2018 Ice Fishing Clinics

For over 15 years the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie has partnered with the educational staff of Presque Isle State Park to offer an Ice fishing clinic for the public free of charge. The last two years were warm and the ice was not safe for fishing. This year was different. We provide these clinics on East Waterworks Pond on Presque Islke and the ice was about 8 inches thick on the February 3rd. The day was beautiful with temperatures in the high 20's blue skies and sun. About 200 people came onto the ice where 25 volunteers helped them fish providing the poles and bait. There werre many fish caught including a couple of nice trout. The event was called "Snow Days" and there were many other events going on including crafts, cooking demos, ice safety equipment and horse drawn wagon rides.

This event was so successful and the ice conditions were still good so another clinic was offered on February 17th.This event was called Cabin Fever. The day was overcast around 32 degrees but not as well attended. 18 Sons volunteers worked with about 50 people. Both days provided fun for all including the volunteers

There were numerous kidís activities, ice carving demo, carriage rides and an ice fishing simulator by S.O.N.S. volunteers. Below are some photos of our volunteers who spent four hours in the cold and rain.
