    First time ice fishing and it was a blast! It was very easy to book a tour, then reschedule it when we saw arctic weather in the forecast. We ended up with a beautiful afternoon and didn't even need the shelter. Dylan was a very personable and knowledgeable guide (I know, because I asked a million questions...) and we would be happy to fish with him again. We caught (and released) an unusual amount of arctic char which was quite exciting, a kissable sucker, and kept 6 rainbow trout! Dylan cleaned them for us and gave us the invaluable tip of how to pull out the spine and little bones after baking them.

    Had an Amazing Experience with Cooper! We recently had the pleasure of going on an ice fishing adventure with Cooper, and I must say, it was an unforgettable experience! From the very beginning, Cooper demonstrated immense knowledge and passion for ice fishing, making our trip not only enjoyable but also very informative. Cooper's expertise in finding the perfect fishing spots was impressive. He was well-equipped, ensuring our safety and comfort throughout the day. His patience and enthusiasm, especially when teaching us the finer points of ice fishing, made the experience accessible and fun for everyone in our group. What truly set Cooper apart was his warm and friendly demeanor. He went above and beyond to make sure we all had a great time, sharing stories and ensuring that every aspect of our trip was taken care of. His professionalism and dedication to his craft are evident in every interaction. The experience was not just about fishing; it was about creating lasting memories in the beautiful winter setting. Thanks to Cooper, we caught a good number of fish, and more importantly, we gained a newfound appreciation for ice fishing. I highly recommend Cooper to anyone looking for a top-notch ice fishing guide. Whether you're a seasoned angler or trying ice fishing for the first time, Cooper's guidance will undoubtedly make your experience a memorable one. Thank you, Cooper, for such a fantastic day on the ice!

    What a great day! Shout out to Amy Duncan with Big Ed’s Fishing Ventures. She was great she contacted me the night before and said the original planned location for fishing wasn’t great and advised a location change. Everyone in our group caught a fish and we kept enough for us to have for dinner! Highly recommend if your in Breckenridge area and want and adventure book with them and ask for Amy Duncan Thanks Again we had a blast!

    My family enjoyed the ice fishing. It was a fantastic experience. We got 12-13 fishes. Five keepers. Cooper is very nice and knowledgeable. His underwater camera added more fun to this fishing tour. We can watch fishes swimming and taking the bait under the ice. I also enjoyed the landscape and lake view. Sitting on the vast lake next to the majestic mountain itself is a great feeling. A unique experience and a beautiful memory!

    Definitely a 5+ star experience! It was our first time ice fishing and we didn’t quite know what to expect but after researching the options, we are so thankful we picked Big Ed’s and we definitely lucked out with Cooper as our guide as well. Not only did he find us so many fish, he also literally fished out our phone that fell in one of the holes. His patience, knowledge and overall kindness truly made this the highlight of our week in Breck. Our two sons have already requested this to be part of our annual trip and we are happy to do so! We’ll be requesting Cooper every year, but honestly had the best experience with the whole company. Highly recommend for a unique and unforgettable family experience! Thanks again, Cooper and Big Ed’s! We will see you next year!
