Hey I hope everyone had a great season. I feel kinda dumb asking this, but does the bay freeze over enough to ice fish in the winter? I don't need to bring my truck out there, just wanna try something new this winter, but I live in the Twin Cities now so it'd be quite the hike just to go look har, har-har. I grew up in Shell Lake, WI, but I don't recall ever being up north, north in the winter. Thanks for any response.
