The dark time started and ground got it’s snow cover. Temperatures are dropping lower and lower, ice is getting thick and the middle winter is stepping in. This is the time to set up your ice fishing tent, bring in heater and enjoy fishing arctic chars even when it’s -30°C outside. Old local fishermen tell that Christmas time is the best time to fish for arctic char.

Polar Night isn’t so dark as most think it is. The sun still reflects from atmosphere and gives unique light for the sleeping land. The reflect is really often red, but white reflect has been the best for ice fishing. At it’s shortest the reflect lasts only for an hour in our location; Näätämö.
