Looking to cure cabin fever? The New York DEC will team up with Newsday Columnist and Associate Editor of On the Water Magazine, Outdoor Tom Schlichter, to guide participants in a free ice fishing seminar and clinic on Saturday, February 6 from Noon to 2 p.m. It will be held at the Brookhaven Town Beach on Lake Ronkonkoma. The event is in conjunction with the Town of Brookhaven Parks and Recreation Department and the I FISH NY program will provide free fishing rods on loan and bait. No registration is required and the event is open for all anglers ages 10 and up. Participants are encouraged to bring a chair or stool and may opt to bring their own fishing rod and equipment. If there is safe ice on Lake Ronkonkoma participants will get a chance to try their hand at ice fishing. For more information on this great event, call 631-444-0283.
