The Ice Fishing Season Is Officially Back On Despite Hiccups In The Weather
Ice fishing is almost a Michigan tradition for those who love to fish.
With the entire season depending on the safety of the ice, the season can be a bit short, or even non-existent. The case this year? Well a little bit of both.
The ice has finally froze over to a safe thickness. For those who don’t know, the ideal thickness for ice to be declared safe is about 4 to 5 inches. The weather this year has been a little tricky, but a local ice fisherman talked to us this week and gave his thoughts on how everything has been going.
“You know it’s been hit or miss this year,” says Matt Therrien, a seasoned ice fisherman “Ice conditions have been questionable.”
Therrien also says that February is also the slow month, and even though the ice is finally frozen over, the season dies down until March.
