Short of fish leaping out of the hole into your bucket, this is about as easy of an ice fishing trip that you can go on. Gary Moeller of Ballard's Resort on Lake of the Woods says all the equipment is provided and expert guides will help you achieve success. Townsquare Media is hosting a bus trip to Ballard's February 5-8, 2018. The signup deadline is approaching.

Moeller says it is an all-inclusive trip between the gear for fishing and meals provided. Ballard's has a full-service restaurant, but he says you can expect to eat some fish while on the trip. Anglers will be driven out to the warm fishing houses in warm vehicles. Experts will assist those that need some advice.

This coming excursion has added an extra night at the resort, so attendees get another night of sleep before departing for the ride home. John Anderson of KDHL / Power 96 radio in Faribault is a big fan of the event and is looking forward to the new itinerary.

The cost is $530 per person. Call 1-800-PRO-CORK (1-800-776-2675) to make a reservation or ask questions.
