February was quite cold as usual, unfortunately (or fortunately), I didn't have the time to fish too much. I did manage a half day trip to the St Lawrence River, weather was in the –15 range, more like –25 in the wind. I tried a variety of bait, including worms, minnows and even corn on some tip ups and ice fishing rods. We sat in the car with the heater on for this one instead of renting a cabin, we ended up "getting skunked", Not one bite in 4 hours. On the brighter side of things, we managed to keep the beer cold without a cooler…

Fish Species: Perch, walleye, pike, musky
Bait Used: Line Worms, Live minnows
Tackle Used: Tip ups, ice rods
Method Used: Still fishing, jigging
Water Depth: 5-8 feet
Water Temperature: 4 degrees celcius
Wind Direction: ?
Wind Speed: 20-25 KM / hour
