The 9 Best Places To Go Ice Fishing In Alaska This Winter

Ice fishing is something many have only seen in photographs. In northern places, people who love fishing head out onto the thick, solid ice to battle the winter. They put up a tent, drill a hole in the ice and wait for the fish under the ice to seek the bait in the dark, cold water. This time honored Alaska tradition is a way of bonding during the long, cold hours of waiting for fish. But modern tents and heaters make ice fishing more of a luxurious party than a freezing chore. Try ice fishing this winter for a fantastic day trip in Alaska.
