Ice Fishing with Caleb!


Ice Fishing with Caleb!

January 6, 2019


10:30 am to 4:00 pm on
Location TBA (Within 30 minutes of Trinity)

This is Caleb Niedfeldt, who heads up a ministry called Fishing for the Heart.  Caleb is part of the Lutheran Special School faculty.  He’s passionate about fishing, and regularly leads fishing excursions to nearby lakes, teaching kids about Jesus, while he teaches them about fishing.  We’ve gotten to know Caleb by having him take some of our guys out fishing during men’s retreats in years past.  

And now he wants to invite members and friends of members of Trinity to an afternoon of ice-fishing!  Last year’s event, if you remember, was quite windy and cold, so we’re hoping for a better afternoon of fishing this year.
Caleb prepares everything! At arrival holes will be drilled and shanties ready to go. We will have a short teaching period on fishing and safety.

Never ice-fished before?  You will learn how to jig, how to set a tip-up and successful ways to catch fish.

What is the cost? The trip is free for participants with donations appreciated.

What does this include? All equipment; shanties, heaters, tip-ups, jig rods, automatic ice-fisherman, jigs and all terminal tackle), Bait (shiners, suckers, waxies, spikes).  Guiding (2-3 guides per group), all holes drilled with Jiffy Augers prior to fishing and a grilled lunch. (Brats, hotdogs, soda and chips).

Who can come? We have enough equipment for up to 50 people, but we’ll need a minimum 10 to do this.

“Hello my name is Caleb Niedfeldt. I am the director at a local non-profit called Fishing for the Heart. God has given us many opportunities here in Wisconsin to enjoy his wonderful creation in the cold winter months and one of those opportunities is the sport of ice fishing. I believe it is our responsibility as parents and educators to teach and provide outdoor pursuits to our kid’s. I have a passion for teaching and guiding in the sport of fishing and hope to see a lot of Trinity folks on January 6th.
