Ice Fishing was a game played outside the Ski Lodge which can be accessed by clicking on the wooden door with a fish above it. The objective of the game is to catch as many fish as possible before the game ends. The penguin (which is your player) fishes through a hole in the ice. Underneath the hole lay fish but also other potentially dangerous obstacles such as Crabs, Jellyfish and Sharks. The maximum number of yellow fish the player can catch is 64. The player starts out with 3 worms for bait and can catch bonus bait throughout the game. The player can catch Grey Fish if you have the Flashing Lure Fishing Rod, but they are harder to catch.
Pink Puffles with a mask and snorkel swim past occasionally with a banner. The banner often warns the player of something to come. The reason it is a pink one is because Pink Puffles can swim very well. It used to be a Blue Puffle, until the Flashing Lure Fishing Rod came out.
The Mullet is the big, red, fish at the end of the game. You can see a stuffed version of it hanging on the wall in the Ski Lodge. You can catch it by getting a smaller fish and when it goes across the screen have the fish. It will try to eat it. You will get a 100 coin bonus if it is caught.
At the last part of the game, there will be a giant, red, fish. It is the Mullet. Use a yellow fish or a grey fish as bait for the Mullet to lure it. Then, you will earn 100 coins as a reward for catching it.
If you buy a Flashing Lure Fishing Rod from the Game Upgrades catalog and then play Ice Fishing wearing it, you will see that you are catching grey fish in addition to yellow fish. Each Grey Fish will get you double the amount of coins than a yellow fish will, also, there will be more yellow fishes when the Mullet is coming.
Near the first part of the game, try catching the Grey Fish instead of the yellow fish but you will have to wait for the fish to swim by. If you are near the end, try waiting for a while. If you think the Grey Fish will not swim by, just catch the yellow fish and the mullet (but if you can catch both, you should do so).
On February 29, 2008, an addition to this game launched. It was a special fishing pole that you could buy from the Snow and Sports catalog, which was later moved to the Game Upgrades catalog.
Stamps for the game were released on April 25, 2011, along with a new title screen.
There is a pink puffle that will swim across the screen after a while, warning the player about hazards. However, the puffle used to be blue.
A screenshot of this game can be seen on one of the computer screens in the Everyday Phoning Facility.
In the Club Penguin app version, there is an extra pink puffle that gives information that you need catch 60 fish to win.
The theme song is called Paris St Germain by Jeremy Sherman
When grabbing the mullet the sound for the fishing rod is actually a roulette wheel.
