McFeely Mess podcast: With conditions almost perfect, it's a busy ice fishing season

There is good ice (mostly) and little snow, meaning anglers are getting out in masses

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Minnesota fishing expert Tony Mariotti joins podcast host Mike McFeely for an ice fishing update. With the pandemic, good ice conditions and little snow there is clearly an uptick in ice fishing. Lots of big fish houses and, at many places, lots of fish being caught.

Tony and Mike talk about that, as well as whether the DNR should start cutting back panfish limits. That's a road well-traveled by these two anglers, but it's worth visiting again.
