When the ice is thick enough, Mainers head to the lakes and ponds and get set up to catch some fish (and, yes, beer is usually involved). We'll learn about the most effective methods for ice fishing, the best places to go, and what makes fishing through a hole in the ice an appealing family activity. And is climate change affecting the ice fishing industry in Maine?
