Pheasants Forever to offer ice fishing

Friday, February 1, 2013

A day on the ice is being planned by the Plymouth County Chapter of Pheasants Forever this month.

The ice fishing event for young people and their families is part of the Pheasants Forever's "No Child Left Indoors" effort, according to Randy Reardon of the local Pheasants Forever chapter.

"We're trying to get everybody, in the middle of winter, outside doing something instead of watching TV," he said.

Fishing will be offered by Pheasants Forever from 1-5 p.m. Feb. 10, just north of Le Mars at 16999 Fourth Ave.

The event location is the former Groetken gravel pit and is owned by John Koley, of Le Mars, Reardon said.

People ice fishing Feb. 10 may catch perch, blue gills or maybe even a walleye or two, he said.

Four Seasons Bait and Tackle will drill holes for ice fishing, provide the bait, a lot of fishing poles and offer a prize of an ice rod and reel.

Young people under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult and those 16 and older must have a 2013 state of Iowa fishing license.

Hot dogs, chips and soda will also be available without charge.

"Even though it is a free event, we'd like people to register by calling Victoria De Vos at 712-947-4270 or me at Yamaha Golf at 540-4966," Reardon said.
