It's the perfect time of the year for ice fishing and one hotel in Green lake is hoping to get more women to try out the sport.
The Drill Divas ice fishing package, offered by the Heidel House Resort and Spa, offers women the experience of ice fishing, all while having a great getaway with the girls.
"The ladies might not realize that ice fishing is not just about fishing, it's about the social aspect, it's fun, you still get to talk and bond, but it's different, and adventurous, and memorable," explains Heidel House marketing manager, Carrie Ivacko.
If you've always wanted to tackle ice fishing but have never had the opportunity, this is for you.
"The women come out here, they don't have to know about ice fishing, they come out here and it's an adventurous getaway."
With the help of fishing guide, Mike Norton, first-time ice fishers can easily get hooked on the sport.
"We've got all the equipment, we transport them back and we will show them how to do it," says Norton, "We'll be there for a little bit and we'll also get them all lined up to know what to do and then they just have to wait for the fish to bite!"
After a day on the ice, it'll be time to sit back, relax, and warm up at the spa.
"They get to walk the indoor labyrinth, there's a relaxation room, a waterfall whirlpool, steam room, and they also have a labyrinth heated stone massage which is the perfect way to warm up after being on the ice," explains Ivacko.
An angling adventure for the ages.
"Come on out and join the fun. I mean, this could give you some sort of a memory, or maybe inspire you."
They just don't offer this opportunity for the ladies. The Augers and Lagers package is also available for men. For more information on either package, click here.
