As winter tightens its grip, ice fishermen across the North are gearing up in anticipation of another fantastic hardwater season. To stoke that fire, here’s a highlight clip from the 2014 NAFC Ice Fishing Challenge, sponsored by Frabill.
Eight anglers from across the country arrived at NoDak Resort on Minnesota’s Lake Winnibigoshish in January for three days of fishing. The tables turned, however, when the mercury dropped to sub-zero levels and the Arctic wind blew so hard it drove the fishermen to seek shelter in wood-frame fish houses. But even that didn’t dampen their sense of adventure, or the action.
