HUNNEWELL, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will offer its third annual ice fishing workshop in Hunnewell, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m., on Jan. 21. This free workshop will take place at the Hunnewell Lake Conservation Area, located at 6503 Highway Z in Shelby County. Participants must preregister to attend this workshop by calling the MDC office in Hannibal at (573) 248-2530.

This ice fishing workshop will address basic ice safety, equipment instruction, fish identification, and hands-on experience fishing on the ice. MDC will provide bait and tackle, but participants are encouraged to bring their own gear, including clothes for cold weather, a chair, and a packed lunch as there are no local dining options.

MDC works with Missourians to provide educational opportunities and enriching outdoor experiences all year long. Ice fishing allows anglers to extend their fishing season and continue to harvest legal game fish species using unique methods.
