the second annual king of the bay ice fishing contest brought around 200 high school anglers to Ashland. They were on the hunt for nearly ten different species.
"It brings a lot of people in the area that don't come up here, " said Paul Neveaux.
Neveaux coaches the Ashland team, and his son Logan competes. On Saturday, they fished together while the rest of the team tried their luck across the lake.
"If we could, we'd fish every day," Paul said. "Sometimes we do real good, sometimes it's slow. today is a slow day. We have three perch and we caught one northern. Other times you can catch that in an hour."
"It changes based on the weather and different areas," Logan said. "If it's slow in this spot you might have to move to a different spot and redo all your equipment based on the fish and the species."
With so many lakes around the state, it's no wonder more and more ice fishing teams are popping up.
"It breaks up the winter for the students,"Paul said. "A lot of them don't play hockey or basketball, and it's something other kids like to do, ice fish."
Win or lose, it's never a wasted day on the lake.
"It means a lot to me," Logan said. "It's what I like to do, and I get to spend time with other people from the state that do the same thing I like to do."
