What a better way to spend a calm winter day in the outdoors than ice fishing on Lake Benton. The camaraderie found on the ice, from alerting a nearby angler of an unseen flag or exchanging fishing tips, is just one aspect that makes ice fishing so enjoyable.

Enjoy the winter day catching walleye, northern pike, black crappie, bluegill and yellow perch.
