Ice Fishing Alberta
A lot of people come to Banff and Calgary in the winter time, and want to try different activities in addition to the usual skiing and snowboarding. Walking around on frozen water, drilling a hole in it, and pulling fish out is a completely foreign concept to most, and is a great experience to try at least once in your life. Ice fishing oportunities are plentiful around both Banff and Calgary, and we provide all the gear and instruction to get a couple of friends, or families out on the ice. Banff, Alberta, Canada has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world to ice fish, and the fishing around Calgary is convienient, and offers different spicies and good numbers of fish to catch. Whether you are traveling with your family or by yourself for a conference, are a local wanting to learn a new sport, an experienced fisherman or a first timer, why not give ice fishing a try while surrounded by the beautiful Rocky Mountains or the stunning prairies! Enjoy a truly Canadian experience!
Ice fishing in a hut or out in the open enjoying the fresh air and scenery around Banff and Calgary is a great way to experience the culture and traditions of Canada. When winter comes, the best thing to do until the next season of floating rivers and relaxing on lakes is to don the ski-doo suit, grab the auger, ice hut, sonar, and underwater video camera, and go ice fishing. Ice fishing has a long history throughout the world, and is an enjoyable way to spend the winter months and put some food on the table and in the smoker. One of ice fishing's allures is being able to watch the fish through the hole, or on the camera and sonar come up and take your hook.
When you are in an ice fishing tent, depending on water clarity, you are able to see down into the water, sometimes as deep as 50 feet! Peering down the hole, or using the underwater video cameras live feed and sonar, you can actually see the cruising fish inspect and take your lure! Your heart gets pumping long before they take the bait! It's fun to see them bump your hook a couple of times and then come and hammer it! It teaches you a lot about presentation to aid you in your summer fishing. Many people like ice fishing more than fishing in the summer!
