Montana’s Tiber Lake Still Producing Fish Through the Ice

By: Chris Shaffer At this same time last year I was boarding a plane and film Pautzke Outdoors in Northern Montana when Kim Anthony of Ice Fishing Montana called me and told me to stay home. The ice was unsafe, if not gone, she said. Meanwhile, this year is much different. While we filmed on [...]

Upon arrival we noticed more than 100 anglers already set up [...]
