenty of time to relax and enjoy a day out on the ice.

Whether you are an experienced angler or brand new to this winter tradition, call us at 218-387-3136 to schedule a day of ice fishing.
