Fishing while sporting a tuque and mittens is fascinating because it’s a bit weird. But fishing on the ice can still be a thrill! Under frozen bodies of water, brook trout, also known as speckled trout, continue to dart about during the cold season and can be fished. They’re as hungry in winter as in summer and ready to take the bait!
