Ice Fishing


Kids who have gotten hooked on fishing during the warm weather months might love to try ice fishing with a parent. Young children will probably get bored waiting for the fish to bite, so keep your outing short or just bring your older children. Always be sure that the ice is safe – at least 4 inches thick – and that temperatures have been below freezing for several days straight. Children, and even adults, should never ice fish alone in case of an emergency on the ice.
