The lake is also home to largemouth bass, northern pike, and walleye.
To start ice fishing, you’ll need to drill a hole in the ice and set up your fishing gear. This typically includes a fishing rod, reel, line, bait, and a portable shelter to keep you warm and dry. See more below about ice fishing equipment rentals at Coadys’ POV. When ice fishing, be patient and wait for a bite – when you feel a tug on your line, reel it in slowly to avoid breaking the line.
Once you’ve set up your equipment, it’s time to start fishing! The best time to catch fish is usually early in the morning or late in the evening, when the fish are most active. After interviewing an ice fisher at Coadys’ POV Resort on North Twin Lake, they shared that the fish are also very active when there’s a big snowfall with low wind.
