The cold maybe here today, however it will not last long enough to for make safe ice fishing conditions on Lake Makinkuckee in Culver, Indiana. The NAIFC, North America Ice Fishing Circuit, Culver Qualifier has been cancelled for 2017 due to the lack of ideal ice fishing conditions. Northern Indiana’s unusually warm weather and rain this past week has made it impossible to have a safe competition. Unfortunately, with the qualifier being cancelled, this also cancels the Cabela’s Kids Ice Camp, Saturday February 11, 2017. The Kids Ice Camp is part of the NAIFC tournament events.
