Take a Kid Ice Fishing
There are lots of lakes to choose from when it comes to ice fishing on the Gunflint Trail. Come stay at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters and take advantage of the opportunity to ice fish for free January 13-15th.
Every January, Minnesotans celebrate the Take-A-Kid Ice Fishing Weekend (TAKIF). This year from January 13 to 15, Minnesota residents can fish or spear fish for free when accompanied by a child age 15 or under.
A number of TAKIF events will introduce participants to the sport of ice fishing and provide families with information about ice fishing topics including choosing the right clothing to keep warm and dry, basic safety gear for ice fishing, and how to avoid accidents on the ice.
The Take Kids Ice Fishing page on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website has great information and helpful tips, such as how to make a set of ice rescue claws.
