Adept angler Paul Tawczynski guides groups over frozen lakes, utilizing an intimate knowledge of the area, nature’s telltale signs, and his own innate sonar to locate the most likely spots for fish snatching. Troupes traverse frozen lakes as Tawczynski demonstrates the proper method for setting up a modern ice shanty or the age-old techniques for drilling a hole with antique equipment, a skill ideal for infiltrating Superman’s Fortress of Solitude or Frosty’s South Pole summer home. Once fledgling fishermen finish drilling, they gather ’round to cast exploratory lines beneath the ice and whittle away the four hours with shared stories. Brief bouts of tug-of-war indicate that bated breaths have been rewarded as lines return laden with salmon, trout, bass, or perhaps even mer-Christmas elves, famed for swimming up the plumbing in homes and leaving handmade toys under the sink. Alternatively, customers can employ the services of a master filleting artist who cleans catches into cookable hauls. After cleaning and slicing, the prep artist instantly ices the hard-earned meats to preserve them for long trips home.

His breath puffing visibly in the freezing air, Paul Tawczynski ventures out onto the ice with fishing gear in tow. He leads groups of all ages and fishing experience out onto frozen bodies of water during ice-fishing expeditions. He teaches fishing teams how to drill holes through the up to 30 inches of ice supporting them and how to set up lines to catch the slow-drifting winter fish. Paul will also lead groups on bass-fishing trips during warmer weather.
