Ice fishing is starting to pick up in the local area with anglers reporting good success rates.
In Osceola County, “We have a bunch of fishermen out and about,” Brad Cox, of Buck’s Country Bait & Tackle Store in LeRoy said. “They’re out on McCoy Lake, Rose Lake, Wells Lake, Diamond and Sunrise for panfish, crappies, bluegills and pike. It’s about six inches of ice on all the lakes around here. About last week it kicked off.”
