Lack of snow helps ice fishing

By Bill Bartusek

Though many are sad because of the lack of snow, area anglers celebrate. The cold weather, coupled with little or no snow, is a great combination for lake ice. Right now most area lakes sport about 15 inches of good ice. It’s a great start and it should continue throughout the rest of the angling season.

This scenario also leads to pretty good angling success. I think this is directly influenced by the lack of snow. People are able to stay very mobile. They are driving everything the own onto the ice. Travel is pretty safe and easy because of the lack of snow.
