Ice is creeping over lakes in the north, safe ice is only days away if it hasn't arrived already. As ice anglers make their way onto the ice they largely return to trusted spots for an early bite. What about anglers on new bodies of water? What about when the trusted spots don't produce? How do you find fish ice fishing, on new water, when your mobility and access to the water is limited by a half-foot of frozen water? That's exactly what I asked Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame member Steve Pennaz.
