Here are a few photos of winter fishing and spearing. Non-residents can now purchase a licence to winter spear for northerns and rough fish.
 
You can now fish an spear at the same time in the same hole.
You can use two lines per person in the winter, but the decoy line counts as one if you are spearing while fishing.
