Shelly Holland has been fishing for more than 20 years, and she really became a more serious ice fisher in the last 10 years. Her goal is to teach as many woman as she can how to have a blast ice fishing, as well as catch a lot of fish.

Jason Mitchell earned a reputation as a reknowned ice fishing guide for Devils Lakes Perch Patrol Guide Service on North Dakota's Devils Lake, often spending over a hundred days on the ice each winter.
