With the polar vortex pounding the north country there is
plenty of ice covering most bays and some broad portions of Lake Champlain.
Ice fishing conditions have been excellent!

New Vessels and Top Quality Gear, No Junk!
We offer first-class, low priced Lake Champlain fishing charters
on twin 2012 21' PolarKraft Outlander multi-species fishing vessels.
They're equipped with quiet, clean 115 horsepower four stroke outboards,
and state-of-the-art Minn Kota trolling motors, riggers and electronics.
We're properly equipped to troll, jig or power fish (cast).
Premium rods and reels are also provided.
Unlike the competition, our prices peak at $350 for an eight hour trip.
There are no confusing "rates packages", additional person add ons, or fuel surcharges.
$250 four-hour and $300 six-hour trips are also available.
Our stable, 8' wide, deep V hulls can easily accommodate parties of four people,
but we suggest three or fewer, for safety when casting, and for higher individual catch rates.
Group rates with multiple vessels are available.
Many wise clients have already reserved their dates!
