Let’s Go Ice Fishing!

This fishing blog is dedicated to the little understood, little respected, sport of ICE fishing. A lot has changed since the days of Grumpy Old Men and old farts sitting outside in the cold upon five-gallon buckets all day long. New techniques and technology have transformed this once “nothing better to do” winter activity into something many anglers have a true passion for. I know, I helped make it happen.

My name is Mitch Bennis, I’ve enjoyed and worked in the ice fishing industry here in Central Minnesota for the majority of my life. I’m a huge fan of the sport and love to spread the joy to others. Once you catch the bug of Ice Fishing, you’ll be hooked for life!

If you live in or will be visiting a region with good ice fishing conditions, my blog is here to help you learn ice fishing tips & techniques, find the local tackle shops and fishing guides, and show the world how great your ice fishing experiences have been.

So if you’re into ice fishing, or would maybe like to be, please enjoy the information and resources within these pages. And expect more cool ice fishing  stuff to show up over the next months.

Also, I invite you to submit your videos, photos and ice fishing articles. And please comment on my articles! I am looking forward to a conversation!

All the best,

  1. I grew up in north central Minnesota. Ice fishing with my dad was the highlight of the winter season. Now living in SE Wisconsin I haven’t been out on the “hard water” five times in the last ten years. Mostly due to health problems. But I am feeling better now and I am starting to get the urge to give it a try again. I still have all my gear.

  2. I love icefishing, me and my dad always spent some quality time on the lakes.We both loved fishing for pike especially on the Upper Red Lake, man those were great times.
