Ice Fishing Trips in Minnesota

Ice Fishing Trips in Minnesota
Minnesota has many places to go ice fishing. Because the winter weather is so cold and lakes freeze, many resorts and businesses offer ice fishing trips for anglers who want to fish year-round. Ice fishing offers the angler the chance to catch perch, walleye and pike. Most areas or cities that have lakes offer ice fishing trips or vacations during the winter and have lodging facilities.
