The CTJ Hunting and Fishing Center will host the DNR Outdoor Skills Academy’s Ice Fishing Event & Hard Water School. This class will cover everything from how to set up equipment, how and where to fish, when to be out on the ice, ice safety, and rules & regulations. The main focus of this class will be techniques for pan fish, walleye, and pike. We will spend the first part of the day gearing up and after lunch we will hit the ice and spend the rest of the day fishing.

After dark we will meet back at the CTJ Center to go over the days catch and to review what everyone learned. We will then head to dinner. There will be a warming hut, augers, and some shanties (available on a first come first serve basis) provided, but we encourage you to bring your own equipment, if possible. We encourage the whole family to come.  You will be responsible for paying for your own dinner.

Sunday is available as an optional fishing day, if you are interested in fishing on Sunday please let us know. The cost for this Class is $30.00 Includes Lunch, bait and terminal tackle. Register here.
