Winter season does not stop the avid fisherman from enjoying the craft of fishing. Using state-of-the-art gear and clothing, a fishing fanatic can experience everything in winter that a summer water sports lover might enjoy. In fact, many people find that the winter experience offers even more of what a journey like this can promise. The towns are less populated, the lake is much quieter covered in snow and ice, and the fish are just as plentiful. Ice fishing can and should be a calming, relaxing way to spend a day on the lake.
Using portable tents or in small sheds built for the sport, an ice fisherman can expect a warm, hospitable dwelling within which to take refuge from wind and weather. In a group or individually, ice fishing is a remarkable experience for both experts and novices alike. With a thermos of hot coffee or a snifter of warm schnapps and cocoa, the winter adventurer understands how to make the most of the experience. Geared up with just the right clothes, ice rods, a fire on the ice, and a Thermus full of a warm beverage of, ice fishermen boldly go where few have gone. The quiet solace of winter season offers tranquil, yet rugged experiences in nature. Many locals savor this time of year and while the tourists and snowbirds fly south to warmer climates, those who winter in Montana find themselves in the unique situation that only the solitude of winter can bring. Spending a day ice fishing makes even the simplest experiences seem profound; a hot shower, roaring fire, and warm meal await at the end of this day’s journey and the winter adventurer knows how to relish those experiences almost as much as the fresh fish.
