Led by a licensed fishing captain, ice-fishing excursions begin as an ATV shepherds participants out to a roomy, heated icehouse sporting pre-drilled fishing holes. Participants can take advantage of the provided equipment, bait, and tackle as they sip home-brought beverages and wait for telling nibbles and tug-of-war invitations from whitefish and sportfish in the icy water down below, taking home anything they catch. Four-hour half-day trips can leave in the morning or afternoon, and all eight-hour full-day excursions depart in the morning.

More than three decades spent trolling the fish-filled waters of the Great Lakes have allowed USCG-licensed captain Kevin Williams to master the art of freshwater and ice fishing. While leading expeditions for intrepid participants both young and old, Kevin leverages his unparalleled knowledge of marine speakeasies to catch fish by surprise—and when that happens, the fisherfolk in his boat are ready and waiting with the proper angling gear, be it their own or Kevin's. The captain sets out on warm-weather trips in a 24-Foot Boulton Explorer Equipped with GPS/Sonar, Marine Band Radio, latest safety equipment, and a bathroom. Fishermen can keep whatever they catch, and may head home after the excursion with buckets full of whitefish, perch, and walleye.
