bozeman area ice fishing
« on: Feb 19, 2021, 05:36 PM »
I am a bozeman resident and i have never gone ice fishing (idk why im kinda nervous of ice) and im feeling a bit couped up lately and wanna try my luck at ice fishing.... im just curiou about the ice thickness around the bozeman area ponds (specifically the one next to the mall). just wondering if anyone in here fishes these local ponds and what the conditions are. also, what do you use when ice fishing? i have a ice pole and plenty of tackle, just not sure if you use different bait etc.

i know i sound like a total noob but any help would be appreciated.

That mall pond is a blast for ice fishing. Lots of bluegill and some bass. Not sure of the ice conditions as I donít live there anymore but Iím sure after this recent cold spell thereís plenty to fish on. Take a spud bar out and make sure itís solid. Wax worms or maggots on a small tungsten jig will do the trick. Pm me if you wanna talk more ice fishing
