Every year, thousands of people camp on the shores of Lake Champlain, but very few actually spend a night on the lake -- especially in the heart of winter. Yet that is exactly what some dedicated anglers do on Missisquoi Bay, where the ice fishing can be as hot as the weather is cold. We hit the hard water of Missisquoi Bay on Lake Champlain to enjoy some exciting ice fishing for northern pike. And experience a comfy night on the ice thanks to Gilbert Gagne of Martin’s Store in Highgate Springs where we rented our overnight accommodations. We also meet up with a group of anglers that have made spending the night on the ice an annual tradition.
